Fanboys and girls take note! And I count myself in that mix of course. Last year the idols of any self respecting nerd, Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier hosted an amazingly cool art show at Gallery 1988 on Melrose. It was so amazingly cool in fact that they are doing it again this year!
Kevin just announced it on his blog, and Wil instantly hyped it on his. Of course this meant that he wasted precious time and I got to scoop it here on Metblogs. Neener! Ok it’s no secret I’m a huge fan at this point (here’s the crappy review of Clerks 2 i wrote when it came out as proof) but I went to the 2007 version of ‘Crazy 4 Cult’ and it was a ton of fun so I can only assume that the 2008 version will be all that and whatever a focus group bribed with free beverages and schwag thought was missing from round one. Or maybe it’ll just be awesome in it’s own right.
Either way, you should check it out. I mean, assuming you like movie inspired art. If not, then skip it. The opening of ‘Crazy 4 Cult 2‘ is August 22 from 7-11PM at Gallery 1988 (7020 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90038) If you still aren’t convinced, check out this sneak preview on Kevin’s blog.
