There’s a closing art show at Milepost 5 tonight. Two of my friends and neighbors, Leviticus Appleton and Maxwell, are hosting a closing party for their dual show “Alone Together”.

In the video below, Leviticus talks about his art, and goes on to explain how MP5 is available to serve community. Every organization and every business has its offerings and opportunities, and in the four months I’ve lived in Montavilla I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface.


For after the show, or any weekend, there’s karaoke options at both Chinese Village (520 SE 82nd Ave.) and Candlelight Lounge (7334 NE Glisan St.).

Wow, this fella playing at Duff’s Garage sounds awesome: Rudy “Tutti” Grayzell (born in Saspamco, Texas on June 8, 1933) is a Rockabilly musician. He was born Rudolph Paiz Jimenez, and took his stage-name from his German great-grandmother. He first formed “The Buckles”, which became “Texas Kool Kats” and a popular local group. He also had a daily radio show in 1957. These groups were country-oriented, but he moved toward a more rockabilly sound with “Let’s Get Wild” or “Duck Tail.” In the 1950s he toured with Elvis Presley. He is an inductee of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. 2530 NE 82nd doors 7 pm, show @ 9 pm * ??
