Let’s get the bad news out of the way: Following the Starfucker
show on Jan. 11—which bordered on a scaled-down Altamont with VFW
members acting as Hells Angels-esque security—local arts collective Meow Wolf
put an end to its shows at the VFW. Sounds like a drag, but as it turns
out, it was a blessing in disguise for the artsy weirdos.
Ah, Valentine’s Day—that wonderful holiday when your girlfriend seems to forget all the awesome stuff you do for her the rest of the year; your boyfriend frantically struggles to stretch one paycheck into jewelry, exorbitantly priced flowers and that tired yet traditional heart-shaped box of chocolates; and your pals at Hallmark get into some serious high-fiving.
While driving to the SFR offices the other day, I click-wheeled my iPod
to shuffle. Usually I listen to music I make (because I’m stuck up like
that), but shuffle took me on a journey of song genres that aren’t
around so much anymore.
