Don't miss out this Thursday, July 1st.
Exhibition and Fund Raiser at Electric Coffin Studio
Pioneer Square 1st Thursday Art Walk
July 1, 2010 | OK Hotel | 212 Alaskan Way S, Seattle
Bali, Indonesia, a magical place full of mystery and discovery. Presenting
a selection of images bringing you the warmth the people of Bali share.
To resonate the power and mental cleansing one feels by being there.
From the great gods in the hills bringing hope, to the demons all
Balinese fear in the sea; this is a land where love for family and friends
runs paramount. With these images I hope to bring the same
inspirations for life I discovered on my journey.
Proceeds from the sale of prints will help fund my next trip,
a citizen journalism assignment to Guatemala in July.
Working with Salaam Garage and Agros International, I will document
efforts being made to help rural Mayan farmers obtain land ownership
and build sustainable communities in civil war and natural disaster
stricken areas. Photos from the trip will be used to raise awareness
through social media, helping to break the cycle of poverty for rural
families of Guatemala and Central America.
Large Prints: $50 Small Prints: $25
Donations to help support our efforts can also be made.
Stay tuned for more about this trip, ways to buy prints and ways for
you to help at www.plwp.com. Share and get involved!
Who I am going with:
On that note, for first Thursday July 1st, the main gallery in the OK Hotel will be featuring a show with Ben Shepherd from Sound Garden, in which he will be playing an acoustic set. The show also includes other talented artists, Ryan Crase, Vanessa Fiola, Spencer Moody (from Murder City Devils), and Scarlett Lam.
Come out to Electric Coffin to see "From Bali with Love" but make sure you stop upstairs and see this show.

WAILERS, KATCHAFIRE, AND SEAFOOD
Aloha . How you doing? Got exciting plans for the summer? Kore Ionz have teamed up with producer Mell Dettmer (Clinton Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band) and will be spending most of the summer recording our next album at Aleph Studios, right here in Seattle. For this one we'll be bringing in a horn section, a couple of lead guitarists, and some special guests that we can't announce just yet. And of course, in between all the studio work we'll be firing up the BBQ grill, getting some sun, chilling by the lake, and playing some exciting live shows coming up in less than a month! Hope to see you real soon. Photo: Kore Ionz at University of Washington opening for Common, 5/21/10.
TUES JULY 6 THE WAILERS
We sometimes wonder what the world would be like today if Bob Marley was still alive. What kind of international work would he be doing (in addition to performing live) to promote unity, justice, and one love for all humanity? Would there be less government corruption? Would there be less children dying of starvation? We can only wonder. Today, The Wailers are still on an Exodus, moving the people under the leadership of one of music history's greats - Bob's original bass player, Aston "Family Man" Barrett. Because what would reggae music be without the bass?
Kore Ionz perform with The Wailers on TUES JULY 6 at Neumos, 8 pm, $20 ADV, 21+
SAT JULY 10 KATCHAFIRE
Katchafire is an all-Maori New Zealand reggae band that started as a Bob Marley tribute band in 1997. Since releasing three albums of original music, Katchafire has gained immense popularity in Hawai'i, becoming the first band from outside the islands to headline both nights of KCCN FM100's Birthday Bash at the Waikiki Shell, the biggest summer concert event of the year. Katchafire is synonymous with Hawaiian culture and when they arrive in Seattle in July, the Showbox at the Market will transform into a sold-out island oasis for the masses of Polynesians that now make the Pacific Northwest their home.
Kore Ionz perform at Summerfest '10 with Katchafire and Island Bound SAT JULY 10 at Showbox at the Market, 8 pm, $30 ADV, All Ages
