THEY ARE PLAYING BEAUMONT TONIGHT!
go ahead and listen to the latest episode of The Local Scene for a bunch more goodies, too!
and come see a great show at LogOn Cafe!
happening this saturday
at the Victoria House.
we will be showing our original film about Victorian “it girl” Alexicon, during the event. you won’t be expected to sit down and watch it all the way through, but you are welcome to lay on the floor in bask in it if you feel so inclined.
we would like as many photographers on hand as possible. if you own a camera, bring it, or be prepared to live with that regret. the whole house is a perfect backdrop, and we want all of your marvelous outfits to be documented. give us a link to your pics afterwards and we promise you an internet shout-out and our eternal love.
we’ll have a keg of fresh home brew on hand for everyone to try for free thanks to the boys of BREWMONT. But it won’t last forever, so come early for that and remember to BYOB. they will hold a contest to pin a name on the mystery beer.
there will also be live screenprinting during the event, so you can take home something to remember the night by. bring your own blank t-shirt or whatever, and get an original warhol-inspired design by DUMB DUDS printed just for you. this is donation based, so please throw in a couple bucks if you can.
you wouldn’t miss it for the world, just trust us.
PLEASE CARPOOL. we’re trying to be a good neighbor. you WILL get a ticket if you park faced the wrong direction, and the cops WILL come out if you block anyone’s driveway or act a fool on the streets. let’s not have that.
it’s our unofficial four year anniversary today!
HERE’S TO MANY MORE!
and here’s some pictures of one of the first house shows we had,
The Poisoned Pizza Party

showing at High Street Gallery
on Sept 5
“The best way I try to describe my work is a mixture of pop art with abstract/neo expressionism. I say this because I like the thought of taking ordinary and mundane things we see all the time and distorting, simplifying, and just plain making the piece say ‘Here I am!’ along with vibrant colors as well. I also embrace the beauty of imperfection too because I’m not a perfect person and I want my art to be an extension of myself.
My influences are countless, but the ones that always sneak their way into my paintings are Picasso, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. All were so prolific and never afraid to raise the bar or push the boundaries of art.
If people are happy and inspired to create from what I do, then I’ve done my job as an artist.”

The talented crew of Tattoos By Mundo have turned their shop temporarily into a painting studio in preparation for their art show at HIGH STREET GALLERY this Friday!
This will be the gallery’s return from our summer break and we are very excited about all the new stuff happening! Come see!
our second annual Victoria House performative dress party is based on Andy Warhol's Silver Factory between 1962 and 1968.
your party attire should be styled after your favorite artsy subculture of the era or else anything extremely self expressive. you can dress as a specific warhol superstar or be your own superstar self. feel free to behave completely in character. it would be foolish to wear cargo shorts. it would be wise to bring a camera.
the party is free to attend and everyone is welcome, but we will be soliciting donations for our House Fund. we promise it will be worth your while.
there will be a dance floor. and we might be premiering an original film starring a Victorian superstar, Alexicon. we will most likely also feature a performance by Olivia Gardner.
here’s some collections of pictures we put together for your inspiration:
