The Uncool Movement Presents: Goodbye Erick Uncool (Going Away Show)

The Sandbox, 2406 Leavenworth St.

8pm-1am, $5

Nephew to internationally recognized surreal multi-media artist Ekundayo (Dayo), Erick “Uncool” has become known in his own right via his graffiti-inspired expressionist paintings and mixed media work and his high-energy, inclusive arts events. The LA native, just 17 years of age, took Omaha by storm and is now going home to take on the West coast. He bids farewell in his typical big style with this party featuring live art by himself along with artists Gerard Pefung, Eagle Salazar, Kyle Adkisson and more. Live music from Newdoom, Dirty Diamonds, Helix Troy & Op2mus aka Marcy Yates, the Midtown Marauders and Dojorok Hord as well.
