- Joshua Cobos/The Bold Italic
Well, The Bold Italic is indeed doing something awesome this week. Something called "Bold Rush"—a three-city tour (Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle) bringing with them, live music, art, and ping pong.
And not just ANY ping pong—this is American Tripps Berlin-style ping-pong. I mean, just look at it. Is it ping pong or it musical chairs? I hear it's crazy-fun, and I can't wait to try it.
The event is 100% free, starts at 10 pm at Neumos, and you should RSVP here. Party-starters Don't Talk To The Cops, and the Maxines play, along with some hot-shot DJs from Hardly Art Records. Stranger will be there too, with our corn-hole, I mean PORN-hole beanbag toss game.
If all this wasn't enough, during the day, the Bold Rush team will host a pop-up shop at Artache Market at Vermillion Art Gallery: Saturday Oct 6, 2-6 pm, and Sunday Oct 7, 3-8 pm. Read an interview with Seattle Artache curator Marz.
Lastly, check out a photo essay I did for Bold Italic where I admit to the whole world that PONY is my most favorite bar in Seattle. There, I said it.
