Just across from the Arts Incubator on the north side of the arts district near the corner of 18th and Baltimore.

This was a fun opening with a party atmosphere and those GRRLS dancing for the crowd. If you weren't there view a few pictures and enjoy the party anyway. In the back room John Lujan had a cool exhibit of prints. The crowd was heaviest from about 7pm to about 9pm and began to taper off after that. By 10pm it was kind of balanced between those who came for the show and those who came for the dance music Howard Carney was spinning.

Nicole English, belly dancer, entertains the crowd.

A little Goth Hula from the GRRLS, Michelle in front with Nicole and Gayle in back. Hey, you can't get much better than this. Metalized Hula!

These kids can't quite believe what they are seeing - Goth Hula? Really? How old?

The bar area in the rear middle of the room.
