Another UnFair comes to an end. Sure, the weather acted like a little bitch on Friday and Saturday, but god damn it, Sunday was fucking perfect. Thanks to everyone who came out to spend some time with us over the weekend. We always appreciate your support. After all the profanity, frustration and tears... hard work pays off and it makes sense why we keep doing this. Thank so much for partying with us. Let's do it again next year.
You know what's really unfair... fucking cancer.

Kentucky's bootlegging heritage is the focus and inspiration of the collection of work that makes up Vinnie Kochert's Moonshine art show.

Over the weekend, in celebration of Friday the 13, our friends at Liberty Tattoo & Art Parlor featured 13 original drawing by local bike mechanic and artist, Jimmy Flaherty. The show's opening on Friday invited guests to come checkout the artwork, drink a couple beers and to get Jimmy's artwork tattooed on their bodies... permanently. We got a chance to talk to Jimmy at the show and wanted to share our conversation with you here.
