As the event coordinator for Video Army the party never stops. Brett organizes a monthly party called GO A.W.O.L. which showcases different musicians, artists, photographers, Djs and local chefs for Venice’s 1st Fridays. As the popularity of this event has grown in the last 7 months, Brett is turning the VA venue into the place to showcase art in Venice with events like the “Venice Art Crawl Official After party” and “The Brave New Music Festival’s Official After-Party” catering to the artists, organizers, musicians, movers and shakers of the Venice Art community.
