Salon in Murfreesboro This Saturday

No, I'm not talking about some sort of appearance sponsored by the online magazine. A notion that is as improbable as it is tiresome. Salon is a name I could live without, it's so fusty-sounding, but the basic idea is good and compelling - get a bunch of people together to share art, music, or words on a pretty informal, unstructured basis. In the best case, this should provide an alternative to shrinking public space and impoverished commercial and institutional sectors as a way of letting people do what they need to do aesthetically and intellectually.

Frank Baugh, Ryan Lewis, and Jacqueline Meeks are putting together a one-night in-someone's-apartment showing of paintings, drawings, and zines this Saturday. The announcement is here: . The address, if you don't feel like clicking the link, is 1311 Greenland Drive, Apt. D6 in M-boro. I'm particularly glad to see that they say the work will include zines. They provide an important crossover into words, and really into music a lot of times too when they include reviews and interviews. It also brings to mind a specific vibe of pervasive self-expression which is comforting and energizing, the way Halcyon Books felt, which I have missed since the store closed.
