Blackest of the Black Festival feat. Danzig comes to NYC October 15th.
The Roseland Ballroom’s celebration of dark, metal is not for the faint of heart or weak of ears. Glenn Danzig’s headlines, along with Norway’s Dimmu Borgir sound like turbocharged chants from the Middle Ages, with raspy verses and captivating orchestral passages — they’d be perfect for a horror-movie soundtrack. Portuguese metalheads Moonspell wield guttural screams and driving bass lines, while Winds of Plague and Skeletonwitch bring more variations on the theme. For more info check out Flavorpill.
I first became familiar with Mike Giant‘s work in 1993 when a package arrived in the mail from San Francisco. The contents of said package included a bunch of 11″ x 17″ photocopies of drawings made on freight trains, from that moment on I was sold. Fast forward to 2008, those drawings are lost but Mike Giant keeps on.
His latest solo show at White Walls in San Francisco opens tomorrow night and contains a vast amount of his crisp, black on white drawings that have come to define his style. After the jump, some of my favorites that are still available for purchase.
Opening tomorrow night at OK OK Gallery is Josh Keyes‘ latest show ‘Mist’. Half of the pieces in the show reference the areas native population in various studies of totem poles, my favorite being the one above. If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, make the trek out to see this. No disappointments.
Previewing tonight and opening tomorrow is Dan Witz’s latest show ‘Night Paintings’ at Stolen Space in London. Witz’s oil paintings are unbelievable in person, so if you happen to be in the future capital of finance stop by for a look. A quick preview and press release after the jump.
This Saturday sees the opening of two respective solo shows at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC. Amused Loon is an exhibition of new paintings by Damon Soule and Chris Mendoza’s Daily Habit is comprised of twenty ink-on-handmade paper and carving-on-Masonite works. Both are talented artists and these shows are a must see.
