Victoria Haven is so awesome that she's having two shows to kick off 2011, one in Seattle and one in Portland. Her Seattle opening tonight is also the release party for an awesome book about her, full of images and writings that cross between her public precision (she's been known as the tidiest of abstractionists) and her nerd/punk mind, as publisher Matthew Stadler concisely puts it. Haven has always been worth seeing, but lately she's started to become unmissable, as if she holds certain secrets to living right here in this place in this time, with mountains overhead and cassette tapes not far behind.
