Last Rites "Grand Reincarnation" This Weekend
A three-day dark arts extravaganza at Paul Booth's Last Rites Tattoo Theatre and Gallery will take place from Friday throughout Sunday including art exhibitions, comedy, music, live painting, and the unveiling of the studio's "grand reincarnation." Here's the line-up:
* Friday, July 22nd, the Gallery will host the opening reception of Craig Larotonda's "Eternal Consequences" and Chet Zar's "Faces of Death." An interview with Chet and a preview of his work (including the image below) can be found at Arrested Motion. Doors open 7pm until 11pm. No cover.
* Saturday, July 23rd, Paul drops the black curtains and unveils the all new Tattoo Theatre area. It promises to be an experience that would make even Beelzebub blush. MC'd by MINIcHRIST, the evening will be filled with performances by one of my favorite comedians, Jamie Kilstein of Citizen Radio, and by Attila Csihar, vocalist from Mayhem, presenting his solo dark ambient project VOID OV VOICES. And of course attendees will be able to take in the art exhibits a second night. Doors open 7pm until "real late." There is a $10 cover charge after 10pm. [18 and over]
* Sunday, July 24th, there will be live painting by Last Rites' family of artists including Shawn Barber, Kim Saigh, Chet Zar, Genevive Zacconi, Angie Mason, Fred Harper, Billy Norrby, Matt Rota, Martin Wittfooth, Paul Booth, The ArtFusion Experiment & more. Doors open at 3pm until 11pm. No cover.
Details can be found on the Facebook event page. Last Rites Tattoo Theatre and Gallery is located at 511 West 33rd Street, 3rd Floor, (btwn 10th and 11th ave).
We'll be there for at least one of these fabulous events. Hope to see ya!
