Had the honor of guest hosting one of my very favorite radio programs two weeks ago, Commercial Suicide; an experimental/ ambient show on Austin’s KOOP Radio (91.7 FM) and the longest running experimental music program in the state (10+ years and counting). Sorry for taking so long to get this out but below is the playlist from the show. I will be returning to host Commercial Suicide one more time tomorrow night at 8:30 PM, hope to see you there.

Barry Elkanick – “No Nonsense” at Farewell Books


Tomorrow evening my friend Barry will be celebrating the opening reception for his very first exhibition, “No Nonsense”, in the Farewell Books gallery space. It is free and open to the public; hope to see all of you there.


Saturday, August 2, 2014
Farewell Books
913 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78702
Free & open to the public / 7 – 9 PM



NO NONSENSE is a collection of Barry Elkanick’s recent paintings that explore textural and surface qualities achieved by unconventional methods and use of media. The works represent environmental influence, gender, and the human form.

BARRY ELKANICK is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Houston, TX. Born in 1991 and raised in a rural area outside of Houston, he is a self taught painter and a graphic design undergraduate, Barry works exclusively outdoors drawing inspiration from nature. He has recently started studying painting at the University of Houston. This is Elkanick’s first solo exhibition.”
