An amazing person walked into Petra Gallerie SORO Social Club a couple months ago. His name is Omni...and he is all things. His willingness to participate with us inspired me to open up our house to him and his ideas. One of his first ideas was to shoot his latest music video at Petra...and to put me and the tattoo artists here, Sameerah, in it. Little did we know we would be as much a part of it as we were. I was honored to have my art associated with such a talent.
I will put a link to the video as soon as the Director, Pat Hartonian, gives me the ok...Hartonian...sounds like a fuckin super hero...and he is. Wait till you see his Sci Fi movie he's working on...brilliant!
So OMNI decided he want to include music into the night, and me being inspired by music and always wanting some sort of performance art in everything we do here at Petra Gallerie SORO Social CLub I was all for it.
I called one of my oldest friends, Gabriel Harmell, to set up the equipment along side Woven front man and Piel bass player/song writer, Jawnee Burkes we put together something I call "PLAY NICE" which will be one of our new reoccurring events at our spot. Live, improvisational jams with some of the most elite and original artists in Los Angeles.
We didn't record the night but got a couple tracks on my Flip...the Flip sucks for recording audio so forgive the quality. We were all too caught up in having fun to properly document the night...but next time we'll be more dialed in to share to the goodness.
Love and respect to all who participated!
