Agitprop Reading & Bar Pink After Party Revisited – March 5, 2011

Earlier this year, on March 5th, the Agitprop space in San Diego was the location for Greg Gerding’s Book Release Party for his two latest books, Piss Artist and The Idiot Parade. There was a reading, book signing, and then an after party at Bar Pink with rock band The Stereotypes (celebrating the release for their latest record called Soundtrack).

We realize it’s a little late, but since we weren’t a website yet to help promote, we wanted to at least revisit the evening’s events through pictures and send out some acknowledgments.

First of all, a huge THANK YOU goes to The Latent Print for hosting the night. Please visit their website, like their FB page, and get a taste for the amazing promotional campaign they ran leading up to the event here. They’re doing great things for San Diego artists and they deserve your support. Special thanks to Camille Tallon, she did an amazing job organizing everything and lending her talents. Also, Sophia Pang and Chris Maroulakos. There were many others at The Latent Print we didn’t even know about, thank you too.

Next, we would like to thank the venues, Agitprop and Bar Pink. These two venues and their proprietors continue to bring amazing talent to their stages and are also deserving of your support. Without them, the art and music community in San Diego would severely suffer. To keep up with the latest events at these venues, please visit Agitprop’s website and Bar Pink’s website and like their FB Pages as well (Agitprop | Bar Pink).

Last, but not least, thanks to The Stereotypes for playing a really rocking After Party. If you think you don’t know them, you do, their music can be heard almost everywhere. Visit their website and buy their records, they’re amazing. And like their FB page too to keep up on the latest news.

Here are some photos from the evening:
