Redefining Time Recap- Rick Osborne and HOUR BAND

Rainy weather greeted us as we drove into Corpus Christi for the REDEFINING TIME art show and concert. Luckily the rain let up a bit as we made our way into the House of Rock to meet up with Austin rockers HOUR BAND. Hour Band had a great set as they debuted for the first time live a full 5 piece ensemble as opposed to the 3-piece it had been in the past.
As Hour Band rocked the main stage, artist Rick Osborne was poised atop the second smaller stage creating a piece of art which was raffled off later in the evening. The active multimedia projections of time lapsed paintings was really interesting and kept viewers intrigued.
Great weekend in the 361 despite all the rain, and our heroic escape back to Austin from floods.

To view more of Rick's work- visit the PRODUCE gallery downtown on Peoples Street, who incidently have a sweet neighboring boutique where they carry art books, streetwear, and a great collection of KAWS vinyl toys.

Rick raffled this amazing piece away to some lucky guest. I love that it looks like the last supper is happening on the flight deck of the death star or something...pretty interesting, and awesome. The piece is 4ftx8ft .
Rick Osborne's use of color is pretty intriguing.

This Osborne piece which was being painted during the show was raffled off as well. The theme of "before the flood" was definitely stirring especially as the city was flooded two days later.

So a week or so ago, Muggzy Flowz held his CD release party at the 6th street boutique, SOLE FRESCO. Guests enjoyed tons of giveaways, barbecue, drinks, and some of Austin's finest hip hop acts.
We are happy to see and hear Muggzy's first solo debut project "The Boi Who could Fly". The day was hot as the Texas sun can get, but we still had a great time with true heads and friends.

Muggzy is one of those rare MC's that seems to always "go for the throat" when he grabs a microphone. Whether it be his freestyles or writtens, he always seems to have welll thought punchlines and wordplay. Check the video down below if you dont believe me--count the "quotables" , I dare you.

Here's some pics.

Table Manners Crew's DJ CROWN held down the beats and the turntables for the good part of the day--awesome!

Notes was kind enough to grace the mic, and dance into splits..good performance.

We had to resort to painting this door after a highway mishap with the original painting material.

Big Ups to everyone that made this event possible--Sole Fresco, Airica of Mofoz Visualz, BOYCOTT Magazine, Mamba and Kwest, Nick the bbq man, Muggzy's fam, Krishna ,JAysin Choppy Cheex and Shadow Paradigm and everyone that came through.

San Francisco Art, Shops, and Rock The Bells

So...a few weeks ago we traversed to San Francisco to visit some friends as well as check out the Rock the Bells hip hop festival. In between that we had a chance to check out a little bit of the city..more importantly though, a little more art in the city.
We also had a chance to check out the unique boutiques the bay city has to offer..although the cooler ones didn't allow pictures (we are talking about you lil taxidermy jewelry artist store).
Anyways-heres some pics enjoy.

We stopped by Giant Robot which is a boutique and magazine..as well as art gallery. We were lucky to catch the "HOT PINK FUZZ" Art by Snaggz, Miss Muju and Monyomonyo.

These Nauga Monsters by Miss Muju were awesome...the felt made pieces were very organic and whimsical. The detail in all the pieces were pretty intriguing, and the bright colors were very welcoming to the viewer.Awesome.

The hills of SF are pretty damn cool.

The felt cereal boxes by Snaggs were great- not only because our love for cereal but also because of the great detail along the boxes, the 3-dness of the art, as well as the fun nature of it.

I especially liked the Tooth Blast cereal whiche featured a see through box that showcased the "felt cereal".

Always check the nutrition facts

artwork by Miss Muju

Heres some good old fashioned communication

Mural work abound all over the streets of SF

Cool wheat pasted bike riders

This is where I draw the line

Panda stencils

I especially enjoyed this Gizmo Mogwai paste up

Cant remember which shop this was as we blasted through a lot of shops, but this sneaker collection were all autographed by celebrity customers.

Taking a small break at Golden Gate Park with the homie Jaysin of Binary Audio Misfits/The Word Association.

This sneaker monster was on the attack , so we left that spot quick.

Got hooked up with a Dr.Pepper from Susanne which we thought was not carried in the west coast ..turns out Waco was in the house. Thanks . 23 flavors cant be replicated by Pibb Xtra.





Big faced murals..sweet.

I loved this piece, took a shot from the car, didnt get a chance to chek it up close, but the style is amazing.

Copped a cap at TRUE which was a pretty cool sneaker boutique.

well.....then the next day we went to check out the ROCK THE BELLS hip hop festival...no pictures as they wouldnt let "professional" cameras in and we honestly didnt feel like taking pictures by then anyways. Highlights included Wu-Tang Clan killing it- the whole crew was there, and ODB's oldest son took on his pop's duties and did a fairly good job. I also enjoyed seeing a mascot-like dog during Snoop's set crip walking and overall being awesome. Brother Ali also did a great job as did Tribe called Quest who had Bustah Rhymes and Spliff Star join on stage for a surprise performance....good times.
