Tuesday: Screening, Blue Moon, Tea Bazaar

May 26th, 2009 · 1 Comment · By

A few good things happening tonight:

First off, a screening at the new art space Try & Make (on Preston across from the Shell Station) of a film called How To Draw a Bunny. I’ll borrow directly from T&M curator Jaymee Martin:

A documentary about eccentric and totally alone now-dead artist Ray Johnson .  Some call him “the most famous unknown artist.”  He navigated his relationship to the rest of the (art) world in a really unique, clever, and challenging way.  Free for members / $4 suggested donation for non-members (includes popcorn and mail art materials).

Meanwhile, over at Blue Moon Diner, they’ve got Carlton James in his regular Tuesday night slot with The Samsonites (who I don’t know) and Mister Baby (who Sarah has some good things to say about if you look directly below). Presumably this is at 8PM and suggested donation.

Lastly, over at the Tea House, starting at 10PM (yes, like actually starting at 10, for real), Astronomers, who are I think one of Charlottesville’s tighter, more cohesive sounding bands, will be joined by mathy touring Texans Megafauna. Should be a solid evening of rock and roll. $5 cover.

    Ray Johnson is fascinating; I’ve heard the “How to Draw a Bunny” doc is really worthwhile as well.
