Portland, OR and Los Angeles based trio Sun Foot create barely amplified, feel-good vibes on electric guitar and bass nicely intertwining with analog and digital percussion. At live gigs, they deliver spare, honest jams filled with friendly humor to appreciative audiences. Join Sun Foot on the San Diego leg of a California tour supporting their new LP, Songs in the Key of R, B & C, on Awesome Vistas/Teenage Teardrops. Recent appearances include a Quiet Fruit Party in the Los Feliz Hills and legendary venue The Smell in downtown LA; Breeze Block Gallery in Portland, OR; and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Oh – did you know that one time they even played on a barge at Art Basel, Switzerland? Sun Foot members are Ron Burns (IS and Amen, again Amen), Brian Mumford (IS, Collectivo and Dragging an Ox through Water), and Awesome Vistas record label founder and Box of Books, Vol. IV contributor Chris Johanson (IS, Deepthroats and Tina, Age 13).

 

Tonight is also the closing party for the fifth Double Break exhibition, Double Breaks. Co-curated by artists Jay Howell and Louis M. Schmidt, Double Breaks brings together 30 artists working in nearly as many styles. The show features a slew of fantastic artists, including Box of Books, Vol. IV contributor Christopher Kardambikis, 80’s skateboarding legend Neil Blender, iconic comics artist Bill Griffith (creator of Zippy the Pinhead), plus widely exhibited artists like Thomas Campbell, Mel Kadel and Travis Millard.
