ART: For their new Echo exhibit, Frey Norris Gallery suggested a painting or sculpture by eight important Surrealists to eight Bay Area artists, asking them to respond or invent a piece around the "resonances between their own interests and the content and ideas in the historical piece," which will be paired together in the gallery. A wide range of objects, including paintings, drawings and mixed media sculptures will be included in the exhibition.

MUSIC: Sugar and Gold know how to get the party started, and keep it going with their funk/disco vibe, Battlehooch rocks a weird and eclectic sound that reminds us a bit of Of Montreal with some Talking Heads mixed in, and the Vows are sexily psychedelic.
