Frank 151 and the Lower Left

Last month I ran around the city a lot. I hope to get some more writing work done before the summer begins because I can feel a lot of good parties an vibes coming in the very near future. I spent a fun evening at the Bowery hotel for the Frank 151 Chapter 51 book release Party. It was put together by the books publicist Sydney Reising who did a great job at making sure everyone was having a good time. Got to hang with Estevan Oriol that night and meet some really great people in the industry.

A week later I swung by Wooster Social club to hang with my west coast homie Bobby Tribal where he and Luke Wessman curated a showing of West Coast art work. Some of the heavy hitters included: Risk, OG Abel, Chuey Quintanar, Sal Elias, Maxx 242, Franco Vescovi, Tim Hendricks, Carlos Torres, Steve Soto, Placaso, and of course Estevan Oriol. It was a big party with a group of people you dont get to see in lower Manhattan everyday. They should definitely do that event again soon.
