The bad boys at Rockstar sent word of their latest and greatest: "a traveling group art show that features all sides of the art world, including but not limited to: painting, music, video, screen printing, drawing, wheat pasting, clothing, photography & more." So, just art and fashion and music, brought to you courtesy of Rockstar Games? Of course that's not it, there's also going to be "a fast-paced and action packed tournament courtesy of Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis."

The "installation" winds its way across the country, hitting hot spots like Columbus and Louisville, ultimately ending in The Town That Loved E3, Los Angeles. A notable omission: hipster-haven and Rockstar's 'hood, New York City. No bother here, I'll hit up the Philly show and embarrass the Joystiq name with my sorry Table Tennis skills ... I'm not even color-blind.


New York City, NY (July 31st, 2006) - A.D.D. and Rockstar Games present Soft Serve, a traveling art installation that will kick off August 1st at Trafik Tradeshow in Miami and conclude at Agenda Tradeshow in San Diego on September 10th.

Soft Serve was created as a traveling group art show that features all sides of the art world, including but not limited to: painting, music, video, screen printing, drawing, wheat pasting, clothing, photography & more, with musical guests from Dim Mak and Hydrahead Records supplying the soundtrack for this one-of-a-kind tour.

In addition to the fine artists, the tour will feature a fast-paced and action packed tournament courtesy of 'Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis.'
