Eric Robel’s COLOR OF NOISE is an exceptional look at the integrity of the American underground starting in the late 80′s through the mid 90′s, specifically targeting forerunners of the grunge movement, the collision of punk rock and printmaking, and beyond. Followed by a Q&A with the director.

Before the show, see the latest installment in HAZE XXL’s (Tom Hazelmyer) ongoing exploration of art intersecting music. The exhibition will touch on 20+ years of creating groundbreaking art for his seminal indie label AMPHETAMINE REPTILE RECORDS, showcasing Hazelmyer’s hand-carved and hand-printed fine art linocuts, often found on hand-made, ultra-small edition art records that have people traveling from around the world to attend shows in order to get their hands on a copy.
