Droppin' Drawers

The city of Austin is blessed by an amazing artistic culture. As supportive members of the art community, Mason and I went to a couple events last week. On Wednesday, we stopped by the Okay Mountain gallery on Austin's east side to check out the Droppin Drawers show. The exhibit showcased such celebrated artists as Maya Hayuk, Porous Walker and - my personal favorite - Julie Peppito, whose work is shown below. I found myself wandering among characters in her vibrant fantasy world.

The following night, we saw the Broken Social Scene show at Stubb's. I recommend you check out the opening group Do Make Say Think, which includes several of the performers from BSS.The show was amazing - BSS never disappoints - and the surprises were endless. Amy Milan from Stars surfed the crowd, two members of local favorite Explosions in the Sky joined the stage, and a large intoxicated man vomitted on my back. yummy.
