All You Can Drink Beer at D-Structure Tonight!

Sign Up for the Dopest Events Newsletter in the Bay Area

D-Structure has bee doing a lot of dope shit lately that includes music, art, and most importantly, FREE beer.  Tonight is no exception.

Starting at 8pm, the cerveza will be flowing in celebration of Michael Dabo Lopez’s art and installations.  And the best part is that if you RSVP here on Facebook, you get in for FREE!  Otherwise its $5 at the door.  Here is some more about the artist:

The work of Michael 'œDabo' Lopez wants to tell you a story, but it doesn’t want you to hear it. Instead, it wants you to feel it. And so this story can’t be told with mere words or slick images; what it needs is to be told with soul. Being an artist for Michael 'œDabo' Lopez is about birth and creation. His art is a process of bringing his inner mental and emotional landscapes into the world of sight and seeing. For him this movement is a necessary part of his reality, giving a catharsis and release from what is otherwise a purely internal struggle. But he hopes that in the physical place of his art others can experience a transcendent moment too; that others can share if only for a moment in the experience of his vision as well. Making art for him is like standing in front of a mirror. His work is a reflection of his self, his thoughts, and his imagination; which when turned around confronts us with abstractions and diverse meanings. Michael 'œDabo' Lopez feels that his role as an artist is to work out his reflection in that mirror, and then to rotate it and place it in front of you.

    This was an incredibly lame event. They were totally unprepared for the swarms in search of free beer. One keg, one bored woman holding beer hostage for tips. The artists that participated (wasn’t just Lopez) were totally ignored by anyone at D-Structure and the crowd certainly wasn’t there to see the art. My group of 8 went to a nearby bar instead and the half-dozen other people there I talked to also had left D-Structure in disgust. Boo!
