Some Of The Most Important Shows Of The Year



On January 31, our homie, the brilliant graphic designer/art director Keith Tamashiro suffered a brain aneurysm. You may not know his name right off, but you'd recognize his work immediately: Brainfreeze, Product Placement, The Private Press, Welcome To Jamrock, J5, Poets of Rhythm, Stone's Throw, Mia Doi Todd, Herbie Hancock, and hundreds more pieces. He is one half of the famed Soap Design company.

Like most of our favorite musicians and artists, Keith has no health insurance. He remains in the care of UCLA Hospital, and is slowly recovering. But his bills have steadily climbed. So his friends have organized a number of events. Every penny for these events will go towards his medical expenses and rehabilitation.

If you are in LA or the Bay, come through and check out artists like DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist, Lyrics Born, Mia Doi Todd, J5, Dilated, Madlib, MF Doom, Dwight Trible, Garth Trindad, Shortkut, the Beat Junkies, and many more, buy some art, show some love and give to a very important cause.

The LA info is above or here. Visitors to the Mayan show will receive a FREE GIFT BAG at the door filled with a limited edition t-shirt, art book, cds and other goodies. Tickets are available here.

The Art Show and Auction will be held at Transport Gallery on May 24. Bid on amazing works by some of hip-hop's finest artists, photographers, and graphic designers.

Here's the info for the SF show:
