I’m usually not one to blog about other people’s events, but I truly believe that my friend Anna and Johalla Projects are up to good things here.
‘POCKET CHANGE’ is a collaboration art/music series with The Empty Bottle. The event is being held to raise money to fund public arts projects throughout Chicago.
This Thursday, Feb 20, 2014, at 9 P.M. ‘POCKET CHANGE’ will feature the work of Ryan Duggan entitled ‘LAST CALL O-MATIC.’ Ryan will install a modified vending machine that will dispense “last call” pick up lines and fake phone numbers.
Additionally, the event will feature a DJ set by Heather Gabel. Heather is a fantastic artist in her own right, probably best known for her work with the band Alkaline Trio.
Admission is $5 and includes a complimentary Pabst Blue Ribbon.
The last of these events was in October and featured the work of Heather Gabel and Matt Skiba at which I shot this image as part of my Impossible Year project:
So come on down and enjoy great art, listen to great music, and help make Chicago more interesting. All while enjoying everyone’s favorite low-brow brew. What’s not to like?
I’ll be there for sure. Hope to see you there!
