Ricky Blaze: Get on our level...

Got a "HOT TO FUCKING DEATH" line up for tomorrow night's show at the Granada. Flosstradamus, The Cools Kids, Ricky Blaze and them local playboys The Party. Really looking forward to hearing all the artists on the bill, Floss does their thing with style, The Cool Kids ALWAYS put it down, but Ricky Blaze.... Yo. We've been trying to book this dude in Dallas since November's Blaqstarr and Rye Rye show, and truth be told, we really kinda lucked out being able to add him to the bill for tomorrows Granada show. I first heard this dude on BBC's Young Lion show about a year back when he dropped Jolly My Baby and since then the hit's have just kept coming. Dude has BIG TUNES!!! Kinda hard to wrap your head around genre wise, which is part of what makes his music so fresh. Sort of RnB, sort of dance, sort of reggae, electro tinge, old school hip hop... Flossy for sure though.

I'm linking 5 Ricky Blaze certified BANGERS that you're gonna wanna get familiar with before tomorrows little party. You're gonna see some out of town types in the crowd tomorrow and they won't be there for Floss or TCK, trust. Ricky Blaze in Dallas is straight unheard of!!! Check the tunes.

1. RICKY BLAZE - How Mi Look
This is a new new new joint. Hot to death.

2. RICKY BLAZE - Cut Dem Off
This is one people are gonna lose their shit over tomorrow. Shuts down Taxi Fare every wednesday. Shuts it DOWN.

3. RICKY BLAZE - Let It Fall
Unreal. New as hell.

Good one to play for your girl when she starts acting up...

Maddness!!! Intro is shameless, tune is FIRE!!!

And just for kicks... Learn the dance...




Thursday night if you all ready don't know we have a very special treat for Dallas.
COOL KIDS ,FLOSSTRADAMUS, and RICKY BLAZE with THE PARTY are performing...FREEEEE! @THE GRANADA THEATER (3524 greenville ave.)

Tony Bones :: Knee On Lights

The Public Trust Presents...
TONYBONES :: A Solo Exhibition of New Work

Artist's Reception: Saturday, August 09, 2008 (7-9PM)
Sober will be holding it down on the 1's and 2's.
Exhibition runs through Saturday, September 06, 2008

The Public Trust
2919-C Commerce St.
Dallas, TX 75226 // 214.760.7170

For a preview of the work please email and a pdf of images from the exhibition will be sent to you as it becomes available.

About the Artist
The iconic figures of Tonybones have illuminated the dark corners of the urban landscape from Dallas to New York and back for nearly a decade. Over the last several years the artist has transitioned the work from the streets into the gallery. Although no longer in its original context, the work maintains its impact, but with a more refined immediacy. With the paintings the artist is able to explore formal issues and develop the narrative quality of the work. Tonybones' influences are drawn from early childhood drawings, graffiti, hobo art and urban subcultures. The paintings have an exploratory, freewheeling nature about them, where the subjects are often caught up in thought, heartbreak, loss, triumph and the raucous laughter likened to that of a riverboat gambler.

About the Exhibition
This solo exhibition will be the artist's first with The Public Trust. This exhibition will explore the artist work in a variety of media including, painting, neon, wooden cutouts and the first ever Tonybones print editions.
