The Beep Beep Gallery is small – a realtor would call it ‘cozy’, which is only one of many, many reasons why you should never trust a realtor – and yet Jason Kofke and Chris Chambers have managed to contain nearly the whole of mainstream Eighties culture within its walls.

Looks, wearing Wayfarers and a yellow polka-dot shirt with suspenders. We would be at this show right now if we were in Atlanta. (FULL ARTICLE: Felicia Feaster, Creative Loafing Atlanta)
