This Saturday: Uncle Charlie's Poster Art @ Sig's [6/20/2008 02:39:00 AM]:
Damn...my head's spinning and I really, really
need to get to bed, but dammit, this sounds too cool to pass up writing about. According to our inside source over at cool-ass Midtown record store Sig's Lagoon
(which is coming close to eclipsing my love of Cactus, I have to say), awesome poster artist Uncle Charlie
will be having a show this weekend (Saturday
, to be specific, June 21st
, from 6PM-midnight
) of his artwork.
If you don't know who the guy is, well, trust me -- you may not realize it, but you actually do. The guy practically created the whole bright-colors-and-kitschy-iconography style of poster art that's been the mainstay of show flyers everywhere, and he's like some kind of Godfather to the whole hot rod art scene, I think. After 18 years, the man's a bona fide legend. Oh, and he'll be selling his stuff at the show, too -- everything that's on display, apparently -- so take some of that "incentive" money The Man threw just at you like a scumbal john throwing dollar bills at a cheap-ass hooker and put it to good use buying some capital-and-lowercase-"A"/"a" art. (Hell, if you're feeling extra-special generous, you're welcome to splash out & get some for me, eh? No? Fuck off? Ah, well -- worth a shot...)
