Jack has been creating work nonstop for more than 15 years—not only his own work, but also floats, theatrical sets, party props and backdrops. This exhibition is a culmination of that flurry of creative hard work. "Master Slacker" is on view October 3-28, 2019. Opening Reception: October 3, 6-8pm.

Be here as Gainseville-based Tom Petty tribute band Heavy Petty makes their much-anticipated debut at The Green Parrot with shows at 5:30, 10 p.m and midnite. on Tuesday, October 22nd. Heavy Petty grew up in the culture, music, and community of Tom Petty’s hometown, Gainesville, FL, cultivated in the same rock and roll scene where Tom Petty grew up. Known for their energy, showmanship, authenticity, and their own Gainesville-grown rock and roll style, they were dubbed the “Hometown Tribute Band” by friends and family of Tom Petty, and have been carrying on Tom Petty’s music legacy and entertaining large audiences for ten years. Heavy Petty plays a diverse catalog of Tom Petty songs, ranging from callouts like “American Girl,” to b-side songs like “Something Good Coming.” They also play songs from any of Tom Petty’s solo or group projects like The Traveling Wilburys and Mudcrutch, with songs like “Handle With Care,” and “Scare Easy.” Working alongside the Petty family, Heavy Petty curates The Tom Petty Birthday Bash, a multi-day annual music festival held on Tom Petty’s birthday (October 20) in Gainesville, FL honoring the music and legacy of Tom Petty. Audiences state consitently of Heavy Petty’s concert experience, “they sound like the real thing,” and “they play them like they wrote them,” but the best statement came from the man himself, Tom Petty. Playfully responding to Heavy Petty playing his music in his hometown, Tom Petty said “as long as they don’t sound better than we do.” 601 Whitehead Street 305-294-6133

1ST ANNUAL FANTASY FEST AIR SEX CHAMPIONSHIPS
As seen on HBO, MTV, Bad Girls Club, America's Got Talent, GQ Magazine It’s a magical blend of coordination, showmanship, humor, and interactive storytelling. It’s a comedy show that brings people together in a respectfully dirty, unpredictably ridiculous, and oddly touching celebration of sexual freedom and expression. It’s neon-lit gyrating silhouettes. It’s organized confusion. It’s voyeurism 2.0. It’s the funniest thing you ever saw that night at that place with those people. This is Air Sex and for the first time in it's 11 year history, it's coming to Fantasy Fest on Wednesday October 23rd to First Flight! Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Each Air Sex show combines the pageantry and prestige of professional sports with the excitement and creativity of a first-rate talent competition. Think Air Guitar, but instead of pretending to play boring old musical instruments, Air Sex participants have jaw-dropping sexual encounters with an invisible partner (or partners!) using nothing more than the art of pelvic storytelling and pure imagination. Beyond that, it’s a show you’ll have to experience yourself to believe. From city to city, “airsexuals” of all ages, races, body types, and gender identifications are welcome to sign up and become part of the bizarre spectacle. Throughout every show, a panel of judges provides hilarious feedback after each performance, ensuring that even the worst Air Sex routine makes for a solidly entertaining time.
