Thank you all for coming out to preview the Labor Temple Project progress.  So many of you had such nice things to say about the work and The Somatadors brought their  new Wednesday Ambient night, “Secret Society” to Vela and gained some new initiates to the family.  For those of you who could not make it, it is alright, I am still a long way away from completing the project and Secret Society is a weekly event.  Every week I will be plugging along with the mural so there will always be something new to see.

Labor Temple Project

January 4, 2011

I went down to the Labor Temple this weekend and tried to tighten some of ceiling sketches before this Wednesdays progress preview. I was also able to start a little bit of the panel above the bar. You will have to come down on wednesday to see how that is coming.

Speaking of Wednesday January 5th, I was down there last night framing up the sketches and listened to Joe and Marc while they did a sound check. I knew that these two were talented, but I was really blown away by how good they sounded. If I could describe it I would tell you that an out of body experience would just be the begin of you experience listening to them. It is wacky and weird, hard and soft, black and white, you get the point. Basically, not to be missed.

We will kick off the festivities around 7pm but feel free to come down whenever you want. The drinks are good.
