Saturday: New Work by Dylan Reece @ Mass October 16, 2009
“On view from October 17th to November 7th, Funky Junction Oracles employs a variety of media — prints, photography, painting, animated GIFs, and sculpture — to illustrate Reece’s attempt to fix meaning in a world characterized by ever increasing flows of information and rapid change in the complexity of social systems. Drawing from a range of sources that include the pop-metaphysics of the ’70s, the classical art of Greece and Rome, the internet, vintage nature books, rave culture, and Modernism in art, the imagery for much of the work is unified by an underlying sense of idealism and progress gone awry.”
Here are some of Dylan’s previous works:
Thursday: Sanctuary’s One Year Anniversary July 23, 2009
Austin has such wonderful locally-owned gift shops that sell local handmade goods. Sanctuary is one of those boutiques, and they just won “Best Decor Boutique” and “Best Gifts” at the Austin Fashion Awards. I’ve been looking forward to their one-year anniversary party, and it is tonight! Local design team Studio 3 will be doing live screen printing. You will also find some Etsy Austin goods at Sanctuary!

Tuesday: Josh Small and Tim Barry at Emo’s lounge September 25, 2007
Austin <3s Richmond, and Richmond is coming to Austin. Anyone ever heard of a little band called Avail? Tim Barry from Avail is playing solo tonight in the Emo’s lounge. I am a huge fan of Josh Small, who appears to be touring with Tim Barry.
See you at Emo’s Lounge.
Thursday: The Sea and Cake @ The Parish September 20, 2007
This is the night I have been waiting for since I was first introduced to the Sea and Cake when I was 17 years old. I have a passionate love affair with this band. Last year singer Sam Prekop opened for Stereolab at La Zona Rosa, and it was a disaster. The sound was terrible. I asked the sound man there if there wasn’t something he could do, and he told me the sound was set up for Stereolab. Dang.
I love tonight, and I’m not even there yet.
