The Belly Up Tavern’s best local bands show of the year is getting artsy.
Wag Halen’s Beach Cities Jam, a sumptuous smorgasbord of rock 'n’ roll, is partnering with the 101 Artists’ Colony to produce an all-night embrace of audio-visual stimulation. Doors open at 7 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. show on Wednesday, Jan. 18.
Painters and sculptors will display their work and stage live creations on the spot. Interactive artists will wander the floor. And fasten your seatbelts: The 2012 Arts Alive banners — the ones that will adorn the Coast Highway this spring in Encinitas — many of them will be unveiled in a special sneak preview.
The entertainment lineup includes The Grass Heat, Wag Halen, Los Beautiful Beasts, Shifter and The Flounders. Many other surprises are expected.
