Creature Comforts Art Show & ArtStorm Rule! Please, Stop the Hurting! [7/07/2008 02:57:00 PM]:
Okay, so it seems I inferred incorrectly from a very-very-very brief conversation w/Jacob Calle that he was also doing some kind of organizing for the Creature Comforts Art Show
this coming July 12th
, and I'm currently feeling like a big ol' idiot. Per more informed sources than me, Jacob's not
running the show, but just happens to have some artwork in it...whoops. Just to be clear, I'd like to say that this was totally me
drawing incorrect conclusions from a half-garbled conversation in a club, and Jacob in no
way tried to claim credit for the show, so please-please-please don't bug him about it. This was me being a dumbass, without any help from anybody else -- mea culpa
So, big apologies to the people who are actually behind the Creature Comforts show, the ArtStorm crew, who will hopefully not sneak up on me at some random point in the future and deliver a crushing kidney punch or something to my out-of-shape ass (you know how artists can be, yo). I didn't mean to misinform, and I am a fool -- kids, this is what happens when you frantically speed-blog a bunch of crap up on a site so you can go help your father-in-law lay down vinyl flooring...gah. (Every time I think nobody actually reads this damn thing but me, I swear, it bites me on the ass...)
Here's the actual info, just to clarify things -- the Creature Comforts show's a cool showcase of art & music that features a bunch of excellent H-town artists and music types, as well as Torontoan (Torontoite?) Michael Deforge. Local artists include Eli Sebastian Brumbaugh (who I think is the show's primary organizer, as well), Lisa Marie Godfrey, Rene Cruz, Shane Hillman, and yes, Jacob Calle, and there'll be bands on hand at the opening reception on the 12th (which runs from 7-10PM), like the ever-excellent Young Mammals, Wicked Poseur, News on the March, & L.A. band Hard Place. It'll be over at the recently-opened Caroline Collective at 4828 Caroline (where ArtStorm currently lives), and it sounds like be a good time. If you can't make it, though, the art (although not the music) will be on display 'til August 9th (check the ArtStorm site for hours).
