3 Nights, 3 HappeningsPosted on Jul 6, 2010 in art, brooklyn, drumming, End Is Near, frenchtown, music, top soil | 1 comment
Last weekend was huge for me. On Thursday, I had my opening at The End Is Near in Brooklyn. My three paintings looked great next to Norbert and Anna’s work. All of the paintings are displayed in the front room of the gallery/shop while a summer bbq occurred on the back patio. There was a great crowd and a lot of good friends there. Thanks to everyone who came out! The show will continue to be up for about a month, so if you’re in Park Slope, definitely check it out.
Friday night was another art event but for a very different cause. Organized by the Gasket Goons, the Charity Art Show was a huge success. The show had work by over 20 artists, showcased salon-style in the Phillipsburg garage space. The work was sold off silent-auction style and raised over 6,000 dollars for the family of the late Army Sgt. Sean M. Durkin. Accompanying the auction was a killer party with music, drinks, a hot dog truck and tons of cars-not to mention tons of people.
Saturday Top Soil had a show at The National Hotel’s first annual National Palooza. It was super hot out but people still came out and danced. We’ve been playing a bunch of new songs that are going to be on the new album we’ve been recording. Check out some images from the weekend’s activities!
