Gadfly – Court of little public opinion


Gadfly was momentarily beguiled by a poster in Sydney’s east – an advertisement for a performance by the Sydney Art Quartet at the Yellow House, called Butt Naked.

Apparently it’s restricted to people 18 years and over because it contains nudity and stars Alan Jones.

Will the dear old butterball, the protector of public decency, shed his fetching yellow, cream and gold ensemble with matching tie and hanky to hang about with the inner-city elites in some sort of confronting performance?

Sadly, no. It’s Alan Jones the artist who is daubing the walls of the Yellow House with nudes to the accompaniment of Schubert, Sculthorpe and Finzi. 

At least another door has opened, as the strip clubs of Darlinghurst Road close.
