Rock Stars of Craft Art to Podcast in LBC


If you’re near Long Beach, podcasters and trouble makers AID – Adventures in Design, featuring prominent gig-poster artists Mark Brickey, Billy Baumann, and James Flames – will be hosting a live show at Phone Booth Gallery in a little over a week.

This ball-busting crew, which I’ve been following for nearly a year now, has been enjoyable for their brotherly antics, but more enlightening is the way they rip away the curtain from the craft arts movement and business. If you’re looking to get a behind-the-scenes look at the craft world then you’ll probably want to go to this show. Be sure to bring your sense of humor.

Don’t worry if you miss the show, however, because there will be a podcast of the show later available on iTunes.

The AID-Live show will have a promising panel including: Shaun Wagner (Tiny Whales), Danny Askar (Screen Printer of the Stars), Delilah Snell (Dear Handmade Life), and Garry Booth (Phone Booth Gallery).

The Show is on Sunday, August 17 with doors opening at 6:00 pm – show is at 7:00.

Phone Booth Gallery is located at 2533 East Broadway, Long Beach, CA 90803.

If you want to hear the show and learn more about Phone Booth Gallery, check out Episode 42 of the AID podcast.
