My upcoming art show is getting some media attention, but I think the coolest is from the Cut-Foot Hotline. It’s very old school in all the best ways. Imagine a telephone with a rotary dial. When calling (310) CUT-FOOT, you will get a daily recording of what is happening on the Eastside of Los Angeles: mostly bands, concerts and some art openings. The performance is stellar. Artist Anthony Ausgang plays it up as the fast talking, smooth gliding announcer. His words make beautiful low brow poetry. With great dedication, Ausgang has been maintaining the hotline for years. I can’t wait to call on Friday the 13th.
