Getting Sweaty and Radar Alert

Sweatshop Gallery will present artwork by Texan Tim Kerr, whose musical fingerprints lie on several strains of punk and garage music. The show will open Friday, May 16, with live music from Killer Blow, Solid Goldberg, Snake Island! and The Broke Loose. Kerr was a founding member of Austin’s trailblazing 1980s skate punk act the Big Boys, who alongside acts like the Dicks helped pave an iconic and distinct strain of Austin punk rock that still influences that city today. Kerr subsequently turned his attention to producing a gassed-up, lacerating strain of garage-punk bands, mainly out of the Sweatbox in Austin. Meanwhile, Kerr played in bands including the Lord High Fixers and Poison 13. Kerr’s visual art is now takingcenter stage.
