october is our season. clearly.
our project began two years ago october, pretty much today (oct 16th). through all this anniversary excitement we’re going to celebrate this entire month with art gatherings and exhibitions FOR our family and supporters. our first exhibition was artcvlt XIII
this wednesday, we’re hosting a music and animation showcase, we’ll be screening FLCL (fooly cooly) -another favorite animation that inspired the core of this project and our artwork. in middle school, while being at in-school-suspension, drawing versions of the FLCL comic was a vivid memory. staying up late to catch the series on adultswim was a pastime as well.
“FLCL is an original video animation (OVA) anime series written by Yōji Enokido, directed by Kazuya Tsurumaki and produced by the FLCL Production Committee, which consisted of Gainax, Production I.G, and King Records. FLCL follows Naota Nandaba, a twelve-year-old boy living in the fictional Japanese suburb of Mabase, and his interactions with Haruko Haruhara, who arrives in the quiet suburb, drawn by the industrial town houses and the Medical Mechanica building.”[x]
the second half of the night will feature musical performances from our family of the arts. (scroll down for line up or visit our artcvlt tab)

to start this off, there are a few points of last night’s event that we would like to bring to light. we are starting an arts revolution by hosting certain types of art gatherings and art shows under the name #ARTCVLT. this is just one aspect of this project as well. our art shows are meant to bring people of the same vibe and aesthetic under one roof-to mix -and have a night brought to you from the depths of our hive mind. we will provide the atmosphere and go live with you all, we just ask that you stay connected with any and all gatherings that take place and support the artists participating. click here to subscribe.
thank you for feeling this. seriously we had a mosh pit, circle pit,and each emcee was carrying heat -just great energy the entire night. there were Yu-Gi-Oh battles taking place with AKIRA streaming in the background. we couldn’t have felt more at home.
oh man- the list of thank you’s for the contributing creators and our friends and family who attended is so vast. we will start by sharing our affection for the performing artists: Proper Channels, hellboy.hellboy, Austin Rapbaum, Neji Vibez, Dapper Dan, & Gools. together we are a society of artists dabbling in the craft of creation. the visual artists and brands: Gloomy Nation, Equoni, & Cvlt Aesthetics– thanks for being present sharing your vision with us.
thank you Progression for curating this deal together with Hi-Ho Lounge. that was really groovy and i hope more people collaborate with you all in the future.
the crowd. thank you for sharing your energy with us tonight and making it what it was. there were so many new faces and people we would have loved to become connected with and have gotten to know. sadly there are limitations to man power for these gatherings. that’s all changing soon though.
