Anyone reading this blog for any length of time knows that I'm a fan of local renaissance man Specs One, (aka. Specs Wizard, Mic Mulligan, Capstan Media, the Green Lover, etc.) Specs is a rapper and hip-hop producer of great renown, a cartoonist of no small talent, and a visual artist with a unique sense of design, humor, and inter-galactic perspective. A new show of Specs' visual art opens this Thursday, August 12, from 5 to 11pm. At Throwbacks NW with DJ sets from 100 Proof and Swervewon. Free of charge.
