I was lucky enough to get the new Nike FuelBand SE recently. I’m not getting any younger and it’s hard to incorporate exercise into my driving-heavy LA lifestyle. I daydream about kayaking, cycling, hiking, and jogging, but it rarely happens. I spoke to some friends, did some research, and decided to take the FuelBand SE plunge.
I couldn’t make it to the recent Jay Howell opening at Slow Culture gallery in Highland Park, on account of being on the opposite side of the Pacific and all. Luckily, The Hundreds were on hand to document the shenanigans. It’s only fitting when you consider the exhibition showcased art from the Jay Howell x The Hundreds capsule collection, and the gear from said collection was also on hand. Word on the street is, this was one of Slow Culture’s best openings yet. Onward and upward, gents!
Last Sunday evening I was lucky enough to score tickets to the Damien Marley / Stephen Marley / Ghetto Youths Crew concert at Hollywood Bowl. It was pretty mind-blowing to see Bob Marley’s sons performing together and throwing in the occasional Tuff Gong cover. Posted some photos over on the Selector blog if you’re interested.
The Imprint Culture Lab website has a Photo Recap from our recent creative conference, which was held in the historic Edison Theatre in downtown Long Beach. The post was put together by our colleague Martin Wong, and it features great photography by Ben Clark who shot everything on the day of. If you’re down with the Zuckerberg, you can also head to the Imprint Facebook page to see the entire photo album from the event.
The Museum of Art & History in Lancaster, CA is opening what looks to be an impressive group exhibition today, called Signs and Symbols: From Street Art to High Art. Contributors include Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Barry McGee, Heretic, Keith Haring, Cryptik, David P. Flores, and Robbie Conal. Cryptik was invited to do a site specific installation, and will be unveiling the two-story mural later today.
The good people at Giant Robot are opening a new group exhibition called Seasonal Changes at their GR2 gallery space on Sawtelle tomorrow. The contributing artists are Hellen Jo, Jen Corace, Deth P. Sun, and Gosha Levochkin. Doors open at 6:30pm.
2012 was a pretty great year for me on several levels. Through Imprint I got to work pretty closely with Martin Wong of Giant Robot fame. He was recently invited to put together a show at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach, and it’s going down this evening. The lineup features three of Martin’s favorite bands: Sandy Yang, Bongoloidz, and It’s Casual. $8. 21+. Should be good. More info at the link up top.
