AutoBody opening wrap-up, plus the amazing Mick Barr and Mariachi Las Alteñas

4 Oct 2011

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out to the opening of AutoBody on Friday, 30 September 2011: the artists, performers, community members, and everyone who helped make it happen (you can see the list of everyone who contributed here…it takes a village, often at the last minute).

As part of the opening celebration, we had Mick Barr perform in the courtyard during the reception, followed by the incredible Mariachi Las Alteñas at the community dinner. Here are clips from each performance: both will give you shivers. So good. A big thank you to both Mick and the Mariachis.

AutoBody runs through 29 January 2012. See more photos from the opening. And check out the latest in our we-can’t-believe-how-great-they-are musician portrait series, courtesy of Alex Marks: Mick Barr and Mariachi Las Alteñas.
