Mayhaps you noticed this post earlier today on Unfair Park. Then again, maybe you didn't.
Either way, it sure bears repeating: Damien Weighill, the man behind the oh-so-awesome video for Giggle Party's "Jason Bought a Hatchet" will be stopping through town at the end of the month, putting his art--which mostly exists in the same vein as the toungue-in-cheek pop art of the video--up for show (and sale, too) at Kettle Art in Deep Ellum.
And joining Weighill at the show's Saturday, January 30, opening? Why, a performance from Giggle Party. Duh.
Anyway, we'll be there with bells on. And we highly suggest you do the same: Weighill's never been to town before, despite working so closely with Giggle Party on its visual entities.
