NUMBER NINE: By Artist Miggy Aguilar
Live Fast/Die Slow, the visual component to 45 Fest, opened last night. It's made up of 37 pieces, each designed by local artists attempting to capture the spirit of the band Spector 45. The winning work will be used as the album art for an upcoming retrospective release, but really the artists participated and donated because the money generated goes to a great cause.

Designed as a silent auction, everything in Live Fast/Die Slow starts at $45, and cash raised goes to the 45 Fund, a non-profit that provides mental health access to local musicians and artists. The bidding continues at Kettle Art until Saturday evening, so if you couldn't break away from your couch chrysalis last night, you've still got time.

Here's a peek at our 9 favorites.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
