The Union Massacre, Art & Benefit Show

Tonight, Friday the 7th at 8pm, The Phoenix Theater in Petaluma will be hosting the Union Massacre, a benefit show and art auction. The Board of Directors at the Phoenix has approved the constructing of a large Art Wall. It will be a place where street artists can express themselves freely. The show is honor of this, and proceeds go towards raising money to pay for the materials it takes to build it. One giant step for Petaluma art, and a step for Graffiti art everywhere, I'd say.
For a donation of $8 at the door you will enjoy musical performances by: TOP.R with DJ Max Kane of 4OnePhonics, Steel Trap, One In The Chamber, Zap Syndicate, Real Talk, The Urban Apache Breakerz, DJ Defie, and DJ Beset. Artists creating live paintings include: Alex Pardee, Wesker, Sorrow, and Jeb One. A few of the artists' pieces will be available for sale and a little birdie told me at reasonable prices. It's always a great idea to purchase art that you love; especially, before the artist hits it big and you can't afford it anymore. Having seen the works of a few of them, it's safe to say fame is only a matter of time.
So whatever you were going to do tonight- scratch that. Instead come listen to some music, buy some art, watch a few break dancers bust a move and some extremely talented artists paint. Come down and support the local arts and the building of a very large open canvas for street artists to beautify. Pink Floyd sang it best when they sang, "All in all, it's just another brick in the wall," and we will build it together by contributing to this show.
