One: A Night of Art and Music

My friend Dorian Logan wrote to me about One: A Night of Art and Music,

which takes place at the Gladstone Hotel on Thursday, June 16th. Here’s

what he said:

A dear friend of mine is putting

together a party. The party will have visual art, music and


I have invited you because in my mind you would ‘dig’ this sorta thing.

It’s going to be an energetic night. Here’s the scoop…

Visual art:  tattoo artists, paintings, collage work, and some

furniture designs by our friend Jerry Rabba.

And the music…damn!!!

It’s common knowledge that I love my friend Chad Paulsons’ Afro-beat

Orchestra, Ultra Magnus, but Joe Butler (organizer of this event)


turned me on to another guy performing that night. His name is Joel

Parisien, and the dude has soul! Kinda like Sublime meets Stevie

Wonder…it’s very cool!

The other bands are Fireside Band (whom I must admit I know little

about, though Joe said wonderful things) and Sugarkill, who I saw

perform once only, at the Bovine about a year ago. I thought, I

honestly thought:

“in 5 years, I’ll be bragging to someone that I was at this show.” They

have a rawness to them that is so

crunchy, but

the music just makes ya boogie. I love it.

So, having said all that, please come out to a fun gig, bring positive

energy, and tell some friends!

Once again,

the event is:
