As Bowery Boogie enters its sixth year of existence (oh yeah… did we forget to mention our anniversary?), we wanted to find a way to leave our mark on the physical realm of the Lower East Side in addition to this whole internet/cyberspace thing we do.

A huge chunk of what we cover here is street art, so it seemed fitting to help add a new piece to the neighborhood. Enter thirty-year graff vet, Just (aka World Famous) and Deadly Dragon Sound and welcome to our first real world art collaboration.

While a crowd of tourists gathered across the street to watch Keira Knightley and Adam Levine film Can a Song Save Your Life, neighbors (including one who admitted the fumes reminded her of her glue-sniffing days) and even real estate brokers came to watch Just hook up the gate of 102-A Forsyth, home of the Reggae record shop Deadly Dragon Sound (check out the piece we posted on them).

So there you have it. We had a blast and hope that this is the first in a long series of future art collaborations. If you or your friends happen to have a location in need of art or are skilled with a can of paint, get in touch.
