Seattle Spring Slideluck @ Annex Gallery
Hey everyone, the Seattle Spring Slideluck is finally here! We have a
great slideshow lined up for you. The evening's theme is Laughter and
FRIDAY, MARCH 30 at Annex Gallery.
Annex Gallery is located at 517 Aloha ST, lower Queen Anne, a few
blocks north of EMP. Owner Ric Peterson has graciously donated the
space for the evening. There is plenty of room for all so invite your
Parking may prove challenging. There is limited street parking in
Queen Anne on a Friday night, so carpool, take the bus (the 1, 2, 3,
8, 74 should all get you relatively close) or park at Seattle Center.
Don't forget about the potluck part! Bring something tasty to eat and
a bottle of wine to share.
I look forward to seeing all your faces,
If you haven’t seen the article in the Arts section of Tuesday’s New York Times:
Chicks On Speed in Bangkok
Party Volcano's Chief Discipline Officer (retired), checks in from Bangkok, Thailand:
Hello, PV readers. If you happen to be in Bangkok this Friday, I have the event for you. Alex Murray-Leslie from Chicks on Speed will be spinning at the new Club Culture.
Chicks on Speed? Who are they? I really have no idea. Apparently a Berlin based electronica group.
But Dudesweet is co-sponsoring the event and that's recommendation enough. Dudesweet is a bunch of Thai guys who have become semi-famous for throwing great underground parties in Bangkok. You're not likely to see many farung (foreigners) at Dudesweet events, just lots of hip Thais partying down.
Recommending this to PV readers makes me think about the time years ago when I hung out with PV's CEO Bernd in Bangkok. One evening Bernd joined me on a first meeting with a lovely girl I met through Match.com. (In Thai culture it's perfectly acceptable to have a first "date" involve other friends.) Sade was her name and she was a producer for a couple of popular Thai television shows. She was lovely, charming, smart, and possessed a wicked sense of humor. I was so into her, except for one thing: she was a man.
Katoey, or lady boys, are transvestites / transsexuals (ranging from pre to post-op) and are very accepted in Thai culture. In fact, it's so accepted it's really a non-issue. You might walk into a pharmacy and the clerk behind the counter is a katoey or the lovely waitress at the restaurant or the teller at the bank or, in Sade's case, the producer of a hit television show. No one even blinks an eye. And in that sense Sade wasn't "lying" to me about her situation--she was really living as a woman. Very charming. I never "hooked-up" with Sade, but in the gracious manner so typical of Thais, intial possible interest gently morphed into a lovely friendship.

Intimate Human @ Hedreen Gallery
I've been criticized for not giving photography due credit. Once, someone started a rumor that I said photography was not even an art form. Of course I sued them and won. But in the age of digital cameras and istockphoto.com, there certainly are a lot of photographers out there and the ability to shine in the blitz of flashes becomes harder and harder. A beautiful photograph will always capture my attention for a moment, but the act of expression, the power of an honest lens- somehow manages to live in a world above airbrushed fashion spreads and exotic landscapes. I am smitten by the world of concepts and ideas. And when a photographer can turn a still image into a voice box, turn a series into an orchestra, it knocks me down.
There is a show opening tomorrow night (Thursday) that I am compelled to tell you about.
Two photographers, Mel Erice and Jon Huck, present their exploration of portraiture in a way that is so simple, so compelling, that each work becomes a mirror, a reflection, a conversation, a question. It makes you smile while waving your finger in the air, head cocked sideways, looking for an answer.
You should see it. Simple as that.
EXHIBIT: Intimate Human
ARTIST: Mel Erice & Jon Huck
OPENING: Thursday March 29th 5-8pm
RUN OF SHOW: March 29 – May 24, 2007
GALLERY HOURS: Tuesday – Saturday 1:30-6:00pm
ADMISSION: open to the public, always free

Rat City Rollergirls
Keep on bouting in the free world
It seems like just yesterday that the Rat City Rollergirls were turning the Everett Events Center upside down with their fast pace, fierce hitting, amazing comebacks and sister-versus-sister deathmatches. But that wasn't yesterday, that was last month! And a new month means a new Rat City Rollergirl Women's Flat Track Rollerderby THROW DOWN!
We'll be back at our beloved Hangar 27 for Season 3, Bout 2 on Saturday, March 31, where RCRG fans will behold the first of our out-of-town visitors this season -- an all-star team from New Mexico's Duke City Derby. Duke City's "Muñecas Muertas" will roll against the Sockit Wenches. And, in a battle hotter than Hell and more intimidating than Jupiter's angry red eye, fiery Grave Danger will take on the intergalactic Throttle Rockets. (Derby Liberation Front, meanwhile, will be enjoying a revolutionary bye this month -- now's your chance to actually see them holding still. Buy them a drink, shake their hands, snap a photo!)
RCRG is proud to donate a portion of the proceeds from this bout to Domestic Abuse Women's Network (DAWN), which has provided culturally competent supportive services to victims of domestic violence since 1980. To learn more about DAWN, go to www.dawnonline.org.

The Hideout Turns Two
I walked into the Hideout tonight just to have an afterwork drink. A quick one. I had lots to do. Lucia was having her 40th birthday party against the settee. She had a Calvados Cocktail, served up. It looked great. Wier Harman was to my left. An art history professor held court in the corner with fifteen or so of his students, talking shop, settled into the couches, drinks in hand. A girl read a book in the corner.
The room was dark. I sat down. Ordered a beer. Unlocked the submission box for the Vital 5 Review and flattened out the thirty or so pages of drawings and short stories. The top drawing is a great pen and ink by Rick Klu. The illustration shows a coin-operated electric chair. I settle into a beer and flip through the confessions, the late night thoughts. One page has the words- Someday someone may ask me... "Do you remember when it was now?"
The front door opens, an extremely large, bright orange unbrella, pokes its head in, slowly opens and spins clockwise. A man in an orange jumpsuit walks in. His face is painted orange, his hair is orange. He has orange feathers in his hair. His smile is wide. Ben Beres. No special occasion, really. A cute girl in black and white strips walks in behind him. It's costume, I think. She doesn't speak- is she a mime? No. Her smile is wide. It is happy hour.
An old friend walks in. Iggy Pop is on the jukebox. I order another beer. A man in a powder blue tuxedo walks in. Another couple. I don't know them. Jeff Scott, my business partner, walks in wearing the official Hideout soccer jersey. Game starts in a half hour. Who would have thought we'd have a soccer team?
Deborah, my girlfriend, sits in the corner. Celebrating with the birthday girl. Drinking Lillet Blanc. She's a slow sipper. It will take her an hour to finish it. She just finished the new hideout website (www.hideoutseattle.com) and this one is on the house. This one and the next 300. Barter.
Our neighborhood old-timer Don walks in. Goodyear hat, leather jacket, sarcastic, honest, thrifty tipper. He's consistent. I hear a conversation about the landscape design at the Olympic Sculpture Park. I did not know that the plant life was organized by the rise in geography to reflect the vegetation between the ocean and the Olympic mountains. The girl reading her book leaves. Another couple walks in. Someone orders Thai food from next door. Joe and Sasha sit down at the bar. The fresh flowers are holding out.
I ask the bartender, Justin, for a spiral bound book containing the art and music at the Hideout. I grab a ball point pen and mark sold next to Scott Foldesi, next to Chris Vena. A vertical bar of light sneaks past the velvet curtain, red lights swirling. No disco party. The sirens of First Hill. Sympathy for The Devil plays over the speakers. I stand up, pat a few shoulders on my way out. I've been here for years, decades, minutes, for the very first time.
On March 24th, the Hideout turns two.
March 25th through the 30th we will cleans our livers, exercise, eat right, and scavenge a nice party outfit. We will breath deeply.
On Saturday March 31st, we will throw our anniversary party.
Please join up as we celebrate two very strange and exciting years on First Hill.
Oh. And look at the website, it really is quite nice.
Any questions or comments?
We'd love to hear from you.
7 Year Itch Utilikilts Party
The rumors you've been hearing are true: Utilikilts will be throwing a
7 Year Itch Party on March 31, 2007.Not only will this party be to
celebrate each and every person who supported us in our first 7 years,
but it will also help to usher us into a new era. It will serve as the
official grand opening of our Pioneer Square Flagship Store, our
adventures into wholesale, and our dedication to taking our company to
the next level while still embracing our original ethos and staying
true to our values.
First and foremost, you are invited to attend!Please, bring
yourselves, your families, and your friends, and join us for food and
drinks (adult and otherwise), live bands, DJs, burlesque dancers, fire
performers, NANDA the amazing acrobaticalists, the Fellini-esque chaos
of the MarchFourth Marching Band, circus performers, Freaks, Geeks, a
stripper clown who also does balloon animals (for real!), and all the
magical mayhem that we can cook up.This is the Big One, the Real
Deal, the Party to Put All Parties to Shame, and it won't be the same
if you're not there.This is a fantastic opportunity for you to
involve your friends and family in that which you spend much of your
time, and we want to see them there to give you the credit you deserve
in making our company an absolutely amazing place to be. The company
also wants to take this opportunity to give back to you and yours by
involving you all in a night of mischievous nearly-criminal
rambunctious roaring good times...this is our gift to you, and anyone
you'd like to share it with.
The party will be held in both our current buildings, as well as
(hopefully) the Pioneer Square Triangle, from 8p until 1a (or later!)
on Saturday March 31.
This is the biggest thing to happen to us in a long time,fora long
time, and you will be very missed if you are unable to attend.Please
RSVP and me know whether or not you will be able to make it.(oh, and
start think of anyone you'd personally like to invite:as soon as we
have the invite created, we'll be passing it on to you to pass out, so
start a list!)
Not only do we want you to attend, but we want to know if you have any
brilliant ideas for performers, artists, or other folks who might want
to contribute to this Raucous Pirate Circus we've begun...do you know
any cool burlesque fire dancers?Stilt walkers who juggle sharp
objects?Painters who want to do a series of abstract kilt art to be
displayed at our party?Let me know, give me names!If you have
personal contacts with anyone in the dark subversive arts community,
please, hook us up.We've got a pretty substantial list running, but
we want this place to be FILLED with performers, presentations, and
projects. Please drop any names and contact info into an email and send
it to me, the sooner the better, of course!
Finally, there's a googolplex of logistics that will go into this
party:from security to safety, tables to trapezes, invites to
insights, lights to locks, setup, cleanup, and everything in
between.If you would like to be a part of the organization to make
this party the best thing that's happened to us yet, send an email to
contact me immediately, and list any specific areas you'd like to be
involved with, as well as what kind of time you can commit to.We're
aware that we need as many people as possible to help make this party a
smashing success, and we'd love to have all of you involved.
We look forward to hearing from you all, and if you have any questions,
please don't hesitate to ask.

GMP #29 - Science-Fiction Double-Feature!
This Saturday, March 31st is the next Guerrilla Masquerade Party - Science-Fiction Double-Feature! So we hope you haven't run out of aluminum foil yet for that Robot costume...
And where, you ask, will our menagerie of mutants and monsters, aliens and astronauts be invading? As promised, we've selected two locations in fitting with the 'Double-Feature' theme. And we tried to make them as different from one another as possible - like a B-Movie followed by a Feature.
At 9pm, we'll descend on the corner of 15th Ave and NW Market Street in Historic Ballard, invading our 'B-Movie' - the bar at Denny's. Yes, Denny's. No, seriously, Denny's. It's suprisingly big, freakishly well lit, and a great place for us to meet up, have a drink or two, check out each other's costumes, and get ready for phase 2.
At 11pm, we'll move, en masse, to our second location. Just a few blocks up Market Street and around the corner on Ballard Avenue, the entire horde of us will enter our 'Feature' - the BalMar - a classy joint with pool tables, two floors, & leather seating.
(BalMar will be our final destination for the evening, unless anyone has a hankering for Moons over My Hammy and wants to return to Denny's.)
The Ballard Denny's is located at 5501 15th Ave NW, at NW Market St
BalMar is located at 5449 Ballard Ave NW, just off NW Market St
Although we wouldn't dare tell you creative kooks what to drink, might we suggest something with Blue Curacao or Midori to make our drinks a little 'otherworldly' , too? Maybe a Blue Hawaiian or a Midori Sour? Maybe bring some dry ice to make them bubble and smoke? (Safely, of course)
We also wanted to let you know that Saturday happens to be the first day of the Emerald City Comicon, and at 6pm they're holding a Costume Contest that includes the category Best Star Wars Costume. We thought some of you might be interested - though we hope you don't wear yourselves out at the Con! http://www.emeraldcitycomicon.com/costume.php
See you Saturday night! Until then, I'll leave you with this quote from The Borg that seems appropriate for GMP (if you replace the words 'the Borg' with 'GMP', 'shields' with 'inhibitions' , and 'ships' with 'drinks'):
"We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile. "

Framing the View: Rebecca Solnit
Rebecca Solnit has long been interested in questions of speed and slowness. Her 2000 book Wanderlust: A History of Walking considered the world at three miles an hour; her award-winning 2003 River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West looked at the acceleration of everyday life and the role of railroads, photographs, and other Victorian technologies in transforming both perception and the surface of the earth; and her 2004 Hope in the Dark: Untold Histories, Wild Possibilities examined a number of important changes—in environmental consciousness, in women’s status, in race politics—over the past half century that have been overlooked by those who fail to see and think in decades rather than weeks.
Also interested in the vexing question of how long it takes to see a work of visual art, Solnit will present a new talk that explores a number of aspects of speed and slowness in politics and consciousness today.

The French Project (TFP) presents a one-night musical cabaret extravaganza of songs in the language of love at Re-bar - Sunday - Monday, April 1 - 2, 2007 at 8pm. TFP plays music ranging from the sleazy charm of Serge Gainsbourg and Johnny Hallyday to the off-beat nostalgia of Joe Jackson and Dolly Parton -- all rendered 'completement en français' (in French). TFP features musicians Erin Jorgensen (marimba, accordion, vocals), Charles Smith (autoharp, hammered dulcimer, vocals), Sara Edwards (vocals, guitar), Basil Harris (emcee, bass, vocals), and special guest Kirk Anderson (drums, vocals, former French major).
TFP was formed in 2005 by Seattle-based punk-rock marimbist Erin Jorgensen, who opened for Built to Spill's West Coast Tour last summer. She will also be performing new marimba work at OtB's NWNW Festival this June.
Jorgensen, Edwards and Smith are not French, and met at On the Boards (Seattle) where they work. Harris and Anderson are locally famous for their diverse talents in "Awesome" the band.
What: An evening of cabaret and music by The French Project (Erin Jorgensen, Charles Smith, Sara Edwards, Basil Harris and special guest Kirk Anderson)

Tussle in Shorthand @ Punch Gallery
Tussle in Shorthand
Curated by Yoko Ott
Thursday, April 5, 2007, 5-8 pm
April 5 - 29
The exhibition Tussle in Shorthand presents a selection of projected and single-channel DVD works by artists who employ mechanisms that assist them in interpreting or coping with their physical or psychological environments. Through extreme bodily gestures, nasty mind games, humor, and fantasy, the works present a truncated language for struggle, a makeshift manner for managing, and a system of communication articulated with visual fluency.
This exhibition, curated by Yoko Ott, features artists, Meiro Koizumi, Shawn Patrick Landis, Raul Ortega Ayala, and Hugh Walton.
