Bumbershoot Visual Arts Gala

I know it's a bit last minute but everybody should check out the Bumbershoot Visual Arts Gala Tonight. It's the closest thing to an actual survey of what is happening in art here in Seattle all in one place. Here's some info for you---
Visual Arts Gala Opening • Bumbershoot Kick-Off Party!

Wednesday August 31, 6:00 pm — 9:30 pm
Northwest Court Rooms, Seattle Center

FREE • Complimentary Appetizers, No Host Bar

Featuring: The Pop Smear Test
Presented by Seattle School

Witness! Two competing teams will create original music using only source audio collected and recorded from the audience.

Corey Paganucci (KUMA) and Robert Millis (Climax Golden Twins)
vs. DJ Nordic Soul and Jesse Paul Miller

The winning team will be determined by reading audience members’ physical reactions to the music. Medical readings will be administered by real nurses!
