this and that and a show at the black cat
Mixology II; Doctors without Borders benefit at Curator’s Office. Featuring a limited edition cocktail by the ever-indispensable Kathryn Cornelius—titled Earth Worms Are Easy—and photos by Kathryn, Nick and Sheila Pye, Victoria F. Gaitan, Max Cook, Frank Day, Jason Horowitz, Cliff Evans—hey, those are all good folks! Sounds like there’s barely room for the art, much less the artists, so be prepared for an intimate experience.

Conner Contemporary’s 10th anniversary ACADEMY show. Featuring Calder Brannock, Kate Demong, Michael Dotson, Philip Hinge, Mindy Hirt, Timothy Horjus, Chie Iwasaki, Benjamin Kelley, Joyce Lee, Christina Martinelli, Katie Miller, Jenny Yang, Michelle Yo, and Ting Zhang.
I might be at CO tonight, but I doubt I’ll see you—will be super-early and brief.
I will not be at Conner, as much as I would like to be. Why? I’ll be busy revisiting my youth at The Black Cat. Unrest! Versus! 26 years of Teenbeat records! Why, yes, I do have a babysitter for the night, thank you very much. (When you condemn certain bands as "dad rock", you know you're talking about me, right?) See below, in case you're not of a certain age.
