The setting for Saturday, March 10th's show is my absolute FAVORITE way to share an evening with some beautiful fellow artists.

Two extremely splendid things happening that Tiny Messengers want to let y'all know about:
1. Kimo Muraki's (f)art show at Outlander Brewery and Pub is only up until the end of Feb! Come on down to Fremont and check it out! All prints are for sale and very reasonably priced. This is a collection of my Aerochrome EIR Color Infrared photos, 120mm medium format and taken with an ancient Holga. EIR has long since been discontinued and digital is not capable of reproducing the effect that you get from this film. We think it's pretty neat-o... you decide...
2. Kimo's next SOLO performance is on SATURDAY, MARCH 11th at the Phinney Neighborhood Concert Center and presented by Seattle Folklore Society At Phinney Neighborhood Center! Sharing the stage with three other amazing artists including: Reggie Garrett, Julia Massey, and Lana McMullen.
