Scene Stealers | October 2022


Gasoline Lollipops at the Aggie Theater

“I was conditioned against racism and sexism from the time I was very small,” said Clay Rose, frontman of the Gasoline Lollipops in an interview with YS back in 2019. “The other kids were all sporting Brooks and Dunn t-shirts, along with their confederate flag belt buckles and bumper stickers, and so I kind of associated those things together and I didn’t wanna be a part of that scene. My sister turned me on to the Violent Femmes and TOOL and things like that, but the punk rock thing — West coast punk rock —I loved it from the first time I heard it… It sounded like freedom.” That mindset seeps into the local alt. country-meets-cow-punk act that has become a Colorado darling over the years. Catch them live at the Aggie Theatre, Oct. 21 at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $20, visit AggieTheater.com for more information.

Marcella Marsella: Aqueous Bodies at Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art

The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art consistently offers the most compelling and fascinating visual arts exhibits, and right now you can still catch Marcella Marsella: Aqueous Bodies through Nov. 13. The exhibition features a variety of mediums, including fabric art, paint and paper collage, and explores trauma and healing. The artist’s hope is “that the contrast of the lighter colors with darker colors will make the journey through the (exhibition) relaxing and easy, yet exciting.” Marcella Marsella lives in Boulder but also makes her home in Pennsylvania and the U.S. Virgin Islands, which inspires a diversity of perspectives that show up in her work.
