Back to Back weekends of raging and shredding!

Friday July 27th

Never in this age of political correctness and pussy-footing around stepping on the toes of someone else's idealistic bullshit has there been 2 events scheduled over consecutive weekends of such a ballsy caliber.
First, on Friday July 27th, 2012, FTS Gallery brings you "Midsummer Night Scream," an evening dedicated to worshipping the sun gods of summer while partaking in pagan activities such as consuming libations of liquid splendor and gnoshing on delectables of the highest and mightiest quality while listening and dancing and loving and partying.  Audible divinity for the evening will be provided by the following talented sinners:

Terri Lynn and Friends--
singer songwriter, vocalist extraordinaire

Special solo performance by Jesse Newman--
violin shredder/sonic engineering madman

Oh, Cassius--

This band is the culmination of Ms. Meredith DiMenna of St. Bernadette and Mr. John Torres.

Feathered Bones--

Feathered Bones is John Torres' full band.  Come witness the auditory slaughter as Feathered Bones shred faces at the gallery.  Sonic womps and acutely precise guitar symmetry= evening lap spills...  that is what you'll get with these fellas.  

"John Tores' main band. Mr. Torres grew up listening to artists like Cat Stevens, Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, Jim Croche, and The Beatles, and was later influenced by Sonic Youth, Nirvana, Elliott Smith, and Neutral Milk Hotel. He began songwriting while at Carleton College in Northfield, MN, and continued writing in the years after college. He has spent the last 3 years crafting a sound that is entirely his own. His music has been described as soulful, honest, playful, and tormented."

the very next weekend...

Saturday August 4th

FTS Gallery brings you "Painted Sleds," an art show demonstrating the skate deck as a canvas.  The opening reception will feature several talented artists lending their creativity to the gallery by displaying their customized decks on the walls of FTS.  The evening will also include vending from World Weapon Clothing (Brooklyn, NYC) and Bridgeport's finest, Rampage Skate Company.  

FTS is also using this occasion as a meet and greet, where all of our friends can welcome the newest member of FTS to the family.  Mr. Alex Harris is a tattooer from Black Rock, CT who is currently tattooing in New York.  It was during his guest spot at FTS a few weeks ago when we witnessed an individual with high energy and positivity, qualities which are privy to the Forest To Shore culture.  Within the next several weeks we will be booking appointments for Alex every Tuesday at our shop.  Soon, he will become a permanent artist at the gallery, so be sure to raise a toast to this fine artist when you see him at the show.
