CAN I KICK IT? / feat Enter the Dragon at DCPA / Recap

Our two days in Denver, Co. conducting CAN I KICK IT? has, unquestionably, been our best trip to date.

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) took more than good care of us before, during, and after both events; the city of Denver, especially downtown, which is where we stayed and conducted our performances, is world class; and the people are amazingly down-to-earth and their interest in new things is undeniable, which ultimately resulted in us achieving two sold out shows.

Thank you to the DCPA for bringing us out, props to everyone who spread the word about our events, and much respect to everyone who attended both nights.  The love is much appreciated.

Barry Bishop The Creative – Exhibition Recap

These are the moments that I live for: culture, creativity, and community.  Not in any order.

And while I very much enjoy what I do creatively to make a living, its events like these that drive me because I’m doing so for the art of (fuck of) it.  I’m doing so because I sincerely like the artist.  And I’m doing so for myself.

This was Barry Bishop’s first show in 10 years and it has been an incredible experience in helping him to realize his ideas in sharing his work and to also have him share his unique history and insights, which have furthered the education of so many.

Congrats to Barry on a successful show.  It has been a pleasure.  Thank you to everyone who attended and thank you to everyone who supported in any form or fashion.

The show will be up until Mon. Dec. 16th and if you would like to schedule a viewing email dcstreetwearexhibition@gmail.com.
