Joey Garfield's Big Art Show

Logan Hardware
2532 W Fullerton Ave
Chicago, IL 60647 United States

Joey Garfield was one of our first customers. When we first opened, he was eager to tell about an article on underground pinball club for Grand Royal Magazine he wrote as he bought large amounts of budget 45s. Years later we found out all those 45s were going to a series of mixed media collages, some have been hanging in the store for the last few months. Juxtapose Magazine did a Beastie Boys tribute issue that literally made us cry. It was edited by a guy that worked on a couple Beastie’s videos, Joey Garfield. Joey does video professionally and this night is a celebration of some of his work. Come check out new photos, collage and videos/shorts by Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Run the Jewels, At the Drive In, The Cool Kids (with old school footage of Logan Hardware!), Sucklord, Reggie Watts and one of our favorites, a documentary on the history of NYC radio mix shows of the 80s and early 90s.

Editors/DJs Ray Martinez and Jim Zajackowski will be spinning records and blasting tunes at Logan Arcade afterwards – along with Vinny Segretario of Wingtips/Autonomy and maybe a couple more!
