Alex Morrison graces the pages of our recent issue shown in the 'Our Glass' fashion editorial shot inside local artist's studios.
Tonight he's giving a talk at Artspeak for the opening of his show, about which the interweb tells me "His project for Artspeak, Making Beer More Expensive, comments on the renewal of Carrall Street and Vancouver’s “heritage district” of Gastown within a cyclical history".
233 Carrall Street, artist's talk at 7, opening at 8. see you there.

"After finding some very old tapes in my house I put together this little edit of some footage I filmed, mostly on borrowed cameras. You'll noticed some old faces in here when Ted DeGros used to ride for Monkey and Chris Haslam before he could grow hair, many different skaters in here, enjoy! More footage and photos at briancaissie.com"

We started at Threadgill's for Roky Erickson's 8th Annual Ice Cream Social. We arrived just as the lead singer of The Riverboat Gamblers took a much applauded climb to the roof to finish up their set.
J Mascis was up next with his new "supergroup" Sweet Apple. Unfortunately, Mascis took the role of second fiddle, handing the spotlight over to singer John Petkovic of Cobra Verde who wiggled about the stage doing his best Joey Ramone meets Mick Jagger impression.
then Roky Erickson! It's a little sad seeing such a legend in a less than legendary state, but he held it together pretty well.
we spotted a pretty slick ride parked outside of ihop.
