I had the great pleasure to meet Teresa Nittolo, who is the present-day owner of The Original Firehouse, the root of the Firehouse in The Firehouse Kustom Rockart Company. I am happy to announce that I am having an art show at The Original Firehouse, the very place where Ron Donovan and I got our artistic start. This is a very rare opportunity to visit the place where The Firehouse began – a return to The Roots.

Bands have been added! We’ll rock out to Burnt House and Hogwind

The Original Firehouse, 1648 Pacific Avenue, San Francisco

Thursday, March 8, 2012, 6pm until late.

I will be exhibiting rare and formerly unavailable posters and prints for this very special evening!

Teresa Nittolo plans to continue this artistic tradition, as quoted in The Bold Italic (February 17, 2012), she “plans to make Firehouse a multifaceted space that would include a café with outdoor seating, a small but well-curated library, a market-like area of rotating local vendors and artisans, a massive event space upstairs, and a rooftop garden. They are staring down the home stretch and they need their community’s support to get them across the finish line. Their dream is big and has come with even bigger challenges, but it’s wholly committed to bringing people together to create an inspiring story and space.”

Unfortunately, Firehouse 8 has gone into foreclosure (THEY ONLY HAVE UNTIL MARCH 8th) and Teresa and Gavin need help to hold onto it and bring their big dreams into reality. Angel investors take note. If this building goes into foreclosure, it will most certainly never be an art space again. Teresa is so very close! She needs your help! Help keep the Firehouse 8 Project alive and heading towards success!! Donate funds to the IndieGoGo campaign, or if you can offer your services or support in any other way please email Teresa at teresa@firehouse-8.com.

The Firehouse located at 1648 Pacific Avenue is a landmark building built in 1917; I had the privilege to make silkscreened rock poster there from 1997-2001. I came to love this building. This lovely place was a great source of inspiration.   This crucial jump-start to my artistic career gave me the firm foundation for my recent achievements, exhibiting at the SFMOMA last year, representation at Varnish Fine Art Gallery, inclusion in SCOPE Miami / Art Basel last year, my large exhibition at the San Francisco Public Library and inclusion in their Art, Music and History Archive, and inclusion of my posters in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

MIODI Memories – Milan June 9, 2010

On July 20, 2010, in Art Events, by squirt

Marie Xeme filmed this really cool video of the Miodi Festival in Milan, Italy , where Firehouse made an exposition with Malleus, Steuso and Kabuto.

The show was hot hot hot with Ufomammut, Lento, Amen Ra and Gandhi’s Gunn. The show was amazing fun!

Jerom from Geneva (in the band Knut and a great poster designer) surprised me – he’s in the film for a second with Ron. And also for a second you can see Marco Teatro talking with me – he’s the graffiti painter – he’s the amazingly cool artist that invited us for some of Firehouse’s first big shows in Italy. Marco Guasco and Ciccia showed up, as did Stefano Calori – Stefano helped me more than I can even mention, when I made my Milan studio at Centro Sociale Leoncavallo – and we rocked out.

Ufomammut played their new album “Eve” in it’s entirety. What a great night!
