Over the Weekend: Art of Can, Afterburner Party, Rich’s and Astros
Red Bull Art of Can at the Galleria
Taurine freaks created works of art far removed from those wooden guys with the Budweiser can torsos of the ‘70s, and Bob Ruggiero went to the opening festivities and took some pics.

Black Rock City set up shop in a Houston warehouse on Saturday night, and Bill Olive tagged along for the glow-in-the-dark fun.
