Artwork up for grabs: Damien Hirst, Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Spencer Tunick, Art brewer, Wilfredo Chiesa, Billi Kid, Hiroyuki Matsuura, Hubert Waldroup, Jeremy Dean, Jayson Atienza, Sofia Maldonado, Josh Cheuse, and loads more.

I’ll Be John Brown

We’re not quite sure how to describe I’ll Be John Brown‘s music.  It’s like almost Psychedelic Speed Country, if that makes sense?  Have a listen over at their site, and if you’re into it, they’ll be playing a show at Spike Hill in Brooklyn this Sunday night.
