Flyer on the Wall: Beyer Redux

Outsider comic artist Mark Beyer originally created this art for a show at The Kosmos in August 2011. He was published in every issue of RAW Magazine during the publication’s 11-year run and contributed album and merch artwork for both John Zorn and Naked City. Gregg Araki loosely based his cult classic The Doom Generation on Beyer’s “Amy and Jordan” comic series. DJ Caterwaul recycles this art to hype a Friday night Low Life Happy Hour at Blackbird Buvette in this week’s Flyer on the Wall.

Happy hour with King Louie

Crazed New Orleans garage rock musician King Louie will be performing this evening at the Blackbird Buvette. In lieu of describing his act, here’s a profane lo-fi video that sums it up. The show lasts from 6 to 9 p.m., during which time draft Abitas (Luzianna beer) will be on special for $2. Karaoke follows. Geaux Monday.

Restaurant Review

One Up Elevated Lounge

A view to kill and food to fill

You’ve probably noticed the structure that houses One Up Elevated Lounge, located Downtown on Central and Third Street. It’s the building leaning ominously over the street, looking ready to fall on its face. This is appropriate, because everything about One Up seems designed to inebriate. In addition to the exhaustive list of beer, wine and specialty drinks at One Up, many of the tapas come in wine-based sauces. Others are accompanied by shot glasses of booze meant to complement the dish. And the “Recessionista Fridays” happy hour menu (5 to 8 p.m.) includes $3 well drinks and Coronas, $4 draft beers, and a free taco bar.
