[This is the flyer for Extra Extra‘s First Friday event on May 7th that I CAN NOT imagine Andrea and I will not be at, however, as Andrea’s about to verify, Fishtown’s Extra Extra gallery is ON way way more than just First Fridays.]

I’m going to be honest with you, the internet, I didn’t make it to Extra Extra‘s April First Friday opening. I know, I know, I’m a liar and a fake, but I’m only human!

I tried to make it up by going to last Sunday’s show, featuring Reading Rainbow, Weekends, Hollywood, and Winks. I’m not going to pretend to be a music critic, so I’ll spare you my recap of the performances. I can say that I’m excited that this art and performance venue calls my neighborhood home. These guys are not only dedicated to filling their space with quality art and music, they are excited about what they are doing, and it shows.

Between openings, events, and the bookstore (open Fri though Mon, 12-4pm), it is difficult to slow them down long enough to invite them for a beer. They are a busy group of gentlemen, but definitely the group to watch.

TTLY, Andrea
