Art In the Streets @ MOCA

Art In the Streets @ MOCA Geffen Contemporary

Saturday I finally made my way down to see the exhibit. I was under the impression that the works were on the outside in the parking lot area and surrounding areas. Well it's true that there is a few pieces but that was just the tip of the iceberg. After paying the $10 (definitely worth it) I headed inside to see what MOCA had to offer. From a few friends that went I only knew that Banksy, Shepard Fairey and JR were in it. But there was so much more I wasn't expecting, New Yorks' Haze, a Basquiat, Ed Templeton photos, Raymond Pettibon flyers, short film by Spike Jonze, Mark Gonzalez , sheesh they even had Terry Richardson and Keith Haring. There is much more that I'm forgetting too oh like a guy names Roa. And we're not talking one are two pieces by these people but whole walls or sections. Please take the time and do yourself a favor and go! I not a fan of the graffiti that plagues the sides of liquor stores but murals and pieces like this I do...

Not sure if I was going to make the whole New Age Fest with it starting around noon, so I decided to hit this show up to catch some of the bands I was gonna miss. Cutting Through and Decline are always fun to watch. Loved Safe & Sound and Restraining Order. Second dose of Fixation was nice and look out for new merch by Treason with a photo you might recognize. Notspoken? Wasn't sure what was going to go on with this one... short but sweet set with 3 singers. It was fun.

Rad show in a very sketchy neighborhood. I kinda miss those 7th street shows now. Venue was really cool, a nice warehouse with a great stage.  Perfect line up and a show where I didn't wanna miss a single band. Honestly these shows are when I miss little Danny most, these are the bands that he loves. Hopefully he'll be down for FTC.
