Double Break, ICE Gallery To Close Doors

Two of our favorite artist-run spaces in town are closing their doors this month, Double Break gallery and shop in Bankers Hill and ICE Gallery in North Park.  We're sad to see them both go, but also praise their effort and their extremely important contribution to San Diego's creative scene.  

Double Break is having a huge sale on all remaining merchandise until December 15th, so swing by and snag a holiday gift for someone special!  ICE Gallery will be closing things down with a solo installation this Friday by Tom Driscoll.  Cruise out and support before these great spots are no longer...

Joshua Krause : Simple Ways

Joshua Krause has been preparing for a diverse solo show, opening this Friday at Subtext Gallery.  Featuring artwork formed from collaged book fragments to experiments with laser cutting, "Simple Ways" sounds like a bit of a misnomer for the show.  Regardless, it will be well worth checking out!  Swing by 2479 Kettner Blvd. on Friday night between 6-10pm for the opening reception.

Dark Dark Dark, Emily Wells @ Luce Loft

Sezio hosted a special Election Night celebration at Luce Loft with one of our favorite bands, Dark Dark Dark.  Ending their US tour in our fair city, it was good to see our Minneapolis friends back on the west coast.  They brought with them some beautiful new songs from their sophomore LP Who Needs Who, and also the lovely Emily Wells to open up the show.  Below are some photos Wes Bruce snapped of the evening, and also an iPhone video of a new, driving track that Emily captivated the room with.  Thanks to our buddy Anthony for the clip!
