The Art Of Ronald Dzerigian w/ The Pity Party @ Echo Curio, 7/3/08
Last Thursday, Echo Curio (MySpace) presented a show with local artist Ronald Dzerigian (MySpace) and local band The Pity Party (MySpace). Much of The Pity Party's merchandise showcases Dzerigian's artwork, and this evening featured their free limited-edition show-exclusive Rubbish EPs with hand-drawn art by Dzerigian on unused vinyl billboard material (which was also used for their recent Orgy Porgy EP).
As described by Wikipedia, "[Dzerigian] has been characterized as a neo-Dadaist, although there are Neo-romantic and mystical elements to his aesthetic orientation."
Special thanks to Ronald Dzerigian, The Pity Party, and Echo Curio.
