Magers and Quinn (independent bookstore) are inviting folks down for a poster sale to celebrate the release of Gig Posters Volume I: Rock Show Art of the 21st Century
if you aren’t familiar with the 11-by-14-inch paperback of rock art, it features gig posters from a ton of cool artists – including local favs: DWITT, Squad 19, Tooth, Amy Jo, Lonny Unitus and Burlesque of North America – and their rock posters created for First Avenue, 7th Street Entry, 400 Bar, Triple Rock Social Club and other music venues across the country..

33 designs gallery | Sat May 2nd | 7pm – 12am
if you missed the opening of this graffiti show, then here’s your chance to redeem yourself.. the show features some of my fav artists, including: Give Up, Nate Szklarski (Mpls Deth Crew), Steve Tenebrini (Squad 19), Chris Krapohl, Rudy Fig, Danny Sigelman, Erin Sayer and Deuce Seven
the gallery is a bit off the beaten path, but the show is 100% worth it – cross my heart..
there’s also show @ circa and traffic zone is having their spring open studio tonight, with 27 artists participating – including mr ozone

making lists.. crossing things off lists.. this is a huge part of my life.
for those who don’t know, i recently joined the millions of unemployed folks in this country. i’m trying not to take it too personally. i know i did a great job and that i was appreciated there – the economics simply dictated massive layoffs at tc. honestly, i feel good that i survived the 2008 cuts and made it to the finals. damn. i knew i should have asked for less money when they offered me the position ;)
but what’s past is past and i’ll land on my feet as always. it only means that my lists of things to-do are growing even longer than normal.. that said, here are some things that you should be aware of this week:
solid gold is playing @ the uptown bar this wednesday (jan 28th) – prob $5-8 dollars @ the door and well worth it..
Cliche is having a fashion show @ old arizona this thursday (jan 29) from 8pm – 10pm, featuring local designers: Amanda Christine Designs, kjurek couture, Ivan Idland, Martiza Ramirez/Anthem Heart, Karmadandi, Niki English, Jenny Carle, Arwyn Birch, Peloria, Renate Adjei, Red Shoe Clothing Co., Emily Weich, Carmichael Claith.. Tickets are $8.00 (very limited space so tickets needs to be purchased in advance!) and you can get them at the store (2403 Lyndale Avenue s).
steve tenebrini of squad19 has some super cool screen prints available that feature artwork from his daughter & glow-in-the-dark eyes! only $50 bucks (if i were still employed I would snatch the one with gene simmons up immediately)..
rift magazine needs your attention for a minute… this is my favorite local mag and i hope that everyone will cough up a few bucks so we can see another issue in print. sure, the online version is great, but it’s nice to have something you can actually touch. i feel so “oldschool” when i actually hold a paper anymore.. go there and make a donation to the worthy cause – it’ll make you feel good. really.
more coming soon.. no really – i’m back.
if you missed the opening of the squad19 group show last night, don’t stress – it runs through october 31st.
The exhibition features paintings, prints and custom toys by AmyJo, DC Ice, DWITT, Punchgut, Lon Unitus, Aaron Purmort, Adam Turman, Steve Tenebrini, Tooth and more…
ok the image is a bit misleading.. you cannot get this print @ this show.. but it is a squad19 poster and i thought it might get your attention. sorry. i wish i was announcing a queens show..
gallery 122 is located @ 122 8TH St SE Minneapolis
now through october 31st, gallery hours are here
