A heat-packed gallery/warehouse space was the setting for the opening night of Art Share L.A.’s “Big Hair: The Life & Times of Tomata du Plenty”, a two-day retrospective of the artworks of Tomata du Plenty, ex-Screamers frontman, Cockette and artist….whose paintings are the focus of this particular exhibit. For many in the large crowd of old school LA and San Francisco punks – musicians, artists and scenesters, it was a chance to reconnect, a reunion of sorts and an opportunity to share fond memories of the lead Screamer. Also, many new fans came to get a close up view of what the legend is all about. Along with portraits, large works and photos, there were music tributes by ex-Screamers bandmate Paul Roessler with Rikk Agnew, Gitane Demone and Deb Venom; and the Groovy Rednecks whose frontman includes close du Plenty friend Tex Troester. Tonight is the final opportunity to to view a wide variety of du Plenty’s artworks collected for this exhibit, to catch more musical tributes (Kristian Hoffman, Dick and Jane Family Orchestra, don juan remainder., Knitts) and a chance to connect with the large amount of fans that posthumously du Plenty still brings together.
