Art Space Oddity

If the spirit of Ziggy Stardust were dead, it would be reincarnated as the interplanetary glam-fab superstar Travulous. Word is, he’s just arrived on the scene from a world populated with David Bowie-styled androgynous types, but already he’s sprinkling his charm all over DIY art space the Bubble. Lucky for us, he’s just in time for ArtServe’s "Red Eye," the celebration of the eclectic and unconventional arts that make our scene just a bit more interesting and bizarre. This year, the Bubble will host an afterparty for "Red Eye" called “Thee Itty Bitty Blazer Gala,” hosted by Travulous. The showcase will include music by Dooms de Pop, Scott Putesky, Radar vs. Wolf, the Green Mantles, Bad Ass, and Travulous & Friends. But Travulous’ real talents should ultimately materialize during the event’s fashion review, in which local designers will compete for the title of Red Eye 2010 Fashion Designer of the Year. Judges include City Link fashion writer Joanie Cox, Ambiente Magazine’s Armando Diaz Jr., and Marilyn Manson cofounder and Kill Miss Pretty guitarist Scott Putesky (who will also play; see above). As always, the gallery will cover its walls with works by local artists. Friday’s event will feature art by Blair Hess, Erin O’Dea Cook, Rachel DeJohn, Skot Olsen, and more.

Dress to make an impression Friday. The gala begins at 8 p.m. at the Bubble (810 NE Fourth Ave., Fort Lauderdale). Admission costs $10. Call 954-562-3804, or visit
