Downtown Nightlife for the Artistically D.I.Y. Inclined
Video interview by Reviewer Rob
Promoter Jon Block has begun a new night at Onyx in San Diego’s Gaslamp District every second Saturday. In it various artists are featured doing live performances of their individual media in the two-level nightclub’s large and plush basement space. Last weekend at the premier night there was a caricaturist painting canvases of volunteers from the crowd, an airbrush artist spraying designs of people’s bodies, a painter working a large canvas, a jewelry designer showcasing her recycled-themed jewelry, and two bands providing live entertainment. Upstairs there was a DJ and packed dance floor.
