The Tunnel: Featuring Sxip Shirey

Musical Interlude number 2! Music very kindly lent by harmonica aficionado Sxip Shirey, animation and gratuity provided by Cat Gilbert and some badly abused footage of 1950s volcanoes. Result? Eruption of gratuity!

Original Song: http://sxip.bandcamp.com/track/a-young-man-walks-in-brooklyn

Did you miss the gratuity at The International Film Festival in Chicago? Did it catch the 3:39 back to New York?

Well that’s only because gratuity is soon off for a jaunt in Germany at the UMAO Festival. This festival looks like a big ol’ bomb of nerd art meets DJ fantasy complete with sound workshops and a final art battle on the closing night and hell yes….we wish we could be there. However, we are currently in the trenches mixing up a cauldron of madness for a super spectacular night at Surreal Estate this Halloween! Look out for the trailer at the end of the week!

Here’s a sneak peak at UMAO Fest from last year: http://www.uamo.info/cms/index.php?page=video

Check out the full line up here: https://gratuitousart.com/press-event/upcoming-events/

Attempt to curtail your enthusiasm until 7pm! And don’t miss GAF at 2pm tomorrow!
