Things to Do

Get Buff

The installations and posters created by a Los Angeles street artist known as Buff Monster may be all pink and cartoony, but it's probably not wise to bring the kiddies to the "Super Happy Pink" show opening at Andenken Gallery tomorrow night, March 30.

Andenken owner Hyland Mather says that he's been excited about the Buff Monster showcase for months, and not just because it will include something called the "Porno Shack" and massively drawn boobies. It's because Buff Monster has been spreading his unique style of graffiti-inspired art across the urban landscape of cities like Tokyo, New York and San Francisco for years, and will no doubt drop some pieces in the Mile High City as well.

But just in case you aren't fortunate to spot a Buff Monster guerilla work outside, hit up Andenken from 6 — 10 p.m. at 2110 Market Street to check out his prints and paintings — and stay for some table tennis and beer.
