Thursday, June 20 – B-Side Artists 6th Annual Showcase
29 S. Orange Ave.
We’ve written plenty about the B-Side collective and its individual component artists in the past; they’re like a Justice League of Orlando street-art superheroes. (Actually, the JLA is kinda square – maybe they’re more like the Avengers.) Returning are established names including Chris Tobar, SKIP, Swamburger, Neo-Soe, Lucy Furs and many more; new to the team just in time for this annual event are Boy Kong, Wolfrich, Kittens of Industry and Crummy Gummy, exciting additions whose coveted work will only increase the jam-packedness of this year’s opening and sale (and believe us, these things get full) at CityArts Factory. In fact, they’ve added both a pre-sale event Wednesday afternoon (4-7 p.m.) and a post-show evening (6-10 p.m. Friday). If your plan is to buy, we suggest scoping out the good stuff Wednesday afternoon so you can swoop in with the credit card on Thursday; there may be bargains on Friday, but don’t count on a lot of stuff being left. We speak from bitter experience. – Jessica Bryce Young
