Visual Arts - Rally 

by Sheri Boggs


Sometimes you need a little something extra to get you through your day. Something to kick-start your sluggish system, or maybe something to take the edge off. You know what I'm talkin' bout. Something a little pharmaceutical.


And folks, that's where L.A.'s The Big Pill comes in. Returning to the scene of several high-energy shows last summer, the Big Pill headlines this year's Rally in the Alley, which -- if past rallies are any indication -- is sure to be a veritable epicenter of VAT activity.


The Big Pill will be joined by country/folk/rock guitarist Matt Kelly, blues rockers Laffin' Bones and Seattle reggae outfit Little Big Man. This highly fortifying cocktail of sounds can only benefit from the addition of you and your friends, dancing in the parking lot like there's no tomorrow.


No Rally in the Alley is complete without stuff for the kids, and Andrew Baucom at Art by Yourself is happy to oblige. A live puppet show and hands-on activities kick things off in the afternoon, and while you're at it, be sure to stop by the Spike Coffee House and the Brooklyn Deli to bump up your energy levels. As the sun starts tipping toward the horizon, chef Kile Tansy of Center Stage will be whipping up some tasty, free s'ghetti. Catacombs Pub will be augmenting said s'ghetti with the highly popular, always welcome Rally in the Alley beer garden.


All that is a mere preamble, however, to the live music, which comes courtesy of the fine staff at Far West Billiards. While you're dancing, drinking and eating, be sure to check out the art in the alley's adjoining businesses, and if you just can't get enough of the Big Pill, fret not. They'll be at Far West on Saturday night starting at 9:30 pm, with a $3 cover. (Rally in the Alley itself is free.)
