Special guests: Rapt Aerial Dance. Bonus: tunes from DJ Chorizo Funk and door prizes from Adult Video Megaplex and Package Menswear.

    Yard Dog: The Party's Just Getting Started

    Party's just getting started, yeah, and is that Bob Schneider music they're playing? Maybe. But maybe it's also some of this, excuse me, fucking righteousvisual work that the man's been up to recently. We fairly raved about his monochrome etchings, back in the day; this new full-color painting/collage thing Schneider's doing is at least as impressive – and more vibrant across the spectrum of light. Been to Yard Dog lately? Here's you a good excuse.
