Art party tonight at Amped

Pop artist Josh Jones has been running the Injunuity art show as part of his nomadic Black Market Goods series for four years. Coinciding with Gathering of Nations, tonight’s event is only $3 and includes several bands and DJs, free food, live bodypainting and the work of about a dozen Native and non-Native artists. It takes place at Amped Performance Center (415 Central NW) at 8 p.m. and should go into the wee hours.

Black Market Goods resurfaces for Gathering of Nations with eclectic bash

The flyer for Josh Jones' Injunuity art show depicts a head-dressed Native American cartoon character gleefully gassing an undersized hotrod beneath the tagline "Start your Injuns!" A throwback to the comically bizarre work of Ed Roth and R. Crumb, the illustration is indicative of the unhinged spirit of the event Jones has been assembling for four years during Gathering of Nations.
