Shepard Fairey's Subliminal Projects gallery in Los Angeles will showcase a posthumous art exhibition by Dee Dee Ramone to mark the 10th anniversary of his death, the Los Angeles Times reports. Dee Dee Ramone: A Memorial Exhibition will run from October 26th through November 17th and will feature 19 canvases, five paintings on wood and one mixed-media work on card stock. Some of the works are collaborations between the Ramones bassist and artist-musician Paul Kostabi and between the musician and his widow, Barbara Zampini. None of the canvases will be for sale.

Ramone, born Douglas Glenn Colvin, died on June 5th, 2002. Los Angeles' La Luz De Jesus Gallery held a gallery tribute for Ramone in 2010 which featured some of Ramone's artwork.

The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
