Art and music come together, deliver punk rock with a heart

FRISCO – Jeremy Greene is trying to start an independent subculture in Summit County.

The 20-year-old artist and musician is hosting an art and music night, featuring his abstract acrylic paintings and three punk bands.

The Stimulants, Punkaholics and National Blacklist flesh out the theme of the night: punk rock with a heart.

“We’re talking about respect here,” Greene wrote on his flyer. “Come only with a positive attitude, and if you can’t respect the studio, the artwork in the studio and each other, then go home.”

The punk bands have played at Wild Bill’s Pizza Saloon, the Moose Jaw and Red Crayon studio. National Blacklist is the most intense band, with influences from East Coast hard-core punk. Punkaholics play more pop-oriented, mainstream punk, covering such bands as the Ramones and the Misfits. The Stimulants play almost all original old-school-style punk.

Greene will show about 25 of his paintings, ranging in size from 16-by-20 inches to eight-by-two feet. He tends to drip colors on the canvas and see what emerges. His two favorites are a piece with red, yellow, green, blue and gray that turned out looking like a forest fire and a piece of an outline of a nude woman with abstract color blocking inside the body and blended colors outside.

Art and music night begins at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Red Crayon studio, in the alley between Third and Fourth streets off of Main Street in Frisco.
