We’re proud to host a Birthday Party for Wage! As many of you know… Wage began the journey for Uglydoll in 2002. The first shop? Giant Robot. Now, ten years later, Wage in it’s original form is reproduced as Uglydoll 10 Year Anniversary Wage (pictured above).
GR2 will host creator David Horvath in a “relaxed event” including Anniversary Wage signing, cake, cookies, button making, and Wages (Bingo)! Come celebrate with us! Facebook event. >>
Giant Robot is proud to present Two of a Kind, an art show featuring new works by Jeni Yang. Whimsical might be the way to describe the works of Taiwan born and Southern California residing artist, Jeni Yang. Her works intersect cats, cakes, and nature. Her recent entry into Giant Robot 2′s Game Over exhibition included a video game, Cat Burger, which will be on display as well. Two of a Kind will include: paintings, drawings, and small sculptures including a wall installation. Facebook event. >>
But of course, the night was about the triumphant return of Redd Kross to The Roxy. The last time I saw them play there was probably on the Third Eye tour. When the curtain raised that night, the Wonder Woman TV show theme song was blasting and they played a legendary show. >>
Finally, it was time for Black Breath. On vinyl, the heshers from Seattle sound like a cage match between rabid prehistoric mammals armed with axes and stacks of amps. Its latest cover art, mashing up the bloodied mirror from Black Flag’s Damaged and hammer from Metallica’s Kill Em All, says it all but in concert the nonstop riffs are revealed to be fun as well as violent with unending hair and headbanging. >>
