CULVER’S CENTER — After weeks of anticipation, Kev and the
boys were thrilled to finally have the chance to get plastered in a non-basement
Thursday night saw this year’s second installation of the
tri-annual Foreigner Concert Experience at the freshly erected Culver’s Center
in Gary, Indiana.
Kev and the boys (Trey, Troy, Nick and TJ) attend at least
two of the three Foreigner concerts at Gary’s Culver’s Center per year,
according to a dresser drawer full of ticket stubs.
Each year, the gentlemen commemorate their trip with two celebratory torso garments. The first are custom-made with white t-shirts and airbrush paint, while the second are traditionally merchandise items purchased at the concert itself.
This year, Foreigner hired a 34-year-old wearing a floppy hat to design the sweatshirts, and Kev and the boys simply could not resist.
“I figured, we leave as soon as they start playing ‘Dirty
White Boy,’ there will be zero line at the merch stand,” said Kev, leader of

KENILWORTH — Nobody was expecting transcendence. Nobody’s
expectations were high at all, really.
And yet, somehow, Andrew let us all down anyway.
Andrew Dimby told his friends long before his debut exhibition that his works would
be sure to “call back some of the basic fundamentals of brushstroke literature.”
Although no one in the friend group bothered to question
this, it didn’t take long for them to realize what they had done once they
arrived at his house.
“I was really, really hoping all of his stuff was going to
end up being abstract,” said Rachel Termin, Andrew’s friend. “When he told me
most of the works were ‘contemplative reissues of modernist classics,’ I knew
we were all fucked.”
According to Andrew’s personal website, there was no food or
drink being served at the showing — which took place in his parents’ massive
basement — and no outside snacks were allowed in.
“I really just find it so much harder to fully absorb and
appreciate the full breadth of my work while under the influence of anything,
be it food or drink,” said Andrew, who bought a scarf specifically for tonight.
