Brandise University, the only nonsectarian Jewish-sponsored college in the United States, will be screening the new Sasha Grey movie tonight at their campus in Waltham. As part of their installment of the Brandeis Meet the Artist series, they will feature Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh’s new film, “The Girlfriend Experience” featuring Sasha Grey. The Actress/Porn Star is the lead of the new movie about a $2,000-an-hour Manhattan escort. Soderbergh, takes you into the life of a woman who provides her clients the true “girlfriend experience,” not just your average date. Sophisticated, worldly, well-dressed, and well-versed in the topics of pre-election politics and issues, Grey’s call girl and her accepting trainer boyfriend (Chris Santos) provide us the storyline that guides us through the capitalist underbelly of our society. The screening will start at 7pm and has not be confirmed if it only open to Brandeis students.

This month has been full of new urban art openings in Boston, so we decided we would do a little review and fill you in on them. At the beginning of the month a gallery called “Chorus” opened its doors inside the new bike/design/art space OPEN in Somerville. The show called “Keep it Down” features photography by Justin Keena, and will stay up until May 15th.
Next this month was the Paint Pens in Purses Pop-Up Gallery, which took over Marty’s Liquors in Allston after it permanently closed its doors after 60 years of business. The Paint Pens ladies temporarily utilize the dead space as a pop-up gallery, in an attempt to reclaim and reinvigorate the infamous space. The show includes a multitude of mediums filling up fifteen 7ft x 5ft window display boxes of the large storefront. We aren’t sure how long the pop-up gallery will be there so stop by soon!
Lastly, this past weekend was the much a waited Abstract & Decay show at LAB Boston. Curated by Kenji Nakayama, the art show features work by: Jessica Hess, Anna Trazaska, Katie Hovland and Rahul Shah. Windows for the exhibition were painted by Enamel Kingdom, Evoker & Kenji.

If you haven’t gotten the chance to see the newly renovated House of Blues (what once was our dear Avalon Nightclub) on Lansdowne Street in Boston yet, you might just want to take the opportunity to head down there on Wednesday, May 6th to see The Crystal Method on their Divided By Night tour (album drops May 12th).
Doors open at 7pm with an opening set by our very good friend DJ Melee.

During my most recent trip to L.A. I visited the Bordello club which was hosting a sexy, fetish Burlesque show featuring the lovely Emily Marilyn in a full latex ensemble. Also, on stage was Pyra Sutra who set the stage, and quite literally her nipples on fire. The Petrojvic Blasting Company was the opening band before the show, and in my opinion was the real talent of the night. If you ever get the chance to see them you should definatly check them out. These guys sang, and played multiple instruments…. even playing the drums with their heels. What?! Speaking of heels, I discovered this amazing Insa piece on the exterior wall of a tattoo shop in Venice. Love those legs!
