Still need more convincing? Here's what The Bohemian has to say about it:
Every year since, the WFAL has thrown a show at the same house, and this Saturday's fourth annual event might be the most swinging yet. In addition to art, there'll be hip-hop and soul DJs, $2 pizza slices, a live graffiti canvas hosted by Jake Spruce, a piƱata filled with small liquor bottles, an art raffle, birthday cake and the release of the sixth issue of Muster, the WFAL's literary zine. "As much as we're really trying to step up our caliber and amount of artwork," Gould says, "we're also trying to make it an event. I'm really into the idea of the old-time variety show."
