Celebrate photography, beer, and live music in one fell swoop down at Service HQ! Founded in Savannah by five up-and-coming photographers, Aint-Bad Magazine comes out twice a year and is filled conversation-spurring photographic works from emerging photographers.
Their latest volume, SELF-IE, explores the private gone public and offers studies in performance, composure, and desirability. Featured artists include Pete Rogers, Iiu Susiraja, Nigel Grimmer, Amani Willett, Emma Gruner, Christopher Manning, Ginx Hudgins, Juno Calypso, Bunny Yeager, Margeaux Walter, Marco Castelli, Caleb Cole, Ari Gabel, Thomas Bruce, Guanyu Xu, Hannah Cooper McCauley, Cory Rice, Matthew Morocco, Amiko Li, and Emma Uwejom.
Grab a copy for yourself while the Aint-Bad team cooks up delicious Southern cookout fare. Obscura Photoworks will offer a free photo booth and a GIFbooth, where you can create your own moving selfie. Back issues of Aint-Bad and monographs, as well as limited edition tote bags, will be available for purchase.
Plus, three Savannah bands will keep you moving all night long: the dark and dancey Twisty Cats, up-and-comers Breakers (think the poppiness and throwback edge of The Strokes and the driving broodiness of Interpol with a nod to Joy Division), and local garage-fuzz heroes Wet Socks.
The entry fee grants you a 36-ounce beer, food, and a free tour of Service Brewery. A portion of proceeds will go toward the Sons of the American Legion Post 135.
