Myopenbar Presents: Four Square Punk And A Roller-Skating Rink By Saucony

Food by Traveling Bistro!!!!!

Myopenbar is returning to Austin this year and we invited 50 of our favorite punk rock bands to come out and play. The result is four stages, in a square formation, with room for your crowd-surfing ass in the middle. And a cameo by a fifth stage: a school bus. And a roller-rink, courtesy of Saucony Originals, with free skate rentals and a chance to win free shoes.

Plutopia 2009 Smidget

I, Beth Been, am participating in Plutopia 2009: Living Systems. In an attempt to be as interactive as possible, I am sharing a little piece of the art and info related to this project.

Roller Derby in the Living Systems Theory according to the Scarlot Harlot is based on the digram below. Sorry for the long title. For some reason it had to be that way. In the end I am not sure how closely my final product will stick to the explanation, but the whole artwork started from this diagram and reading. Something being broken off from society in their own living system and needing certain things to keep it going. Currently, this work contains paint, paper, and glitter. Soon there will be a red plaid skirt and flowers. I’m NOT showing an example of the work below. That is just the inspirational diagram. You’ll have to come back to see if I show you any of it!!!

the Living Systems Theory

The Nitrogen Cycle is almost finished in felt, cross stitch, sewing, etc. I give you a small sample of the labels and a duck. There’s also a deer and some other happy faces. There are rumors of a duck tiara. Hell maybe a deer one, too.
