More Awesomeness Announced for Swerve Festival

Just when we think, surely Jonathan Wells and his merry gang can’t squeeze any more action into these three days of joy, they hit us up with yet another announcement. Here’s the latest news from the Swerve Festival, taking place next weekend in LA.

Remember we told you that Aaron Rose would be curating the art show? Well here’s what Rose has to say about that: “Looking at art in galleries is dead. I didn’t want to have a little art ghetto in the middle of this dynamic festival.”

So, artists like Mike Mills, Terry Richardson, Thomas Campbell, Geoff McFetridge, Ed Templeton, Chris Johanson and more were given instructions for how to build 15-foot high pinwheels that will dot the Barnsdall Art Park grounds.

25 trees will be transformed into “Listening Trees” where you can put on a pair of vintage headphones and hear musicians and performing artists like Animal Collective, No Age, Tommy Guerrero and BARR.

Plus, poke your face into novelty backdrops with cut-out head-holes by graffiti artists, check out the murals by Sage Vaughn, Chris Pastras and Jesse Spears, and should you want to take the art home with you, Jesse Spears will even grace a selected body part with a Sharpie tattoo.

Tickets and details here. And we will see you there.

Aaron Rose’s New Group Show Opens in LA

It was hard not to feel the love at the opening of “Other Scenes” at Roberts & Tilton Saturday night, namely because the gallery was throbbing with the belly-warming aural assault of No Age, who played a live set amidst the art-goers. The Aaron Rose-curated show featured the work of Raymond Pettibon, Ryan McGinley and Rita Ackermann, among others, and was attended by more than a few stars of the documentary Beautiful Losers, currently in the final stages of post production.

Rose’s ever-present hat bobbed among Mike Mills and web designer-of-the-moment Miranda July, Ed and Deanna Templeton, Craig Stecyk, and Geoff McFetridge with a little one in tow. A “Scrubby”-looking Zach Braff poked his head in for a bit, and a sighting of a cast member from the “L Word” also generated some buzz, although we never did quite find out which one it was.

The crowds thinned a bit as the stack of empty Coors Banquet Beers grew taller, and No Age began to pack up for a second show at the Troubadour, but we did have the chance to compliment Randy Randall on his coonskin hat, which, as the attached tag proved, was an authentic Frontierland purchase.
