This weekend is the Post-It 8 show opening at Giant Robot 2. So many great artists involved! These openings are always packed so if you're planning to buy some at $25 each, come early and write your name on the signup sheet. If you're not buying any, just come by after dinner, say hello to good looking peoples, look at art, ponder life, lurk around, and go home a better person.

Krotona was founded in 1911 by the Theosophical Society as a Utopian community of universal inquiry. The original site in what is now the Hollywood Hills harbored a compound of eclectic architecture and acted as a refuge for unconventional religious, philosophical and creative culture in Southern California.
This largely forgotten experiment is but one of several in California that reflects the region as a haven for visionary culture that persists to this day. Shangri-LA investigates this legacy, the amnesia of progress and current notions of Utopia. The exhibition combines installation, art, presentations and sound by a current generation who thrive in the shadow of the pioneers of independent thought. Shangri-LA is on display from August 17 through September 1.

Also, here's some music I've been working on with my brothers.
