Art Bomb Brigade 'wants to paint every single wall of Akron' - THE DEVIL STRIP

“The University of Akron's Art Bomb Brigade (ABB), co-directed by Marissa McClellan and Elisa Gargarella, is on a mission to beautify Akron, make the city a better place to live, and inspire others — all while teaching students in the Myers School of Art what it’s like to create artwork professionally.” by Allyson Smith Amid the concrete and tall buildings of the city of Akron, pockets of color, design, and beauty can be found.

Stop in and try Old Scout Smooth Ambler - $5.


So the cat's out of the bag... we'll be at both Rabid Fest and Ohio Doomed and Stoned this Summer!

We'll post more details soon enough, but for now, forget all about that and remember to come to Annabell's Bar & Lounge on April 13 for us, Enhailer, SkyAcre, and the almighty Fashion Week. This is gonna be a banger, and you don't want to miss it, trust us. Have we ever lied to you? You know, other than that one time - which totally didn't count?
