Art Hop Collective: Carnage The Executioner @ Blue Opus
May 5 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The goal of The Art-Hop Collective is to show the power of collaboration between art and music, and to immerse – or rather, embed – viewers into the creative experience.

As for Carnage The Executioner, whether he’s rapping, producing, performing, teaching kids to beatbox or working his former job as a youth counselor, it’s clear he was born to do two things: instruct and entertain. Musicians, dancers, DJs, poets and television hosts who have worked with Carnage recognize his dedication to his craft and would confirm that he doesn’t disappoint. Ask emcees about Carnage’s skill level and you’ll find out that the phrase, “he’s your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper” actually fits.

A music fan since childhood, Carnage has filled his memory bank with thousands of references from all genres to draw from. Carnage’s start as a human beat boxer has taken on a life of its own. He now uses technology like looping and effects pedals commonly used by guitarists. He enhances the experience of a live Hip-Hop show by providing his audiences the opportunity to hear original Carnage material, as well as unique improvisations and spot-on recreations of popular songs. Carnage uses this same musical knowledge and technology to create custom, studio human beat box tracks. His audio vision via mouth music can be heard on albums by Hip-Hop heavyweights Aesop Rock and R.A. The Rugged Man.

Carnage is a self-trained songwriter who’s skilled enough to compose a heart-felt story as easily as he can craft an intricate battle rap. Carnage gained national fame from his past guest appearances with Eyedea & Abilities. It’s his own original songs, however, that allow his fans to connect with him the most. Songs like Addict, Save My People and The MTW Story give fans a glimpse into the real-life experiences of Carnage the human being.

Always moving forward, Carnage continues to expand his art and build the Hecatomb crew – a slew of like-minded artists who share his passion to create honest, raw Hip-Hop music. A student and fan in his humble beginnings, Carnage stays true to the culture that both helped to change and save his life.

On this night, The Art-Hop Collective and Carnage The Executioner will come together at the renowned Blue Opus to create a one-of-a-kind experience for all in attendance. Sight, sound, taste, and smell will be delighted. Don’t miss this opportunity for a musical and artistic experience you won’t find anywhere else.

Special food and drink menu will be available for this event.

Drink & Shrink with Stephanie Harvey @ McFleshmans
May 8 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Remember Shrinky Dinks? Well, Stephanie Harvey is far too young to remember them too, of course (way before her time ), but she does love them and has a passion for sharing arts in the community.

During this fun Drink and Shrink Night at McFleshmans, Stephanie will give you some tips and tricks on how to make the coolest, tiniest things to gift or keep for yourself! You will go home with hand outs, at least three completed projects and leftover material to continue creating even after the workshop. You will also enjoy three five ounce pours of McFleshman’s delish beers with your $40 workshop fee, so you can sample.

Do you claim to have no artistic talent? No problem! Stephanie will also provide some royalty free clip art and other fun ways to create cool things to trace and modify! Attendees are also welcome to bring their own drawings, pictures, clip art and other imagery.
