Pearl Thompson art exhibit in L.A. next year

From Express:
"Ex-Cure star to exhibit art for the first time
Former THE CURE guitarist PORL THOMPSON is set to unveil his artwork for the first time at a gallery launch in Los Angeles next year (15).

The musician, who now goes by the name Pearl Thompson, has never exhibited his multi-media paintings before.
They will go on display at the Mr. Musichead gallery for three weeks from 5 March (15).
Gallery owner Sam Milgrom tells WENN, "He came to an event at the gallery recently and played a set - just him and a guitar. We got chatting and he told me he had never exhibited his artwork. I took a look and it's wonderful. I can't wait to display it."
Thompson was part of the original 1976 line-up of The Cure. He has played on many of the group's albums."

'Cut Here' at Denver Riot Fest 2014

Cut Here - Denver, Riot Fest 20-Sep-2014 from itsaperfectday on Vimeo.

Thanks to Olivier at it's a perfect day. Absolutely wonderful! Thank you, Robert!

That was only the 6th time 'Cut Here' has been played live (though one was a Simon Mayo radio session). 2 times in 2001 (was also "played" on Top of the Pops in Germany, but wasn't live), 3 times in 2002. Last was July 23rd, 2002 in Rome. This is the 1st time it's been played in the US.
