“What’s an Art Fight you ask? Featured in the pages of Wired, The Washington Post, and selected as a Hidden Gem by The Washingtonian, Super Art Fight pits two (or more) artists in a unique form of creative combat. Equal parts live drawing event, pro-wrestling and improv comedy, this over-the-top performance is not one to be missed. No two shows are alike! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll definitely have a good time.
The evening will be wrapped with a “Kapitol Kaiju” theme – given that the weekend features the cinematic return of a rather big lizard in movie theaters, Super Art Fight’s Black Cat Mainstage Debut will showcase some of the rosters biggest monsters…and biggest personalities. Event attendees will also be able to take photos in a fun Photo Booth, to remember the night for years to come.
Artists featured on the May 17th Super Art Fight card include Super Art Fight Champion Stompadon (a surreal dinosaur from beyond!), Krod (a crazed creature of unknown origin), the mild-mannered ape known as MeKonga, a lonely luchadore looking for love in El Russo Rojo, and the fan-favorite fashonista Baron Von Sexyful. All bouts are hosted by Super Art Fight co-hosts and commentators, Marty Day and Ross Nover, with live DJing by The Megadrives, and a live music set from Big Country Express.
Super Art Fight’s live event at the Black Cat is on Saturday, May 17th with doors at 9pm, with the show to start at 10pm. Tickets are just $15, and currently available at Ticketfly.com. The Black Cat is located at 1811 14th St NW, Washington, DC 20009, and can be found online at www.BlackCatDC.com.”
