Friday, Sept. 30 – Tiny-Waves.com Launch Party
Trippy psych-pop, flickery art films and the de rigueur photo booth (what, no food truck?)
homegrown weirdness abounds at tonight’s party to christen online art collective Tiny-Waves.com, which hopes to “create an avenue for greater exposure and contextual understanding by highlighting artists who have a similar vision, but express it in their own unique way.” Pushing that boat out into the water are Maximino, Southern Nights, Hear Hums and Jane Jane Pollock – the cream of the crop when it comes to Floridian experimentalism. Reviewing a Hear Hums show in March, OW’s scene chronicler Bao Le-Huu wrote, “Artists creating on the highest level are the ones who can operate on their own unique terms but make a statement big enough to resonate on a plane that’s intuitive and primordial.
You’ll never launch a revolution until your shit can move people outside your little buddy clique.” Amen. – Jessica Bryce Young (with Maximino, Southern Nights, Hear Hums, Jane Jane Pollock, DJ set by Levek, films by Ralph Giunta; 8 p.m. at Will’s Pub, 1040 N. Mills Ave.; $5; 407-898-5070; willspub.org)
