Is a planet in retrograde? Is this a streak of bad luck? Is this the end of the world? It’s nearing the end of 2016 and shit has hit the fan on all fronts. Clinton and Trump making a fool…
A few weeks back the amazing VIRGO invited me to a preview event for her new EP and Video Game. Of course I gladly said YES! I mean, her music alone was enough for me to be interested. Once I heard there was a video game aspect involved too I knew I had to go see what’s up! More on that later. If you aren’t familiar with VIRGO you can see her featured in one of my previous CULT TRENDS here, and of course there will be some lovely links later on in this post for you to find out more about her.
Last Friday, I went to Pancakes and Booze at LMNT to scope out the scene and grab me a few pancakes after work. Naturally, as a broke college student, when an event invite involves the phrase “ALL YOU CAN EAT PANCAKES” there is a 90% chance I’ll show up. Plus, three of my fave DJ friends Nigby, Enzymatique, and Atman, were providing the tunes for the night and being the audiophile (and pancake aficionado) that I am, there was no way I was missing this event. I dragged my tired behind across the causeway after work, grabbed my plate of pancakes and walked the room searching for fresh faces and fresh fits. I was not disappointed.
Hit & Run, opening this Thursday, August 9th at Gregg Sheinbaum Gallery in Wynwood, is a retrospective of AholSniffsGlue’s work. The exhibition features pieces that date back to and before his official debut at Butter Gallery two years ago and includes his memorable characters and infamous eyeballs along with more recent works, some never seen before.
