the LA-based Bloody Gums Collective is taking over Superchief LA next weekend for their killer group exhibition LA IS TRYING TO KILL ME. The exhibition, which also describes almost every moment I've spent in LA, is a collection of paintings, photos, and illustrations from some of our favorite artists that zero-in on the lifestyle of excess in the City of Angels. In their own words: "To live in excess can manifest a whole range of vices that can kill you. The things we do every day can kill us. This show acts as a reminder that it can always be worse. Life is short, might as well enjoy it..." word.
