Odd Future hosted its first ever OWFGKTA Carnival in association with Incase as part of the final stop of the Camp Flog Gnaw tour in Los Angeles.
There were games, rides, prizes and, of course, performances by Tyler, Hodgy, Left, Domo, Mike G, Earl, The Internet, Trash Talk as well as special surprise guests.
This past Friday THIS los angeles hosted the opening night for Stacks, the new solo exhibit from artist Erin Garcia. For the occasion we worked with Garcia and THIS gallery co-owner Justin Van Hoy to create 100 limited-edition, custom cut & colored totes.
Delighted to say all were descended upon within five minutes of the drop. Thanks again to everyone who came out to the opening, Erin Garcia is truly deserving of your support. Extra special thanks to THIS los angeles for making this venerable east side art hang always rewarding and fun. Your time and collective talents are much appreciated.
For the third year in a row, this past Thursday we again sponsored the Dublab Creative Cultivation fundraiser event at the JF Chen ‘C Project’ showroom in Los Angeles, CA.
Thanks again to everyone who came out to support the station, snatch a few cases for iPhone 4s, shoot the breeze and elegantly slouch to the somnambulant sounds of Julia Holter and Cut Chemist. Enjoy the photos.
Last week’s episode of Picture Perfect gave us an eye-opening look at the illegal trade of exotic animals. (You may have also seen the story on CNN.com, which posted the video.) We are pleased to be able to feature a selection of photographer Patrick Brown’s striking images, which help to illustrate and shed light on this global contraband industry.
Brown’s decade-long project will culminate with the publication of Trading to Extinction later this year. The book is being crowd-funded through Emphas.is, a platform for photo journalists to connect with their audiences. There are just 10 days left to fund to this important project, so we encourage you to learn more about how you can contribute.
Through a unique synthesis of punk and folk, soul and hardcore, traditional Irish
music and off-the-cuff improvisation, Ted Leo writes seamless pop songs that are pleasing to the sugar-craving ear and the intellectually curious mind.
Ted recently visited Room 205 to perform inside of an ever-evolving set conceived by director Jason Farrell and set designer Tamarra Younis.
The Soft Moon is a San Francisco-based neo-post-punk band influenced by early Bay Area avant-gardists such as Chrome, Units and Minimal Man.
Their cataclysmic delivery makes listeners contemplate the deeper aspects of the primal self through weeping guitar leads, cutting bass lines, haunting vocals, icy synths and motorik beats.
Mix in the mind-bending visuals of band member Ron Robinson and we have one hell of a Room 205 episode.
For his Room 205 episode, Daedelus wanted to re-imagine our space as a Victorian-era séance. So, with a bit of help from director Michael Reich and set designer Tamarra Younis, that’s exactly what he did.
While on a recent break from heavy touring Avi Buffalo was kind enough to blaze through three songs in Room 205. With director Otto Arsenault (Matt & Kim’s "Lessons Learned") helming the lens and engineer Butchy Fuego capturing the audio, our time with Avi, Sheridan and Andrew proved to be entertaining and incredibly illuminating.
The first ever three-day edition of Fun Fun Fun Fest appropriately ended up being the most successful installment of this burgeoning annual gathering of music, comedy, arts (and everything in between) in Austin, Texas.
Vagabondage is the third and final film in a series of shorts by Aaron Rose using his iPhone 4. Shot on location in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Berlin and Prague, this is his most intimate film yet.
