Shake the Blues

Apr 26, 2012 at 4:00 am
If you’re looking for an opportunity to hear great music, experience fine art and show off your finely tuned dance moves for an evening, then the Jumbo Juke Joint Festival may be just the ticket. Tonight from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m, the Koken Art Factory (2500 Ohio Avenue) hosts folk art reflecting on emotions related to geography, religion and occupation. The $10 cover charge not only grants you admission to view the art, but it also promises to please the other senses -- a music showcase full of blues-infused tunes dominates the ear while the vendors' lovely handmade wares tempt the eye and the wallet. Entries admitted to the show will be judged by other local artists. This party is for adults of the eighteen and older variety only, so leave the kids at home.
