First-Friday Hit List

• We’re the biggest fans and the sharpest critics of the paper we assemble every week. But one of our favorite things about The Pitch is the serious work of art director Zach Trover, who brings the sensibility of a trained illustrator to the challenge of publishing 52 issues of an alternative newsweekly every year. Trover is among the Kansas City illustrators and designers in the Hustle 2 Group Show, a collaborative effort at the Third Eye Event Space (2024 Main, 816-931-7160). The other featured artists are no slouches. Sike Style, Jeremy Madl, Nathan Fox, Donald “Scribe” Ross, and Brian “Bullets” Horton round out the evening’s visual extravaganza. The show runs from 6 to 10 p.m.

Fri., May 7, 6-10 p.m., 2010
