You know you’ve been hit with a case of RDQLUS when you start referencing the “Hvy Crwn”, exclaiming “OMA goodNEss”, claiming that you “Earn Your Sleep” or telling someone to “Stay Gleaming.”

A little lost? Head to The New BLK, an Old Market gallery, October 7th for a night of all things Steve Gordon, the designer behind the alias “RDQLUS” and all the memorable mottos referenced above. Gordon’s show, titled “MSSNGR” will include “Original large and small format design work on canvas, multimedia pieces and selections from his influential “Dropshots” series of photography shot lovingly — and completely — on his iPhone,” says the event invite.

This event is not to be missed, especially if you’re a fan of fGordon’s clothing line RDQLUS Goods & Cloth. His his t-shirts, hats and impressive personal sneaker collection will surely appear somewhere in his show. The evening kicks off at 7 p.m. at The New BLK, located at 1213 Jones Street.
