*RECAP* Dope Show @ Bar Basic

Hello...

Tuesday nights are no longer school nor werk nights. It's another "Thursday" type night of drinking and socializing.  And for those who can't wait till the end of the week to get away from the daily grind, Basic Tuesdays is a great event to go to.

It was a great turn out despite the soccer game that was happening at neighboring Petco Park...parking was horrible. We managed though, and walked quite a distance to our destination. But no worries, we needed the exercise anyway. We saw a lot of familiar faces.  People from high school, past co-werkers and even our waiter from our favorite and only all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ joint: Jeong Won. Members of the Dope Show crew was also in attendance: Koi, Gumaro, Franky Agostino, MOFO, EMAN,  Monique Jenkins, and other artist we haven't quiet had the pleasure of meeting yet.

There was a good buzz.

Also our third member MRV, took time off from the books and made it out to the event.

So I was talking to Franky about his painting (below) and I told him how his work kind of reminded me of David Mcdowell's paintings.  The similarities I saw was that there was a sense of fun-loving poke at society using multiple images to convey that society "sarcasm".  Well after I made that comment, he goes on telling the story behind his piece.  The girl in the painting is a good friend of Franky's which she used to work in the corporate world. From my understanding, after several years in the rat races, she soon realizes that it suck worse than (fill in the blanks)...long story short, she said she wished that all those business suits with their fancy umbrellas and suit cases to just jump off the Coronado Bridge.

We had a chance to chop it up with local artist known as KOI.  We had a brief meeting with the graff artist five Dope Shows ago and we were glad to see that he remembered the Nasty Crew.  We we surprised and stoked to hear that he's a follower of our blog and he gave us praise on our "content".  We spoke for a bit about art in general, art in SD and other randomness.  We intently listen while Koi was telling his stories on his lastest trip to Taiwan, while "double fisting" drinks...a person that enjoys drinking as much as we do, is a coo guy in my book.

No wonder we haven't met Monk...he's been living in China for the past year.  But that doesn't stop him from delivering some dope prints.
