In February 2014 a mural challenge was submitted to Mulligan's Pub by Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) to create something original and fresh for the local Eastown watering hole. (Mulligan's is the number seven account in the nation for PBR.)
But Mulligan's design submission, created by two local artists, Tubes (Joe Parsaca) and Norteaa (Nick Nortier), sat on the desk for nine whole months before finally getting the green light.
According to the artists, this new mural – a true collaborative labor of love – took three months ago to execute, and on Friday night you are invited to come out and see their design in an art opening unlike any other.
As to the meaning behind this fantastical and richly imaginative design, Norteaa says, "One person would throw out an idea and the other would expand upon it and respond with an even more ridiculous idea until we came up with what we did, which is a collaboration of silly concepts and fun characters."
Performing at this celebration will be Assorted Anonymous
, Dante Cope
, Rosewood 2055
, Lady Ace Boogie
, Razz Na$-T, Rich Gannon with DJ TUFF (Jonny Kemp) and Choppy Blades on the 1s and 2s.
The night will be featured later as a part of the artists' behind-the-scenes video look-back at the whole project. This video is courtesy of Andy Miller of Orange Cap Pictures. A very special and limited edition T-shirt designed by Tubes and Norteaa will be available on this night.
