Art: Black Metal Fast Food Fight!

This just goes to show that burgers can bring everyone together (and where is the Portland metal/burger scene these days anyhow?)

Last weekend in Baltimore at the Lo-Fi Social Club there was a 2 day art show of tattoo artists, comic book illustrators, photographers, painters, and assorted other media, all coming together for some Black Metal [Wikipedia link] theme action known as Black Metal Fast Food Fight! aka BMFFF!. Oh, and of course about 40 bands, and a wrestler named "The Hamburglaress".

The City Paper (Baltimores weekly) had this to say:

...What began as a quirky idea of having black-metal clad wrestlers tumble through Happy Meals has become a focal point for a discussion of ugly American excess...

...Fast food's undeniable grotesqueness and black metal's ghoulishness give new absurd qualities to terror....
