Fabricate, Northside’s newest gallery (and boutique and supply store), keeps the momentum going with its third exhibit since opening in November. Their latest art offering, A Shot in the Dark, is a photographic survey of Rock musicians and shows (local and non) by area photographer Scott Beseler. According to the press release, Beseler says, “My photographs are a thanks to the sound. Cincinnati was once known as a music town and my photography is evidence that the tradition is still alive and well.” Calling the images “stills that show motion and sound, tears and beers, sweat, blood, spit, alcohol, smoke and mirrors, tattoos, friends and fools,” his subjects include the likes of locals The Heartless Bastards, The Lions Rampant, The Sundresses and many others.
The opening reception starts at 7 p.m. at Fabricate with potable beverages, hors d’oeuvres and a special performance by The Cut in the Hill Gang (frequently photographed by Beseler) at 10:15 p.m. After Fabricate, head to Mayday for an afterparty with 11 bands including The Cincinnati Suds, The Chocolate Horse, The Jellyhearts, Wonky Tonk and others who have been photographed by Beseler. The opening reception runs from 7-11 p.m. at Fabricate.
