Igloo Tornado is an East Side based art collective (they actually call it a Fraternity, which when you account for their frequent references to beer, can probably be taken in both the Classical Greek and Collegiate meanings) featuring the work of Levon Jihanian, Tom Neely, Gin Steven and Scot Nobles.

They formed in 2004, had their first show as a group in 2006 and after a two year hiatus, they're back with an Eponymously titled event that opens tomorrow night at the black maria gallery in Atwater Village. I was invited to watch them set up the show last Wednesday, and after letting me mooch beer off of them, they were nice enough to submit to a poorly organized interview wherein they shared their thoughts on art, their shared sense of humor (and love of beer,) and the surprising influence of Dungeons & Dragons on the current show.
