David Narvaez, aka. Pablo D, has been a force in Seattle hip hop since way back in the day. Pablo was an early member of DJ 'Nasty' Nes Rodriguez's Emerald City Boys, and as a b-boy in the 1980's represented Seattle in street battles and national competitions. Not quite as limber as he used to be, Narvaez has turned his talents to photography, remaking himself as the premier chronicler of Seattle's hip hop scene. His good eye and impressive CV gets him backstage and on the floor at shows ranging from local heroes like Specs Wizard to superstars like Antipop Consortium.

Stargazer, Studio Narvaez's new solo show, opens Saturday December 5th at Vermillion on Capitol Hill. In addition to 20-odd years of Studio Narvaez photographs, the evening also promises performances from Capstan Media, Fresh Chopped Beats, Tulsi, DJ Able, Specs Wizard and doubtless many others. At Vermillion, 1508 11th Ave, beginning at 6:00 pm.
