MEATBALL HEAD: An Art Gallery Celebrating Over 20 Years of Sailor Moon Aug 16

You've got to be kidding me, how many times am I going to be writing about Sailor Moon? This is the third tribute art show I've written about the blonde pony-tailed heroine and Sailor scouts in the greater LA area this year. We already had two Ninja Turtle shows. MEATBALL HEAD: An Art Gallery Celebrating Over 20 Years of Sailor Moonis taking place in the Meltdown Gallery, sometimes known as the Nerdist theater, sometimes having me question how much a community space for art shows and activities is needed in Hollywood. Curated by Nico Colaleo, he's working on Pig Goat Banana Cricket for Nickelodeon. Over 100 artists will be participating in this new Sailor Moon tribute show taking place Aug 16.

The opening night reception promises to have
Sailor Moon-themed entertainment with photo-ready backdrops, decor and surprises. It's yet to say it's a 21+ event, but free beer and wine will be served for the opening night festivities.
