Working Class at MOPA

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  The jury is still out on this one, but I’m pretty sure it’s still tough out there for a lot of people.  There’s not much ten dollars can get you these days.  If you’re anything like me and looking for some penny pinching fun, come on down to MOPA tomorrow evening for the premiere of Working Class!

MOPA is partnering with Sezio for the debut of Working Class, a feature length documentary about San Diego and San Francisco artists, Mike Maxwell and Mike Giant. In this film, director Jeffery Durkin presents a loose, modern interpretation of Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities. Structured around Dickens’ themes of country, war, history, politics, religion, and family, Working Class explores the visual imagery of San Diego and San Francisco through the eyes and works of Maxwell and Giant. Both artists will be present at tomorrow’s event. The film also features interviews and music by The Silent Comedy, who will be performing prior to the screening. And as always, Alchemy will be crafting delicious cocktails for your consumption.

Going beyond just having a terrific Thursday night, coming out to support Working Class is a great way to support local arts organizations like MOPA and Sezio. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Sezio, it is an outstanding non-profit organization that provides resources, exposure, and community support to up-and-coming musicians and artists. We truly appreciate their creative collaboration and are consistently amazed by the various events they bring to the San Diego community. Check out their website for upcoming events!    

For all the folks who tl;dr this post, here’s what you need to know:
