AJB Productions, an independent art company based on the East End, has organized a “Grunge Pop” art show for Saturday, August 16. The event will start with an art gallery opening at 7 p.m., followed by a live show at 8 p.m. Guests will sit in a 360 degree art installation, seeing and hearing the new Grunge Pop sound and art experience.
Grunge Pop is considered to be a lifestyle by its creator Adam Baranello, founder of AJB Productions, which he defines as an independent artistic expression of music, movement and art.
“We believe that art should not be placed into square holes with genres defining what it is we do. We believe whole heartedly that it is a new time of multimedia art, and we are open to expanding peoples’ minds and pushing the envelope on how, where and why art should and could be displayed,” Baranello states on his AJB website, adambaranello.com.
Baranello, a local East Ender and multi-media artist, has self-funded and self-produced all of his work to date under his AJB Productions label. His sixth and most recent album Grunge Pop was released this summer.
Each year, Baranello curates an annual AJB art show, incorporating music, dance and art. This year’s event, showcasing Grunge Pop, will be held on Saturday, August 16 at the HBTS Art Space (213 Butter Lane, Unit J) in Bridgehampton. Tickets are $5 at door, but admission is free if you wear one of Baranello’s AJB T-shirts to the event. RSVP on Facebook here.

Of course, Baranello’s audio recordings don’t show the complete scope of his music. All of his compositions are accompanied by dance choreography from the A&G Dance Company during live shows.
