Event Notification: Lost: Graffiti in the City of Angels

October 20, 2008

33third has been throwing some great live expos recently and I know they were working on expanding into a gallery space last time I stopped by there.  I’m assuming that Mid City Arts is the fruit of their labor here and I’m glad that this show is going to still be running when I’m back in L.A. again for a minute over Thanksgiving. (Opens Saturday Nov. 1st @ 7 and the show runs until Dec. 1st.)  The exhibit will is curated by Eye One and will feature art from Besk, Bonks, Cab, Goshe, Kopye, Kozem, Mandoe, Neo, 7Dee, and more.  It’s probably worth checking out for the Cab stuff alone.  The book that’s coming out alongside the exhibit features a bunch of L.A. legends like Ayer and Atlas but I don’t know if they’re going to be in the show.  It’s kind of hard to imagine that their names wouldn’t be listed as a major selling point.  You can check out the preview pdf of the book here and you can find out more about lost projects at their site.

Mid City Arts is located at 5113 Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90019

List of LA BoaDrummers Released

August 7, 2008

For any of you that don’t know tomorrow, August 8th (8/8/08), The Boredoms will be following up last year’s 77BoaDrum. The BoaDrum events are massive drum circles, this year’s will consist of 88 kits, manned by an ever increasing list of impressive musicians performing one epic piece composed by Eye of Boredoms tailored to the event. Last years piece was 77 minutes, this year’s will be 88. For this year’s event the Boredoms have expanded their vision and will be coordinating two separate circles, one in New York (led by Brooklyn’s Gang Gang Dance) and one in Los Angeles.

Wiki had this handy list of drummers and the band’s they’re in. For space’s sake I’m only going to be posting the Los Angeles drummers Read the rest of this entry »
