Precious Moments

Posted by on July 12 at 10:36 AM

Next time you’re at Re-Bar, I suggest paying attention to the walls. More specifically, to the walls across from the bar, where Tara Thomas’s latest installment of ugly made….um…odd hangs in a series of paintings. The local artist, also known for painting pictures of pop culture icons as Sloth from Goonies, has a new crop of paintings of crazy looking ladies reclining and staring dazed from their bedrooms. The opening last night, in true Tara style, was a mixture of trash to treasure comedy and low-brow fun. Her new “band” stars Connie Merlot (aka a softer side of Ursula Android’s human form, Marcus Wilson) and Ross from the Cripples. It’s pure cover song comedy…look for them again under the name Connie Merlot’s Precious Moments.
