Friday. Lowbrow Society for the Arts presents: MASHUP!

The Lowbrow Society for the Arts presents:


A super-fun multimedia art-party celebrating everything remixed, remade, repurposed, collaborated, and collaged.

Come early for the genre-bending art show, featuring works by: DAZE — a graffiti legend famous for painting subways in the cult film "Wildstyle",  Sinead McCarthy — a porn blogger and naughty photographer, Nate "Igor" Smith — the guy who captures your drunken moments on DrivenByBoredom.com, Gwynn Galitzer —  who uses My Little Pony as social commentary, Lenora Jayne, Evan Rosen, Carey Baldwin, Najva Sol, Anoush Dekhordi, Helen Buyniski, and Ari Goldstein. Be prepared for neon-glitter apocalypses, subverted woodblock prints, handcrafted curiousities, and Photoshop wizardry.

In typical Lowbrow Society fashion, we believe that all good art is a reason to party. Rock out to live music by Rosetta Stoned - an indie hip-hop outfit that recently opened for Peaches, Spiral Beach- "electro art fusion pop/trash/dance punk",  and Cloud — a J-dilla-esque MPC beatmaker.

Late night Mashup/Electro/Remix/Dirty Dub DJing by: DJ Tommy D, Action Alex, and 12 Inch Endowment. Be prepared for tag-team turntablism and dancing your pants off.

SUPER CHEAP DRINKS. Performance by Inbred Hybrid Collective. Interactive exquisite corpse drawings. Short film by Irina Sarnetskaya. Face/body painting. Puppetry performance. Superhero armor fashion show by Dr. Adventure. 8-bit music.

Feel free to come dressed in your most remixed and ridiculous finery.
Strip naked all the expectations around "art" and get dirty with the unconventional.
