Oh, Annie Leibovitz, has it come to this? Well, I guess we all need a pawn shop at times. I'm sorry, my dear crawlers, there isn't a lot going on, but there are a few things worth seeing. I want to give a shout out to Myeong Beom Kim, who has work at Thomas Masters, and Lilly McElroy, who has work up at Thomas Robertello. I can't not love taxidermied deer with insanely oversized antlers, and photos of people throwing themselves at others. Awesome. And if your looking for something to do Saturday night, the Post Family is throwing and art and music shindig at there place. Enjoy, my friends.
