September, the art galleries of Los Feliz, Silver Lake, & Echo
Park in Los Angeles present The
Art Crawl, which is a free, self-guided tour, open to the public,
which showcases the art galleries in our area.
in Los Feliz, an eclectic community of artists, writers, actors,
and musicians, The Derby
hosted the kick-off party for The Art Crawl, and what a party it
Many performers graced the stage on Sept. 19th, including TV
Sheriff (aka Davey Force/Dave Foss - video mixing whore!), Green
Jello (aka Green Jelly) (psycho metal monsters), Nu-Tra
(Devo-esque synth gods!), Simone
Gad, and Freedom Corps. International.
The venue was packed all night, and the bar was constantly busy
providing poisons to the masses. Neal X of Sigue
Sigue Sputnik stopped by, as did the DiCaprios, Jerry Casale
of Devo, and other interesting
Mark, however, could not make the opening due to an unexpected family
matter in Ohio which came up literally at the last minute. However,
he was very glad to hear that the party was a full-blown success.
Thanks to Amber Willow and Daniel Hebenstriet of The Derby who worked
so hard to set all this up, and to everyone who made time to come
out to the party! Here's to visiting you in LA soon...
