It was hard not to feel the love at the opening of “Other Scenes” at Roberts & Tilton Saturday night, namely because the gallery was throbbing with the belly-warming aural assault of No Age, who played a live set amidst the art-goers. The Aaron Rose-curated show featured the work of Raymond Pettibon, Ryan McGinley and Rita Ackermann, among others, and was attended by more than a few stars of the documentary Beautiful Losers, currently in the final stages of post production.

Rose’s ever-present hat bobbed among Mike Mills and web designer-of-the-moment Miranda July, Ed and Deanna Templeton, Craig Stecyk, and Geoff McFetridge with a little one in tow. A “Scrubby”-looking Zach Braff poked his head in for a bit, and a sighting of a cast member from the “L Word” also generated some buzz, although we never did quite find out which one it was.

The crowds thinned a bit as the stack of empty Coors Banquet Beers grew taller, and No Age began to pack up for a second show at the Troubadour, but we did have the chance to compliment Randy Randall on his coonskin hat, which, as the attached tag proved, was an authentic Frontierland purchase.
