Bath House Cultural Center
Reception : Saturday, April 30, from 7- 9 p.m.
A Night of Loteria: Saturday, May 7, from 7-8:30 p.m. Meet the artists and play the game using a commemorative deck of cards with reproductions of the original artwork from the show.
This exhibition features 54 local artists who created artwork based on the pictures and symbols from La Loteria, a popular Mexican board game. Loteria resembles a form of bingo that uses pictures instead of numbers. In the game, each player is given a card with 16 squares with pictures and beans to mark the squares that have been called. The first person to get four pictures in a row, vertically, horizontally or diagonally, hollers out LOTERIA and wins the game.
La Lotería is produced by popular artists throughout Mexico. There are different versions of the game, all lovely variations of what remains, essentially, the same symbols. The images from the game depict common everyday objects, places and characters that are easily recognized and significant to the traditions and culture of Mexico.

Snoop Dogg unveils the next visual off his current Doggumentary album and this one’s a true meeting of legends as the Doggfather teams up with folk icon Willie Nelson for “Superman.” It sure is no coincidence that this clip arrived on 4/20. This video features footage from that performance, along with the duo goofing off in the studio. The highlight of the entire collaboration though is Snoop Dogg’s attempt at singing. Enjoy!

So their new album is out, the tour is on full swing, and we should be thankful to have: Watch the 'Nine Types Of Light' Movie Nine Types of Light. It's as much an album as it is a movie by TV on the Radio. The movie is meant to be a visual re-imagining of the record, and includes a music video for every song on the new album. The band personally asked their friends and the filmmakers they admired to help direct the music videos. Tunde Adebimpe, the director for the full Nine Types of Light movie, storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future.
Austin Kleon is a writer from Austin, TX. He is the author of Newspaper Blackout. In his book he makes poems by using newspaper and blacking out words with sharpee until only the words of the poem were left clear. He just recently wrote these very very very very cool tips on writing and drawing. And I am very serious when I use the word very. I don't use it loosely. Anyhow, I'll link up to his blog where he lays out How To Steal Like An Artist (And 9 Other Things Nobody Told Me). Very self-explainable. If you are missing the important ingredient to cook up the best creative ideas ever, then you MUST read it. Going thru the article and some of the links there really changed my way I see things now, mainly because I forgot about myself. It was like a slap on the face.

Check out the first single from Danger Mouse and Danile Luppi’s new album, Rome. The album was inspired by the film soundtrack work of Ennio Morricone, who composed and arranged scores for more than 500 film and TV productions, including the classic spaghetti Western The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly. The record was recorded at Rome’s Forum Studios, and the album features musicians who actually worked with Morricone.

There’s no doubt that the talents of Danger Mouse are in heavy demand. Mixing Jay-Z with The Beatles and backing up Cee Lo Green with a mainstream-friendly sound earned him production credits for the likes of The Black Keys, Broken Bells, Danger Doom and Beck. However, Danger Mouse also has a passion project going on with Italian composer Daniele Luppi called Rome. The fairly secretive project took five years to create songs inspired by their shared love of of classic Italian film scores from the 1960s. Capitol Records has confirmed a new U.S. release date of May 17, 2011 for this collaborative effort and sent out a visual teaser that you can watch above.
