As I typed “Second Saturday” into the title space, I stopped momentarily because I don’t know if Second Saturday on Walnut St will continue and grow without Nikki Hamblin in Johnson City. I hope it does (though obviously not for PROJEXx). And I hope that title reads like a talk show intro.
I didn’t get many pictures at all of First Friday because I was occupied at Venus & Fur…
There was a lot of great stuff going on, though, and I recommend trying to see those exhibitions before they come down. I definitely will, especially now that I’m not trying to finish 32 paintings in 2 weeks (read: madwoman).
If anyone has some photos or videos of FF they’d like to share, I’ll add’em to the post. For now, to relieve some of my discomfort about a post revolving around myself, I’m posting a stolen photo taken by Brian Paddock of Joybang playing at The Mecca Lounge downtown. Daddy Don’t of Knoxville played, too. It was a lot of fun. I love that place, those people.
