  2. A modern vintage marketplace April 14, 2012. Salvage.  Featuring clothing, decor, home goods, furniture, books, collections and more. Sounds worth checking out too me.

  3. "In Atlanta,
    everyone drives. The bartender called us
    “hardcore” when we said we’d walked there.
    She said, “No one in Atlanta walks anywhere.”"

    This Friday, 10 readers, including me, will be reading about time travel (or maybe something else equally as interesting).

  5. Book w/Photos about Atlanta Beltline Art and Performances 2011

    This is pretty sweet. The Atlanta BeltLine released a book with photos about art and performances that took place in 2011. Good to see, if you didn’t get to see all of the projects. 

    Here’s a link to the PDF. / HT www.artsatl.com

    Some photos I took along part of the Beltline a few weeks ago.

    This is a great idea.
     
     
  7. Scenes from All 4 One: Old Fourth Ward Art Stroll last weekend, Sat. March 10, 2012. Saw some amazing stuff. This is only some of it. 

    Four galleries in one night. They say they will do another stroll in a few months. I hope they will. 

    The sculptures by artist Jac Coffey were particularly amazing, while I love work of Peter Ferrari (@PLFpaint). 

    The Fear and Loathing also exhibit had many impressive pieces. 

     
     
  8. This is wonderful (an essay by an Atlanta writer)

    Just read a wonderful essay by Atlanta writer, Jamie Iredell. 

    What You Can Learn From LSD published by Thought Catalogue.

    It was early spring, buds of green leaves sprouting from trees that had been nothing but bark for three months. Gray snow had not yet melted in the shadows of Angel Alley where I lived in my apartment that was built into the basement of a large house, the foundation of which was set into a hill, so that I literally lived halfway underground, like something out of a fairytale.

    Worth a read, especially if you’re a writer. 

     

     
     
  9. This Atlanta performance art project sounds awesome

    A migrating theatrical experience at The Goat Farm that explores the story of Little red Riding Hood in a “more blushed and grim” way. Sounds intriguing to me. 

    Rua | Wülf.

    The Kickstarter campaign got funded. So, it will be happening. 

    Rua | Wülf opens on April 11, 2012, and runs Wednesday-Sunday every week through April 29, with a rain day show on the 30th. Tickets will be $25 in advance at brownpapertickets.com and 30$ at the door, where we’ll be able to take cash or card.
