Aziree, our PR intern and bartender for the night.
If you didn’t get a chance to make it out last night, make sure you stop by and see the show before the 26th, you don’t want to miss it!
And…the weather is amazing today! Fall is in the air and I’ve been waiting for fall since..well, last fall! Can’t wait until the leaves start a’changin…
Speaking of changes, we’ve got a new section in the store!
It’s the “New at Young Blood” table, right in front. It’s your go to spot for our latest additions so don’t forget to take a look!
Supa-cool cards and prints by Dr. Kennedy Jones
Adorable wallets and buttons by PollyDanger
And, fall means Halloween, (the best holiday in my book) and these insanely cute plushies by Lowell and Son make me smile every time I pass them. The bat/cat has little purple wings on the back!
Again I’ll say, don’t forget to stop by the show-It’s gorgeous.
Enjoy this weather!
I’m sure you all know about Sanithna Phansavanh‘s opening and Modern Skirts’ performance at YB tomorrow night, but here’s a little reminder. Also going on tomorrow night is Mike Germon and Truett Dietz‘s opening at Beep Beep gallery, which goes from 8-11p.m. Stop by and check it out as well (after visiting us, of course!). I haven’t gotten to see the show yet, and will be just as surprised as you all are when I come in tomorrow, but I’ve checkout Sanithna’s work online, and it’s freakin’ fantastic. Totally dig the superstition/mythology focus as it is, so I’m especially pumped for tomorrow night’s show.
This Saturday don’t forget it’s So Fine Equine. A silent auction held at YB to benefit
HRRRF ( a local horse rescue)
Then the following weekend Sanithna Phansavanh‘s
opening “Knock on Wood”. Check out his new video on his blog of his progress. And look out for news of the scavenger hunt of his art the day before the opening. Stay tuned…
In Sanithna’s own words, from his blog, The Prince and the Thief:
“Knock on Wood” explores superstitions, charms, and talismans. Drawings and paintings, inspired by beliefs from around the world, catalogue various actions, thoughts, and objects that attempt to relieve fear and uncertainty.
My brothers-in-arms, Modern Skirts, will be giving a very special and free performance. Trust me, they are homegrown, bona fide rockstars. Ask them about opening for R.E.M.
The soundtrack for the gallery viewing will be provided by my friend Alex Goose. Some of you folks may know him better as the guy who created The Blueprint 3 Outtakes, music that Jay-Z (unbelieveably) did not use on his last album.
A special project with my long-time buddy Tim Haught and his StreetLocal folks, one of Atlanta’s highly respected brands, will be released that night. I dare you to find something new and grand that they don’t already know about.
Also, keep your eyes peeled for some goodness from my-sister-from-a-different-mister, Dehanza Rogers, aka her celluloid self. When she’s not being Documentary Filmmaker Champ, you can find her in UCLA’s über-elite MFA Film Program.
Love and black cats ’til next Wed,
