Check out this story about The Art of Elysium‘s Genesis show taking place TONIGHT!

Get your tickets here

From the The Hollywood Reporter: Most arts gala fundraisers for the arts feature star-studded guest lists and exorbitant ticket prices — along with a chance to be bored over cocktails by well-heeled patrons who willingly part with a small fortune to sit next to Sting or some other luminary. Well, on Sept. 5, The Art of Elysium is doing things a little differently this year at downtown L.A.’s Ace Theatre, where Shepard Fairey, Spike Jonze, Beck, Jakob Dylan, Moby and the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs’ Karen O” are curating a street art happening and concert in the newly refurbished Spanish Gothic 1927 movie palace.

PAY 2 PLAY HITS THE STREETS!

I have frequently talked about the many problems created by the current campaign finance structure.  Corporate donations distort their influence in politics and corrupt our democracy.  This is an issue not many Americans seem interested in, but it effects all Americans by insuring that corporate interests are put before the interests of the average person.  Genuine democracy should guarantee that politicians create the greatest good for the greatest number of people, but that idea has eroded with the favors owed by politicians to corporations in exchange for their contributions.

Please support my friend John Wellington Ennis’ film PAY 2 PLAY opening in select cities this month.

LIVE IN JOY VIDEO PREMIERE BY AHEE

I met sound/artist and DJ  Chris Adams at SXSW and really liked his music made from “found sound”. He recently sent me this super cool video and song that he made under his DJ name AHEE. The video, directed by Alexander Polinsky, has a great theme… the idea of love and inspiration shattering conformity. There is a subtle OBEY reference in the beginning which I was very flattered by. Check it out!
