Alphabet soup graffiti exhibit closing reception

aug 3rd, 7 - 10 pm,
Fish with Braids


Alphabet Soup, 7-22 - 8-5 2010 is a group exhibition featuring graffiti artists past and present paying tribute to Rammellzee (www.gothicfuturism.com), a pioneer of the culture who recently passed away. Rammellzee's thought process was one of the many held accountable for taking the thought processes involved in graffiti lettering, and pushing them to new limits through deconstruction and reconstruction of the Roman alphabet...,... beyond the "formal" styles we are familiar with seeing on a day to day basis.

closing reception tuesday aug 3rd

This show will feature the art of:
ACET
WANE COD
ERA
CRIZ 156

Sirena "OCEAN'S APHRODITE" Ep release party

My EP is finally done and now it's time to pop some bubbly and celebrate in style!

This CD is very special to me... I produced all of the music, wrote the lyrics, did the vocals, designed the album cover and now I release it independently... to say I am excited about this is an understatement!

...Join me as I officially release my first EP "Ocean's Aphrodite" here in Jersey City, the town that has seen me grow and has helped as inspiration for my first CD.

I will make time to discuss and sign copies of the CD after my performance.

This is a dress to impress affaire... who are you impressing?... ME!
I want everyone to embody their "INNER DIVA"!
Don't miss the champagne toast at 10PM sharp!
