David Choe Snowman Monkey BBQ Book Flip-Through - nsfw

This is David Choe's epic new book, Snowman Monkey BBQ. I enjoy the fact that the shape of the book is super tall, and the pages are filled with energy from his multi-faceted lifestyle-paintings, watercolors, and nudes. When GR2 opened in 2003, David Choe was the first exhibition. It was also his first exhibition in LA (I don't think this is a clue answer for the 100k). David helped remove my doubts on showing art. The crowd was tremendous, and it was a great evening that undoubtedly launched new artists and galleries. In 2003, the art scene was quite different. Most of the galleries you frequent, were not around. There wasn't a culture of driving from place to place to see various...

Show reviews: Guitar Wolf, Coathangers, Earthless, Joy, Bulletins, Best Coast, plus David Choe

It doesn’t suck to live in California, where you get to see bands like Best Coast play free record-release shows at Amoeba. Yes, the brand-new EP is as amazing as the RSD 7″ led us to believe, perfectly combining honesty and polish, and the new songs sounded great live. So did favorites like “The Only Place,” “Crazy for You,” and the closer, “Girlfriend.” The place was packed and stoked and so was Bethany, who made a point to repeatedly thank all the fans and friends for being there. Watch the set at the Amoeba site when you have the time! Afterward there was a record signing where Eloise got to give Bobb and Bethany band portraits that she drew while...
