Hey Hey! *insert Krusty laugh* You lookin for a good time post-Art Crawl tonight? Swing by Club Absinthe for some retro boogie action. Our buds Born in the Eighties are throwin it down alongside the one and only Party Jebus. I’ll be setting up shop after Art Crawl dies down too, so pop in and hang with us!
The weather’s looking good for tomorrow night’s James Street North Art Crawl! Come see all the artists and makers along the street as we showcase the best in Hamilton’s creative scene! So many great events popping up, so there’s lots to see this month! I’ll have lots of cozy items for the cold months ahead, including my soft, warm Fazooli blankets, perfect for snuggling and binge watching your favourite shows, so don’t miss out! I will also be re-setting up @clubabsinthe later in the evening when the street dies down for AfterCrawl with @bornintheeighties_ so pop on by for a drink!
Club Absinthe and Fazooli proudly present, in association with Supercrawl: The Artists Market @ AfterCrawl! 15 hand-picked Artists, Vendors and Craftspeople from around Hamilton and the surrounding Greater Toronto Area will be showcasing their talent and whimsical wares during Supercrawl on Friday, September 9th + Saturday, September 11th at Club Absinthe from 6pm until the bar closes in the wee hours alongside a stellar lineup of entertainment for your dancin party pleasure. FRIDAY’S MUSICAL LINEUP includes the notoriously awesome @bornintheeighties_ playing live – you’ll hear ALL YOUR FAVOURITE 80’s & 90’s COVERS and then some. Plus, we’ve also got the infamous DJ PARTY JESUS @jeffyboy spinning, well, pretty much whatever he feels like – which is always totally rad. SATURDAY’S LINEUP includes some cool DJs still to be announced, so STAY TUNED – we’ve got great things comin atcha!
These AfterCrawl parties are ALWAYS a blast – although they happen after every Art Crawl (the 2nd Friday of every month), you won’t want to miss out on all the crazy wicked goodies in store for this big annual one, so lace up those kicks and come join us – Let’s Party, Champions!
Your Dad’s a Boss. Hit ‘im right in the feels with a Father’s Day card straight from the heart. Greeting cards are now available for $4 in my Etsy Shop, in person at the James North Art Crawl this Friday, the AfterCrawl party at Club Absinthe that follows, Sidewalk Sounds on Concession Street on June 17th, or the Big Top For Pops Father’s Day Celebration of the Punk Rock Flea Market on June 19th! $1 from every greeting card is always donated to a local charity. Cheers to the Dads!
As usual, I’ll be parking my booth in front of Compilation for the Art Crawl portion of the evening on Friday night, but I’m also super busy in the studio this week trying to wrassle up some new art pieces for the show that follows afterwards at Baltimore House. They’re throwing this wicked throwback rave for their AfterCrawl party that’ll follow the James North Art Crawl. Live art is also gonna be involved, so come check it out and get down to some amazing retro rave sounds and fab drink specials. Don’t sleep!! Come support local art!
This August is shaping up to be a busy one! No rest for the wicked. Check out my booth at these awesome events and stay tuned for updates, as I’ll likely be adding to the list while the weather holds out for us. All of my prints are half price all summer long and I have tons of new mercy to check out so come out and support a local thriving artist. Cheers!
I had such a blast working on live art alongside some truly talented artists at the January Art Crawl at Club Absinthe for Anthony Hayley’s A Very Merry Unbirthday party last night. Lauren Olson of Temper Temper, Petra, Dan Rivero of Abstract Visions, Olga Pankova, Juliana LaChance, Nick Dub, Jennifer Henderson and of course Anthony Hayley all created some really awesome twisted Alice paintings. It’d be cool to get together and do it again sometime!
Here’s a few shots from my corner if you missed it… and yes, the original is now up for sale and prints are coming soon!
