On April 8, Sacramento lost one of its most beloved artists and musicians, Daniel Osterhoff, better known to many as DJ Whores. Dan was an amazing friend to many, a loving father to a daughter and an extremely talented and creative guy. He was a true gem, and he is greatly missed. In honor of their fallen brother, a huge group of local artists are throwing a rad art show and benefit event on Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017, at 2627 J St., home to Leave Your Mark Sac and the brand new John Dozier Signs & Gallery. The “That’s The Homie” party, as it’s being branded, will feature artwork for sale by Austin McManus, Anthony Padilla, Andy Garcia, Franceska Gamez, Shaun Burner, Jenn Ponci, John Horton, S.V. Williams, Milly Devlin and many others. There will also be limited run T-shirts and other merch for sale, with all proceeds going to Osterhoff’s daughter. The event will run from 6 to 9 p.m. and all ages are welcome. For more information, check out @johndoziersigns or @leaveyourmarksac on Instagram.
