In 1910, the first-ever exhibit of post-impressionist art was staged in London, and Virginia Woolf was inspired to observe that on or around that date, “Human character changed.” In August 2010, another first will shape the consciousness of a new generation: “Davis-Kidd will be hosting our first ever Silly Bandz trading event.” But not, one hopes, their last. Silly bands/Bandz, for those not avant-garde enough to have embraced the controversial trend, are slim rubber bands that make fun shapes (dinosaurs and such) in their un-stretched state, but look like Technicolor ramen noodles when worn on the wrist. Naturally, they’ve been banned in some schools. Today’s event will give collectors a chance to trade their duplicate bands for rare, sought-after bands … uh, I think? And Bandz fans can pick up a copy of The Band Book, described as “the silliest, funniest, zaniest book of bands you'll ever read!” Bring the kids.
