Fly Event: Open Canvas Painting at Tryst Coffeehouse

“Open Canvas” is DC’s first consistent live freestyle art show. Every month, local painters freestyle paint images to canvas live in front of hundreds of people. Nothing is planned, every piece is improvised. For the exhibit, rather than framing the images, the artists mount them on isles, encouraging viewers to get close to experience the work. There is also an opportunity for the crowd to play an active role in creating a piece live as well.

While artists paint, Dj Underdog blends and eclectic mix of rare grooves. Rather than a conventional set with ipods, cd's or a play list, DJ Underdog fuses everything from Bjork to Backyard Band in a sultry mix . His mix of "records only", expresses a sort of devoted appreciation for the faded era in music that rang loud before the 21st century. Open Canvas is everything and nothing at once. Be the canvas. Be.
