In honor of Academy Award Nomination....Banksy takes L.A.

The British street artist Banksy is back in Los Angeles, just in time to create hype around his Oscar-nominated documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop. This past week, Hollywood has been abuzz with daily reports of new Banksy-claimed street art pieces—at least seven since we last checked.
The work pictured above—titled "Livin' the Dream"—was created on a traffic-choked corner of Sunset Boulevard, just steps from the Sunset Strip. Using a billboard promoting partying in Las Vegas as its canvas, the piece features Vegasified renditions of Disney's favorite couple: Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

Ryan Harvey Live!

 Baltimore, Maryland's Ryan Harvey is a musician, writer, activist, organizer and social change artist. This Thursday February 3rd the beautiful Oasis Botanical Sanctuary in Yucaipa will host one of his SoCal tour stops. Ryan's truth and conscience filled acoustic folk rock style speaks volumes of the world we live in. Come enjoy an evening of thought provoking inspiration! In other stops along this West Coast swing of his tour, he'll be taking the stage with members of Stiff Little Fingers as well as Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello. Local rockers The Drum Thieves and Revolution Groove DJ's are also on the bill. We apologize for the short notice, but when Revolution calls it is our duty! We are honored to have Ryan hang with us and we hope you join us! Peace.
