Double up on the cultural coolness this Saturday night at Eye Level Art with the opening of 'Good Morning Spider,' works by Brian Bustos with special musical performance by Chris Thomas.

Here's what the artist Brian Bustos had to say about the upcoming show:

"Good Morning Spider" is a title taken from a Sparklehorse album. Mark Linkous, the sole member of Sparklehorse passed away last year at a young age. This show is partly a tribute to him and his music. Music that has been very important in my life and gotten me through some troubled times. The show and the work is also a meditation on finding balance between living in the modern world and the natural world. I am stricken with terror sometimes when I try to grasp the technological world around me, it being so impersonal and fast paced, yet I know it must be embraced. I am sometimes fearful that people will not know what the pages of a book feels like, how raw wood smells, or how it is to simply be outside. These paintings and drawings are about being present in my own world and not running to hide in the woods forever.

The show will run from 7 to 11 p.m. at Eye Level Art's 103 Spring Street gallery.
