Foo Fest is almost a week away. Leading up to the event you can watch history in the making on the rear exterior wall of the Pell Chafee building in downtown Providence. AS220 has commissioned the largest Shepard Fairey mural in the world to be completed in time for the festival. Make a point to walk down Aborn Street – you may see Johann Bjurman, the Rhode Island muralist and fine artist in process. Limited edition prints are for sale.
We had so much fun last year. We’ll be back again playing, making fairy houses, listening to music and more at one of the coolest happenings this summer.Â Are you going? I’d love to see you there. I have two 4-packs of ticket wrist-bands to give away this week. Each wrist-band allows one person entry into the festival on August 14th between 1 PM to 1AM.
