The Art of Chad Smith from Red Hot Chili Peppers

The Art of Chad Smith

Chad Smith from Red Hot Chili Peppers will go on the road to plug his artwork. The Art of Chad Smith opens January 4th at the Russell Collection Fine Art in Austin, Texas and will be shown in galleries in seven other cities during the year. Chad will make appearances at each of the galleries presenting the pieces, which are photographs of him playing drums with lighted, fluorescent sticks to create abstract images.

Mumford and Sons will release a movie about their trip to Senegal. The band says the “film and some music to go with it” will feature Baaba Maal, who was featured on the Johannesburg EP. They say Maggie Rogers was “along for the ride.” It’ll be out in the spring.

Who’s up for a road trip? Foo Fighters, Beck, The Head and the Heart, Brittany Howard and Leon Bridges will all play at Pharrell Williams’ weeklong Something in the Water festival, which is April 20th through 26th in Virginia Beach.
