Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose  - "Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose" marks the 10th anniversary of the popular art magazine Hi-Fructose. Highlighted are 51 of the most remarkable contemporary artists featured between its pages. This one-of-a-kind exhibition brings together artists whose work is not usually exhibited together. Each one is a master of their media and among the best in their field. They use their art as a tool to convey their vision, rather than as the source of their investigations. Their different locations, perspectives and approaches to art-making lends each artist a unique voice and vision. This exhibition offers the opportunity to view their work beyond the flat world of paper and digital screens. Connect one-on-one with some of the most the significant art of our time and the cultural landscape in which it was created.

Dave Alvin & Phil Alvin with the Guilty Ones  - Grammy award-winner Dave Alvin and brother Phil Alvin hadn't recorded together since 1986, when Dave left The Blasters. That all changed after Phil, who still fronts the legendary band, suffered a life-threatening illness in 2012. The brothers reunited to pay tribute to a blues legend with whom they had been fascinated since childhood, Big Bill Broonzy, and the end result was "Common Ground," a 2014 album of Broonzy's music, and an ensuing tour. They followed that in 2016 with "Lost Time," which paid homage to several artists, including The Everly Brothers, Leadbelly, James Brown and, most especially, Big Joe Turner. The brothers were mentored by Turner as teenagers and eventually backed him live, and the R&B/rock'n'roll legend watched over them the rest of his life. The Alvins honored him by recording four of his songs. They'll be backed by Dave's band, The Guilty Ones.
