The latest show to go up at Art on A, the gallery run by East Village punk/metal promoters Wendigo Productions, features artwork created by members of NYC hardcore band Yuppicide, who’ve been on the LES scene for some 20+ years. Step inside and you’ll find original flyer sketches for shows at ABC No Rio, tour posters, album covers, and drawings and paintings with names like “Barfing Cat” and “Robot’s Lament” — all created by band members Steve Karp, Joe Keefe and Jesse KFW Jones.
