James Supercave, B3K, Headphone, The Rogue Pilots and Z E E

“James Supercave combine pysch-pop aesthetics with a pop sensibility to create an artsy hybridized sound much like Alt-J or MGMTdz (Kevin Bronson, Buzzbands.LA). With their debut Album, Better Strange, earning multiple DzBest Albumdz awards, sold out shows on both coasts, and opening slots for some of the nationǯs biggest artists, James Supercave have earned the respect and admiration of music fans and critics across the country. In 2014 they released their first single, DzBurndz, which claimed ǮTrack of the Dayǯ from LA tastemaker KCRW. The following year their debut EP, The Afternoon, sparked great praise and opened the door for James Supercave to play major festivals and tour across the west coast. In 2016, James Supercave followed their EP with their debut album, Better Strange. They then hit the road on a national tour, followed by headline slots at local festival staples, and a sold out co-headline west coast tour wrapping up 2017. Now Supercave are primed with fresh material and a new Single, DzSomething To Losedz, coming out April 13th, 2018.”

Sparks Gallery

Exhibition: Richard Becker – Float / A Solo Show

FREE EVENT but RSVP is required via

Opening reception wine sales to benefit California Veterans Legal Task Force. Guests who RSVP on the Sparks Gallery website receive one free drink ticket.

Known for his figurative bronze sculpture and stainless steel monuments, Becker’s new works in “Float” reveal a dramatic shift in style, subject and material choice following the artist’s re-entry into the world of hearing via a cochlear implant after years of near total deafness.

“The artworks in ‘Float’ began emerging a few years ago as sound and music were miraculously returning to my life. I found myself increasingly drawn to lighter, buoyant works and the beauty of water and clouds.” — Richard Becker

Whether creating a small work, a painting, or a monument, Becker strives to make works that inspire. It is the artist’s hope that the works in “Float” bring inspiration to viewers. Becker adds, “As we journey through space and time together as living, breathing, collections of shared stardust, it’s inspiring to reflect on the miracle of our existence and the worlds around us.”


  • Opening Reception: Saturday, August 4 6-9PM
  • Exhibition on view: August 4 – October 7, 2018

Where: 530 Sixth Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101
