More than 600 yelpers made way to Francisco Studios on Saturday, October 24, 2009, ready to explore the sights, sounds, tastes, and culture of Houston's East Downtown District – otherwise now known as "EaDo."
Not a dull moment to be had, as with each twist and turn the crowd
made through the eight open studios were walls splashed with art from more than a dozen local talented painters, sculptors, photographers and instillation masterminds.
House of Blues resident deejay Wyatt Magnum took over the main stage
and put the festivities into a groove as he spun old skool vinyls,
and DJ Creole, Freddy B, Tunsai and WyldStyl hip hop dance company worked JB
Carrillo's studio. Along with live nude sketching by Johnathan Felton, famous urban artist GONZO247 also entertained palooza partygoers with a live graffiti demonstration on a donated vehicle!
Special thank you to all of our sponsors, including EaDo eateries Calliope's Po-Boy, Huynh and Lucky's Pub for providing the bites and Rain Organics Vodka, Saint Arnold Brewing Company and Monster Energy for keeping the crowd cool.
We also can't forget Aerosol Warfare Gallery & Boutique, EaDo, Houston Electric Cars, Fresh Arts Coalition, Hotel Icon, Houston Dynamo and the Dynamo Girls, Lofts at the Ballpark, Magnum Music Group, and all of the participating artists: Andrew Chapa, Andy Howell, Brian Boyter, char koho, Christian Navarrete, Cyndi Valverde, daniel-kayne, Elisabeth Jackson, GONZO247, JB Carrillo, Jim Olive, Johnathon Felton, Joseph Cohen, Marshall Hinman, Santiago Lee, Tomas Glass
Til next time, SYOY (see you on Yelp) … and in EaDo!
