Performance. A Short Run: Bad Evil and The Dirty Germs

As part of the exhibition A Short Run: A Selection of New Zealand Lathe-Cut Records, a series of gigs and events featuring leading artists in New Zealand’s rich underground music scene will take place in the gallery from March to May 2021.


On 14th May we will be hosting Bad Evil and The Dirty Germs.


Join notorious masked guitar-slinger Bad Evil and his faithful sidekicks The Dirty Germs for a wild evening of dirty garage rock 'n’ roll at CoCA. Hailing from Pahiatua, and achieving national infamy alongside a small group of other weirdos operating under the banner of Stink Magnetic Records, Bad Evil grants you an all access pass to good times.


A Short Run: A Selection of New Zealand Lathe-Cut Records – curated by Luke Wood, Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design at the Ilam School of Fine Arts – explores the intersection between music and design in the radical margins of New Zealand culture.


A Short Run is developed and toured by Objectspace and The Dowse Art Museum.
