Photo Pop 2012

TGImotherfuckinF y'all! I'm so happy that it's Friday right now. I don't know about y'all but this week seemed to last two weeks and I really need to get my drank on. Tonight, tonight some of my favorite Austin concert-photographers are showcasing their work and selling prints at Red 7. They'll be displaying and selling prints of some of their best stuff from 7p-9p followed by live performance from some great local bands.

The featured photographers this evening include, Pooneh Ghana, Timothy Griffin, Randy Cremean, Brian Gray, Rick Kern and Gary Miller. These photogs have agreed to share the proceeds from the sale of their prints with the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians. So, not only will you be acquiring some beautiful art, you'll be helping Austin Musicians get and keep health insurance!

Tonight's event is broken up into two pieces. You are free to attend the photography exhibit from 7p-9p and have some drinks with no cover charge. If you want to stay passed 9p to see the bands perform there is a $7 cover to go to the bands. That $7 gets you performances from 5 bands though, which is a pretty good deal if you ask me. Performing this evening will be Royal Forest, Low Times, Tiger Waves, Shivery Shakes and Grape Street.

If you'd like to know more about the bands, photographers or the event itself, I encourage you to head on over to Austin Town Hall. They are the fine folks who made tonight's Photo Pop 2012 a reality.
