Hey, thanks for your support, we had a really wonderful opening night, and it was great to see such strong support from everyone who came out.

The link to Virgil Wong’s website is a different Virgil Wong, our Virgil (and in my opinion, a much more exciting and interesting artist) doesn’t have a website up yet. Also, that link to Ryan Dohrety’s page isn’t quite right either, and I’m not too sure where the image of Mikie Poland came from, although the dude with the bass in that pic is the drummer from the amazing band Jeff the Brotherhood, who are one of the most intense live bands out right now.

Sorry, I’m not trying to sound upset or anything, I guess I’ll include any web links in our next press release.

Thanks again for getting the word out!

Hah, well, I’ll remove the links and fix them when I get the right ones. I do my best to track down links, but I can’t always verify who’s who when I don’t have photos of the work. I always tell people to at least put up a blog with contact info and photos of work if they’re showing anywhere. Anyway, I look forward to seeing the show some time. :)
