RAW was AWESOME. The first word that comes to mind, “crazy”, but you know… in a good way. So, the next three words that come to mind… “I loved it!” Hey, take a selection of creatives from the local art scene and drop them in a venue like the Act Nightclub at Palazzo and it’s gonna be a party!

Discovery is all about bringing art, fashion, music, hair & makeup, performance art and models together for a great time and memorable event and this was no exception.

The three of us; Kevin Mahoney, pinstripe artist Gary Jenson and me, got there just a few minutes before Tiegen Kosiak (pronounced “tee-gun cozy-ak”) took stage with her powerful erotic poetry performance. As she was laying down her lines I thought to myself… she’s a great writer. I’ll look forward to maybe sharing more about her and her well thought words later. In the meantime, visit her here: TiegenKosiak.com

I’m a huge fan of beautiful and exiting body art, especially in a great environment like this. Live music. Beautiful panted ladies and a fantastic venue.

It’s all in the details. The ACT is truly an amazing venue. Detail are everywhere and more than you would imagine is authentic here; real wood with real history, reborn to a new life in Las Vegas.

Great crowd too. There is so much fantastic energy at these events. Vegas has a very creative emerging art scene.

The music talent for this event was amazing. JoLeigh Tracy sings a soulful tune. Discover her here: RawArtists.org/joleigh

From the balcony… catching some fresh air outside and it’s a great view of Treasure Island.
