On Saturday, June 13, at 8:00 p.m., pancake batter will be sizzling and beer froth will be flowing at one of the largest pop-up underground art shows in the country, Pancakes & Booze, takes place in Philadelphia at the Underground Arts.
The underground art show was founded in 2009 by Tom Kirlin in a rented warehouse space in Culver City, California. It started off as friends gathered in a photo studio and transformed into the largest underground art show in the U.S. that serves up pancakes alongside DJs, live visual art, and music. The show currently travels to LA, New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Denver, Toronto, Seattle, Washington DC, Nashville, Portland, Vancouver, Houston, Miami, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Dallas, Austin, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, San Diego, Phoenix and most importantly Philadelphia.
For only $5, guests can see anywhere from 50 to 150 local artists on display, live music, live canvas and body painting performances, and best of all FREE all you can eat pancakes. There are no pre-sale tickets. All tickets are sold at the door on the night of the event.
Artists can submit their artwork by filling out the shows online submission form located on their site at www.pancakesandbooze.com. If accepted, there is a $15 per piece hanging fee to display the work. There is a strict 3′ x 3′ max size limit for each piece due to the size of the wall panels used to display the work.
