Standard Goods Featured Artist: Peaches McBiscuit
Join Standard Goods for Capitol Hill Art Walk Thursday May 10th featuring Seattle based pop artist Peaches McBiscuit. His unique style of rendering pop culture personalities in the style of Catholic saints has made him a national sensation. We love his Omakase saint candles at Standard Goods and we can't wait to have his artwork on our walls for the month of May.
We look forward to hosting Cherry Boy for their 3rd live music performance with Standard Goods. And free beer from PBR as always!
