ARTslam.

I like to consider myself a nice person who is 96% unjudgemental (4% because I am a human..) however, right now I cannot handle people who complain about San Antonio.
I regularly hear “gosh, there is NOTHING to do in San Antonio.” Or ” Everything that happens in Austin is so much cooler than San Antonio.”
Let me tell you all, San Antonio has a lot to offer, you might have noticed if you read this regularly…

So far, my favorite event is Artslam. You should read the SAcurrent if you want to know about these events.

This years artslam was conveniently at the White Rabbit which is down the street from my school! It is a giant live art showcase with local bands, DJs and artists. There are always featured artists so this years from New York was Buff Monster and two others I can’t remember…

Jordan. Hehe

One thing to know about the White Rabbit is that it is already covered in graffiti! It’s a really badass building on the outside and pretty extensive on the inside, but they painted a whole stretch of wall white for the featured artists to lay it down

This guy was EXTRAORDINARY! He was the most talented spray paint artist I’ve ever seen. He made this while we watched and it was incredibly detailed and looked like a PHOTO by free handing spray paint. Here is my friend Will with the finished piece… He was quite a fan of this fictionous woman.

Bands who played: JAPANTHER (awesome pop punk band), the lastnighters, pop pistol, and some others. My favorite was deervibes!
They are a local band who are huge, in number I mean. Possibly 12 people on stage…? Including a tuba, violin and trumpet. Out come some awesome sounds.

Okay my favorite part of the night. zombie make up. We walked by a booth that seemed to have some strange things around it.. Like x men characters and film noir guns. This woman was in a chair and had some interesting make up on so we approached and watched for a while.

We talked to them for a bit and learned that she has a clothing line and hired him for a photo shoot, they became fast friends and now she regularly gets zombified by him. They went to the walking dead convention, and afterwards out for hamburgers in full makeup. Ordered a brain burger.
