Launch party for Katrina McHugh / Pop Charts, with live music by Laura Weinbach of Foxtails Brigade
The Bindery hosts an evening of art, design and music as we celebrate the launch of Pop Charts: 100 Iconic Song Lyrics Visualized a collection of art prints by local artist and author Katrina McHugh, paired with a live music performance by Laura Weinbach of Foxtails Brigade. Please join us!

Test your musical knowledge with this fun compilation, filled with 100 beautifully designed infographics, that pays homage to the songs we cant get out of our heads -- inspired by lyrics from artists such as Madonna, Fleetwood Mac, Paul Simon, Prince, TLC, Bob Dylan, Weezer, and more.

Throughout our lives, a vast catalog of random popular song lyrics swirls around in our collective subconscious, a hodgepodge language of inconsistent metaphors and cultural references tying us together. In Pop Charts: 100 Iconic Song Lyrics Visualized, artist Katrina McHugh presents a visual exploration of 100 songs we cant get out of our heads -- from David Bowies Space Oddity to the Beastie Boys Sabotage and Beyoncés Run the World. Playful and poetic, the lyrics are dissected and diagrammed in a way that allows us to see old favorites in a new light. This book is for those who enjoy testing their obscure lyric knowledge. Song name and artist can be found on the back of each page.

Katrina McHugh is a local artist, creative director and co-founder of the female-led branding and strategy studio, Flight Design Co. She graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara where she majored in Creative Studies with an emphasis in Book Arts. She lives and works in San Francisco where she consistently tries to push herself out of her comfort zone (most recently with very humble attempts at salsa dancing). She wore an eye-patch as a child and enjoys moderate length walks on Ocean Beach with her tiny terrier, Francine.

The Hollywood Hills-born daughter of a horror filmmaker and sister of a cult comedian, Laura Weinbach grew up in a household that embraced eccentricity. Her next-door neighbors were circus contortionists with emus and fang-toothed monkeys as pets and her childhood activities included snail hunting and spying on celebrity neighbors like Slash, Ice-T, and Larry from Perfect Strangers. Front-girl for Foxtails Brigade, a local Bay Area band, she is known for her trademark voice, classical guitar intricacies, and lyrical imagery. Laura will be performing solo at this event.
