Underground has a tradition of being the biggest, loudest, freshest show ArtLoveMagic does every year at South Side On Lamar (1409 S. Lamar, Dallas, TX 75215). In 2012 you can expect no less than 50 live artists, dozens of art forms, and absolutely incredible live performance acts. The show will be for one night only, Saturday, February 11, from 8pm to 12am. A two week long exhibit containing works from artists performing in Underground will be on display prior to the event within the Janette Kennedy Gallery (1/27 – 2/11). Like all ArtLoveMagic events, this experience will be live and interactive. Each artist whose work is in the two week long exhibit will be creating live on February 11th, 2012. Audience members will watch artwork come to life, while musicians, dancers and poets entertain on the stage. Live performances by Spoonded Tribe, Katsük, Keisha Hunter, Ashley Falgout and more. In addition, Underground will also feature the Blue Room once again, a 21+ room where you can see bodies painted, various sensual art, and unique presentations.Entry is $15 at the door.  But you can buy discounted tickets right now at www.artlovemagic.com or at http://underground2012.eventbrite.com (discounted tickets available only through midnight 2/9/12).
   ArtLoveMagic was founded in January of 2007 with the belief that a staggering amount of artistic talent in Dallas was going unrecognized and/or underdeveloped.  We have created more than 100 live experiences, involving over 1000 artists and performers. What generally is missing from gallery shows is so obvious that we usually take that lacking for granted – the creators responsible for the artwork. Thankfully, our artists are always present and creating live, which offers a unique opportunity for audiences to learn, co-create, and for perspective clients to inquire about the creative process.For more information on Underground and the artists/musicians involved, please visit www.artlovemagic.com or http://undergrounddallas.comWe hope to receive your support at this, our most anticipated event of the 2012.Visit our amazing sponsors:

Utopia – A Collaborative Dream

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 4, 2010 by artlovemagic

Haven’t we all dreamed of Utopia?

A place where all humans of all colors, of all cultures and passions come together to move progressively forward?  I say let’s try it on for size.

On Wednesday, October 13th, 2010 we will explore Utopia collaboratively with Seeds Of Success, a local Not For Profit who also strives to educate communities on ways to escape the rat race and indulge your own unique ideals.  They will bring independent vendors who can help answer questions about entrepreneurship and success, while ArtLoveMagic does what we do best – rock the house.

DJ Dean Dillinger rockin' it right.

Several local artists and musicians will be out performing live for your visual/audible pleasures and we even invite you to get creative with us!  Come with your guitars, keyboards, voices and hands and be a part of Utopia – A Collaborative Dream.

"Witching Hour" art by Bianca Elise

This show is unique since it is in Arlington (our first time) and ArtLoveMagic shows are historically all ages.  This one is NOT, so leave the kiddo’s safe at home and come enjoy the night with other 18 and up local badasses.  DJ Dean Dillinger will be spinning beats throughout the night, and one of our veteran artists – Bianca Elise will be bringing out her risqué paintings that she sometimes has to leave at home due to the family friendly nature of our other events.

Get ready to experience Utopia.

How does my band get booked?

Posted in music with tags , , , , , , , on February 8, 2010 by artlovemagic

article by: Deb Driscoll

photo’s by: Sherry Smith, Eddie Walker and Rachel Deniger

Hey all.  Deb here.

ArtLoveMagic is really cool, and thusly we are adding new Artists, Musicians, and ‘guys who lift heavy things’ seemingly all the time to our roster.  I looked back through our amazing blog and found this cool one on how to go from one of our Artists to being a Producer of a show.  I was at a loss, however when I couldn’t find a single entry on how to get involved in our collective as a musician.  If only there was someone in the organization who was the head of their music department to blame.  Oh Wait…

So here goes.  I was asked today, and on frequent occasion how ArtLoveMagic handles our bookings.  I hope my response, sans any inevitable ‘weird Deborah speak’ (thanks to my editor) will help any musicians with a similar question:

New Musician,

Good to know you.  As far as our booking process, well it’s different than most.  We are more about the spirit of the entertainer/artist/creative person than even necessarily the talent.  I know that may seem a little backwards, but we are a community and one that relies heavily on Love.  We aren’t tied to any religions or weird cultish things, but we are are artists that truly appreciate our culture, and our scene, and we want to work to save it – not separately.  If your band is full of cool people who want a meaningful experience then you let’s talk.  If you are seeking bookings only for individual gain and monetary responses, this is not the group for you.  Check out our radio online and see if you guys would feel good about participating with these artists.  If you would, send me some music and come to one of our Open Mic’s to play live.

Almost all musicians come through ArtLoveMagic through playing our Open Mic’s or events.  I strongly prefer to see you play our open mic’s before booking you for an event because it gives me a real sense of your style.  Most gig’s you’ll find at bars and such pay crap and give you no audience.  We give you a supportive stage to play from with an amazing audience, and offer you a real way to better yourself as a creative force in the world.

If you’re wondering why this response is so lengthy, it’s because there’s a lot involved in our collective and with the overwhelming flux of musicians that want to play our events I need to make sure you all get where we’re coming from so that there is no confusion from the jump.  We are having an awesome time, come hang out and talk with me more at an artlovemagic show.

Peace,
Deb Driscoll

I hope you’ve all found this helpful, and if you have any further questions please email me directly at deb@artlovemagic.com.
