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."

Among those in attendance were bandmembers from Silversun Pickups (MySpace), The Movies (MySpace), and Twilight Sleep (MySpace).
