A couple of “below the radar” events tonight

A couple of free events are taking place tonight that involve the artistic and creative activities of some of my friends. There has been some minor local coverage for these events, but it’s been mostly word of mouth.

Local artist, John Grider, will have work on display at the grand opening of First Amendment Gallery, an art gallery/print studio/movement. His stencil art is on display at various locations around town, and tonight you can find him at 1101 Stinson Blvd NE, at Broadway. The gallery is in Basement A & B. This is an all ages event, with no cover, that will have music by POS and Paper Tiger (Doomtree), The Seawhores, Andrew Broder and Tim Glenn (Fog), and DJs Mike the 2600 King and Espada (Impressive Fource). There will be other live entertainment as well, and live t-shirt printing. Refreshments are available. It starts at 7 and goes until it ends. Whenever that is.

If you can drag yourself away from that, around 11:30, head to the Uptown Theater for a free screening of Cosmic Dissonance. It’s at midnight and did I mention it’s free? My friend Samantha worked as a grip, as well as taking production stills. The City Pages gave a capsule review of it this week, which praised the movie for its imagery and shot composition.

Oh, yeah, and entrance for both of these events is a whopping FREE.

    Thanks for the heads-up! I live in the neighborhood, so I swung by and checked out the art. Very interesting stuff.
