~JASON GRUNWALD CLOSING PARTY – TO-NITE !!
JASON GRUNWALD & EASTERN DISTRICT – are throwing a big closing bash for his dyno-mite show – to-nite – THURS APRIL 29 – from 7-11 PM – !! featuring a s-l-i-c-k . . . “sick lineup of bands including the Brooklyn noise duo Sisters, underground Iranian rockers The Yellow Dogs, and the electro-garage rock band Electric People !!!”
FREE SHOW + FREE DRINKS
the actual show – JASON GRUNWALD: ‘Was It All A Dream’ actually runs thru this SUN MAY 2, 2010.
the show is a multi-medium mini-retrospective for this artist – who is mostly known for his illustrative music world posters, for bands such as the COACH WHIPS, SONIC YOUTH & DEVENDRA BANHART. There are large oil paintings on canvas – esp one that seems to be a complicated and detailed rendition of his studio at home – full of the art – now seen on the walls, here !! also included are some charcoal and pencil drawings and studies as well as some free-standing sculptural assemblages. personally I like his 2-D stuff, best. both the paintings and drawings, as well as the more formal band posters.
you can see a nice, brief range of his artwork here – on his website.

‘Was it all just a dream’ – EASTERN DISTRICT / BROOKLYN / APRIL 16 – MAY 2, 2010
there was a huge array of (diverse) work in the relatively small space – it almost had an ‘outsider’ feel.
a poster for DEVENDRA BANHART & his sidekicks – HAIRY FAIRY.
it was like a collage, but of real art, not as in: found images – and had a nice rough-style, ‘let’s rumble’ edge.
the calligraphy was cool, too.
“in the future no one will be famous”.
LOL for sure. POSTER BOY kept his niche on the wall !!
and, what about BROOKLYN POSTER BOY – will he be – famous ?
got great great super great pix of that immediately previous show – but artlovers had just admin PHP busted – aka blown apart – so when the site gets back to 100% – will be sure to post them . . . pronto.
including lyrical assemblage tag work by NohJColey, photos of green shaped trees by LUCAS McGOWEN, that I totally loved, some terrific large scale photo wall murals by JIM KIERNAN, a big painting by JUAN DOE and this small green mo-hawked portrait – painted right on the wall by a certain BROOKLYN POSTER BOY – who it seems, can also – paint !! as well as he can cut, tear & re-arrange !! with new message, and usually pretty scary, too. dude.
JASON GRUNWALD – no looking back !!
