Everyone's Getting the Hell Out of Town

Since I am looking to hop on the moving band wagon (yes, the Rockies are calling my name), I saw this and giggled. From Laura Palmer:

"Many of you know we're moving, but did you know so are everyone else??
I just went to a going away party on Saturday (apologies if I barfed on you), and now I'm playing at one THIS SUNDAY 8/31. And it's not even mine! My good friends Aaron and Samantha are the ones going away this time. You know Sam. She's the one who punched you in the face and then dry humped you as you lay on the ground.
The whole thing is happening at:
Double Wide
9:00 PM
and features the music and wisdom of yours truly and Tiger Moth.

It will be the second to last Laura Palmer show in Dallas and, if I'm in the right mood, I might tell you to fuck off. If I'm in the wrong mood, I might tell you I love you.
Be there!

Geomorph: Rethinking Landscape
Centraltrak: The UT Dallas Artists Residency

August 16 - September 15, 2008

"A mixed-media show focusing on varied representations and embodiments of “landscape.”

Artists include Peter Ligon, Mark Schatz, Lisa Nersesova, Lanie DeLay, Mike Westfried and Jim Malone."

Mark Schatz, Googling Mackinac, 2007


"As artists in residence at Centraltrak channel through town for a few weeks of time, we find that one of our live-work lofts, Unit 9, is intermittently open. Rather than let space go unused, we have decided to inject it with life. Unit 9 will be a temporary “project room” from August through December.

August 16 - September 15, 2008

Here's a little bit more info for those of you who are unfamiliar with this nifty artist residency in fair park:

Centraltrak: The UT Dallas Artists Residency

"Centraltrak is in the historic and newly renovated Fair Park Station Post Office Building in Deep Ellum, a revitalizing neighborhood and hip alembic chamber for creativity and artistic happenings. The name Centraltrak comes from the rich history of Deep Ellum. Because of the proximity of the Houston and Texas Centraltraks, the neighborhood was also known as "Centraltrak." In choosing this name, we pay homage to the cultural history of the area – the fact that Deep Ellum was an area settled as a "freedmens' town" by former slaves after the Civil War and that it was an entertainment, retail, and industrial hub.

Centraltrak is a multi-purpose arts building, with four live-work loft spaces for artists, eight studios for U.T. Dallas MFA students, and a gallery. We host four visiting artists, three international or national artists from outside of Texas and one Texan. Artists are selected by a committee of senior faculty of the School of Arts and Humanities at U.T. Dallas and members of the curatorial and educational staffs of the Dallas Museum of Art. The artists carry out projects in the space of Centraltrak and public realm of DFW, exhibit their work, and give public lectures for periods varying from two weeks to twelve months."
