Well, is this is turning out to be a fine weekend for art. First Skewville, and now HVW8! This Friday night, 33 1/3 Books and Gallery Collective in Echo Park will be hosting an art show with the Montreal-based collective.

“Politcal Minded II” is the second installment of Heavyweight’s ongoing series of portaits and hommages to figures that the painting collective has considered of social and political influence and interest. Heavyweight’s work is known to feature portrait dedications to musical, artistic and cultural icons in elaborate colorful canvases. I don’t know if they’re planning on doing any of it, but these guys are some of the best live painters in North America as well. Hopefully we’ll get a taste of that.
