‘Fabbyloso Unicorn Art Show’
While 2017 will undoubtedly be remembered as a grim, tragic and consistently surreal slump for an increasing number of reasons, pop culture historians may one day look back on it as the Year of the Unicorn. While it’s doubtful these magical beasts collectively reared their multi-colored heads to thoughtfully lift our spirits, it would be remiss not to recognize such fleeting contributions as unicorn-inspired bagels and macarons, unicorn makeup tutorials, unicorn T-shirts and headbands, body glitter promoted by some as “unicorn snot,” and Starbucks’ rainbow-swirled Unicorn Frappucino (a high-calorie concoction blended with mango syrup and “pink powder”). Although California transplant and longtime Southtown fixture Robert Tatum’s not typically one to jump aboard trendy bandwagons, it somehow comes as no big surprise that he and his extensive stall of cohorts are weighing in on “unicorn fever.” In addition to creative, irreverent and offbeat interpretations by more than 50 artists (not to mention a solo exhibition of retro-poppy works by Northern California artist Tony Speirs in neighboring Showdown Gallery), Tatum’s “Fabbyloso Unicorn Art Show” promises live music by The Swishbucklers and Pocket FishRmen, beats by DJ Epsr and a Unicorn Costume Contest with prizes (including gift cards for shops and eateries in the Blue Star Arts Complex) in three categories: Sexiest Costume (inclusive of all genders), Most Creative and Dumbest Costume. $5 (free before 7pm), 6-11pm, Brick at Blue Star, 108 Blue Star, (210) 858-2361, facebook.com/tatumoriginalschoicegoods. — Bryan Rindfuss
