Mercury Soapbox Update!

Hey Guys!

First of all I want to thank all of you for coming out and continuing to support Mercury Soapbox, free art and expression. I'm getting closer and closer every day to establishing Mercury Soapbox as a First Amendment Platform, meaning that we are here for you to be able to express yourself freely. Ok , now some quick updates:

  • First of all a HUGE THANK YOU to our featured artists from the "Whirl of Colors" event, Hope Spithaler, Carlos Sebastian Guzman and FatTricks. We got started a little late but we got it in, got it done and had a lot of fun. Hope canvassed peices were amazing and full of color, Carlos' work inspired a different view of things we see everyday and FatTricks wowed us with his graceful explosions of human flippery! It was insane, make sure to check out the pics and comment.

  • Let me take this chance to introduce DJ Komon, who courageously djed the "Whirl of Colors" event with shaky equipment and burned-a-second-ago tracks. He still managed keep our heads banging and bodies moving all night, and now he's going to be Mercury Soapbox' resident DJ!

  • NEXT EVENT!! Mercury Soapbox Presents AUAS Another Urban Art Sho Featuring GIC and FunkFace, a live hip hop band, doing a few bangers to rock to, another public collective graffitti peice, of course free art to see and (what!?) a live band freestyle jam! If you rock the mic or want to jam with pro's hit us up asap, theres a list growing...

  • And lastly, the next 2 events are the "Hip Hop Halloween Party" on october 29th with scary goodness, zombie dance offs, face painting and a haunted house for your hands, and an untitled interactive literary event november 12th (still working out deets on that one)
We're always looking for artists that want to show or or musicians that want to play. If you have an opinion on something, comment and lets chat. We'll be posting public opinions lists, just fun little lists people at the events fill out together. You'd be surprised what pops into your head, lol!
