We received a nice email from Michael Kosmicki out of London. Really impressive portfolio. Thanks for the link.
I’m kind of exited about the new group Them Crooked Vultures. Band consists of Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl (drums), Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme (guitar), and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones (bass and keyboards). You can’t get your hands on any music yet, with the exception of some cellphone video from a show in Chicago, and as far as I can tell you can’t see where or when they’ll be playing next. Quite mysterious. I think these guys have potential though (despite “super group” reputation), sounds like they rock pretty good.
I recently discovered the work of Chad Kouri, a member of The Post Family out here in Chicago. They’re an art collective, blog, gallery, and store, with lots going on… keep up on their movements here. And if you’re looking for something to do tomorrow night, go see the closing party for a show Chad curated at Co-Prosperity Sphere – check out getittogethershow.com for more info.
Hugo Hoppmann has a new portfolio site and store. He’s from Cologne, Germany, currently studying at ECAL in Switzerland.
