If you’re in Nyc this weekend you should definitely check out what promises to be a dope ass art/music pop-up show curated by No Agenda, Ad Hoc Art, and McCaig-Welles at The Highline Loft, 508 W. 26th Street. Some of my favs will be showing such as Dalek, Maya Hayuk, Cycle, John Breiner, Cern, Mike Giant, Indie 184, Dave Kinsey, Greg Lamarche (aka Sp One), Swoon, Thundercut, Morning Breath, and a grip more of talented mofo’s. There’ll also be a performance by “revolutionary sound/music/noise group,” Gray.
You can check out some more of the artwork at McCaig-Welles tumblr.

If you’re ever looking for limited edition prints of low brow, no brow, street, graffiti, progressive, juxtapoz-ish art from up and coming and established artists, 1xRun is a pretty good spot to keep an eye on. They’re based out of Detroit (Inner State Gallery [formally 323East]) and got their head firmly in the game.
Slate has a great post today about the Boston PD trying to infiltrate the DIY punk scene. The lame attempts to fit in are funny, if not pathetic, but is this really where the police force should focus their efforts?
This is a great concept executed by James Chapman and essential for any fan of music to come out of the UK, which is quite a bit. It always amuses me the amount of times people (myself included) get caught off guard and are like “Wait! They’re from there and not from the good ol’ U.S. of A?! Enjoy.
