He's Bad by Colin Christian
New York “South Park” fans, you’re going to love what I am about to tell you! The Opera Gallery in New York (located at 115 Spring Street) is celebrating 15 years of “South Park” being on the air. 15 artists have created “South Park”-themed art and as you can see, this is not an exhibit you should miss.

The above piece by Colin Christian of Cartman is made out of fiberglass and is enormous! That’s better than a box of Cheezy Poofs, according2g.

The Andy Monument by Rob Pruitt.
Artist Rob Pruitt is paying tribute to Andy Warhol at the former site of Warhol’s Factory in Manhattan. Entitled “The Andy Monument,” the sculpture will be on display until October 2, 2011 at the corner of 17th and Broadway in New York City. In case you were wondering, the former location for The Factory is now a Petco! Ugh!

Los Angeles! Don’t miss the opportunity to see new works from Los Angeles born artist Camille Rose Garcia. Her latest exhibit “Snow White and the Black Lagoon,” at the Kohn Gallery is a visual treat. Inspired by the Grimm Brothers’ classic story “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves,” Camille Rose Garcia gives the tale a colorful twist in her signature style.
Obviously, it’s impossible to see all the detail in these photos, so I recommend you see these great works of art in person.
“Snow White and the Black Lagoon” by Camile Rose Garcia is now showing at the Michael Kohn Gallery through April 9, 2011. The Kohn Gallery is located at 8071 Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles.

Paul Saulnier of PS I Love You
On March 30, 2011, Canadian garage rock band PS I Love You opened for fellow Canuck Diamond Rings at New York’s Mercury Lounge. Backed with funky beats and furious drumming, shredding guitars and feedback echoed through the crowd as PS I Love You got the crowd revved up for a night of fun and dancing. The band played tracks off their debut album “Meet Me At The Muster Station” and were joined by headliner Diamond Rings on their final song of the night (“Leftovers”). I was enjoying what I heard and my attention kept flipping from watching lead singer Paul Saulnier to drummer Benjamin Nelson, who was not only a fantastic drummer, but quite a hottie!

John O'Regan of Diamond Rings
On March 30, 2011, Canadian indie-pop/synth rocker Diamond Rings played a sold out show at New York’s Mercury Lounge. I think I was sold when John O’Regan (who goes by the stage name Diamond Rings) revealed his T-shirt that said “Stay Fierce.” Diamond Rings is so much taller than I would have expected. He’s about 6 foot, 7 inches tall. During his hour plus set, he danced all over the stage, played keyboards as well as electric guitar. One of the most bizarre concert moments I’ve ever had occurred during the set as a grown man with a sock puppet on his hand was vying for attention in between songs. He was obviously a huge fan of Diamond Rings and he was extremely bitter that when Diamond Rings opened for singer Robyn earlier this year, he had to perform a truncated set (as is customary with opening acts). He kept shouting that he paid $50 to see the show and was upset that certain songs were not performed. Finally, John O’Regan addressed the man and said “did you not feel you got your money’s worth?” The man replied that he did and then John O’Regan said “so then what’s the problem?” It was pretty funny and if looks could kill, the audience would have blown that man away! The Diamond Rings psycho-fan got his wish as the entire “Special Affections” album was played last night. A video of “On Our Own” is coming soon, so stay tuned.
