Bizarro au Gogo Hits the Hive Gallery Saturday Night

Ready to go bizarro?
This Saturday night, June 8, 2013
the Hive Gallery opens its 
Bizarro au Gogo and Oz-themed show
featuring the work of many of your friends at IPM.  

Not sure what Bizarro au Gogo even means? 
Well then follow the great words of nobody in particular as quoted from a widely publicized and completely imaginary interview: "If you don't understand what Bizarro au Gogo means, just picture a pretty face... but with puke on it... possibly while in outer space. Also, something about tits. Yeah, totally tits all the time. Well, tits would be nice, anyway." 

Opening Reception, Saturday, June 8, 2013
8-1130 p.m.
The Hive Gallery
729 S. Spring Street
Los Angeles, CA 90014
Show runs thru June 29th, 2013

which means you can come for FREE
 if you're a shameless cheapskate and you totally hate art.

If you haven't already, pick up a copy of Bizarro au Gogo, this weekend, 
the book originally put out through Ink Pen Mutations Press. 

"Truly a masterpiece and an offensive eyesore. I feel tingly inside."
~another fake quote regarding Bizarro au Gogo and the sleazy universe of  Cig Neutron
Cig Neutron in his Sunday best. Or make that, his Sunday breasts.

Notable participating IPM artists include Ave Rose, Cig Neutron with an installation and as guest curator, KASL,and Ken Dougherty.
Hobimbo, the inspiration for Ave Rose's piece (shown below) and frightened children everywhere.

They say that a life-sized Barbie doll's proportions would make her tip right over.
But Ho-Barbie-bimbo
would definitely drop on her ass.

Unnatural Abduction of the Aliens in Los Angeles... and You

This past Memorial Day weekend was memorable indeed. All new Ave Rose accessories and artwork made their debut, and the turn out was up to snuff more than a Hufflepuff at the Wizard Alley Craft Fair at Whimsic Alley.  Ave Rose also performed an opening operatic aria to launch a bizarre but enticing, philanthropic event of Chessboxing.

What happens to people after experiencing an Ave Rose aria.

But what's on the rise for this weekend with IPM?
Why, aliens, of course.
In good ole Los Angeles.

This Saturday night, the Aliens are hitting LA and joining forces with the Unnatural Alliance for an epic show of music and art, which has been plugged in Los Angeles highlights for weeks--namely the LA Music Blog and the Tool news feed (archives May 8, 2013). Basically, this is going to be an alien interaction of mothership magnitude, so you won't want to miss it. 

Aside from a slew of bands, and a hoard of art from across the Los Angeles County solar system, welcome a  long awaited, dearly hoped for, damned to be decked out Aliens in LA appearance and book signing. Get a copy, bring a copy, or just bring your bad ass on.  Come in costume, or just come.
Got aliens?
Details one more time:
Aliens in  LA sighting and book signing scheduled at the
8 p.m. until the last alien departs
8531 Lankersheim Blvd.
Sun Valley, CA 91352
$10 at the door

Amongst the artwork will be the goods of Ave Rose and Treoips Treyfid
Featured here, Treiops Treyfid preparing for his transformation into the Wred Skayre
Many more artists will be featured and live music. 
Basically, it's kind of a big deal. 
Come get your abduction on this Saturday night.
