Is this a dream, or is this real life? ? ?

Lucky for us, the answer to this question can truly only be discovered through the musical roller coaster journey offered by none other than the Freaky Boos. Comprised of Jackson Darby (Persons, NPNP), Aaron Hutchinson (Hutchie, eschaton, haolin munk), and Becky Katz (Sourpussy, glassEYElashes, Please),

The Freaky Boos unite under the pretense of experimentally-slick yet sonically-glitchy electronic music–forging to the forefront of our surrealities, substantiating our reflexes for more brave, more weird, more succinct “dream” worlds.

Driven by the fiercely decisive direction of Dons Brown (producer), the trio have congruently melded their diverse musical maps to reflect only the brightest and oddest of jazzy tendencies and electro-r&b fevers–paired with a side of spiritual transformations.

“The one thing we do know–dream or not–the time is now. “
–Dons Brown,

The setting is casual, and though this art party starts at 6pm, feel free to drop by anytime from 6pm to 9pm to say hello and take a look at the new works.

Legend has it, that two people who are destined to meet are connected by an invisible red thread. This spiritual thread may stretch or tangle, but never break. This, and many other legends, myths, and fairly tales are the inspiration behind the surreal photography we invite you all to see.

Artist on Display: Luminita Lou Serbanescu – Original Art

Luminita Lou Serbanescu artist at the shang

After I was invited to show my art at the Shanghai Restaurant and got to know some of the owners of the restaurant, I had the pleasant surprise of discovering that it is not “just a restaurant”, but a mini-community center! Everyone who is someone in Ottawa area, and some from outside, is a friend of the Shanghai! Well known people from all walks of life came in one time or another. So, now it is time that my friends join the crowd and meet me at Shanghai for the vernissage of my China Girl show, on Thursday September 6th, at 7 pm. Great art, good treats and great company! Please come by!
