While the Suburban Home Records 15th Anniversary Weekend actually gets underway tonight, when Mike Howard and the local label's Virgil Dickerson spin Suburban Home tunes at Sputnik beginning at 10 p.m., the whole thing really gets rocking across the street at 3 Kings tomorrow. Along with the ongoing loud and live music upstairs on Friday and Saturday, the annual art show will hold court downstairs.
Exhibit co-organizer Charly "the city mouse" Fasano (who, with his artist brother Vincent Cheap Fasano, produces events as Dumb Guy's Brother) says the annual exhibit showcases another facet of the Suburban Home family: "We got together a community of friends and artists who are fans of the label for the show, because we wanted to show that there's another side to the music," he says. "We've all worked together, but some of us have never met in person before, and this is our big chance, once a year, to hang out." The art show includes a short-film screening on Friday and a Yellow Rake Zine new issue release party on Saturday; following is a quick sneak peek at some of the art you'll see.
