A month in the life of STUNTBOY (aka: Erik Foss) is like a year in the life of a normal human, and that's not necessarily a good thing. Between prowling art shows, running his gallery Fuse, and bar Lit, and generally dodging a lot of naked flesh, our boy seems to always have his hands full.

We need to give it up to Supertouch ally JUSTIN GIARLA and his infamous WHITE WALLS GALLERY in dirty old SF for putting on a fantastic show of new work by brothers from different mothers ALBERT REYES & IAN JOHNSON. Working in hybrid styles that fuse elements of outsider, folk, street, and prison art (with a healthy dose of Teen Angels vibe thrown in for good measure) both artists work in unique yet highly complementary figurative styles to create fantastic, accessible work that's still ridiculously affordable.

When seminal goth rocker IAN CURTIS committed suicide in 1980, mere weeks before the commercial release of the hit "Love Will Tear Us Apart," he left his JOY DIVISION bandmates in disarray and very little to speak of in terms of a visual record of his life and times. Coming hot on the tail of the recent theatrical account of Curtis' life "Control" by Anton Crobijn, "JOY DIVISION," a new documentary film about the band and its enigmatic singer by director Grant Gee seeks to set their record straight through interviews and what little footage of the group exists, stretching from 1977Ã¢â‚¬â€1980. We caught an advance screening of it this week and rest assured, it's well worth the trip to the theater on February 16 when it hits theaters...
