PREVIEW: FSTVL SZN

For some time Maria Jose Govea (The Supermaniak) has been one of the foremost concert photographers.  She continues to surpise and inspire with her incredible work and contagious positivity.  She's recently started a Skillshare course to help photographers work in tough conditions, and if that's not enough, her work is being featured in a new show.  FSTVL SZN is brought to you by Nuvango, and it brings the work of the Supermaniak to life in a big way.  The photos will be on display from July 13th to September 3rd but the opening party will be too good to miss.

David Matisse of Keys and Krates will be curating and performing the music for the evening.  It's a perfect fit, to have such a unique company and two brilliant artists together for an unforgettable night.  Tickets are available here, and they're free!  See you July 13th!
