Art! Music! Tomorrow! Magical bar/nook Speckled and Drake will be presenting Don't Ask Me About My Failed Business, a retrospective of visual art made by former Seattle artist/musician Spencer Moody (Speckled and Drake lives in the space formerly occupied by The Anne Bonny, Moody's beloved junk shop that closed in 2009). The show will include Moody's work from over the last ten years, as well as a body of new work being shown for the first time.

The show also marks the release of a split 7" featuring "Yoked Out" by Moody and "Spirit Curtain" by Corey J Brewer—the limited pressing comes with an original poster by Cali Dewitt.

7 - 11 p.m., short set by Cory J Brewer at 10 pm// 1355 E Olive

Moody currently works as a coffee roaster, visual artist, poet, and musician and lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Germaine "Coco" Howard and their dog Frank. In 2012 Moody and Howard were invited to Washington State University to show visual art and lecture as members of WSU's visiting artist program. After fronting the Murder City Devils, Moody collaborated with Brewer in Triumph of Lethergy Skinned Alive to Death.

Not to be missed!

You may also remember Spencer Moody from his "What we do is for all the beautiful faggots!" rant at Sasquatch in 2009.

Ha ha! I remember him for all the editorial blow-jobs the Stranger has given him over the years.

I was at a show upstairs at the Anne Bonney once and had a really sudden low blood sugar moment (dehydrated, hot, uncomfortable clothes, food poisoning...who knows...fortunately a one-time incident a long time ago) and I just knew I had to sit down, close my eyes, and have some water and a snack. Just when I could have been embarrassed to be at a show (alone) and have a mini-meltdown in front of all these rockers, who came to the rescue?? Coco...wow...nicest lady ever. She just "mommed out" for awhile, hung with me, got me water, found me a chair, chatted me up while I rested, made sure I was going to get home safely (I was fine after the water and sitting down). I will never forget it! Spencer, too. Great people.
