Los Angeles-based creative collective Bagavagabonds (BV) has announced the launch of the collaborative and philanthropic art event series Art Migration, presented by smart USA! and Incase. With stops in Austin, Los Angeles, and Portland, each Bagavagabonds event will feature a community-driven, submission-based art gallery. All works will be sold via silent auction with a cap of $100 and 100% of the proceeds to benefit local arts charity organizations. These events will also provide an opportunity to interact with smart vehicles and Incase products in unique and entertaining new ways.
Whether you’re a budding recreational artist or booming professional, here’s your chance to get involved with this collaborative arts movement and produce an original piece of work for the Art Migration events in Downtown Los Angeles, CA, (December 1st), and in Portland, OR, (December 8th). Use the theme “Migration” to inspire you, and know that you are producing with a purpose, as each piece will sell for $100 bucks (or less), with 100% of the proceeds going to our dear friends at Room 13 LA. We look forward to having you with us.
Join Ghostly International for 4 Days of Sound, Art and Inspiration + Download an Exclusive Compilation
Incase is proud to support Ghostly International: Of Art and Artifice, a multi-day event presented by the Art Directors Club CRE8 Series that promotes art connected through a spirit of inventiveness and anti-genre thinking. In the years since its birth in 1999, Ghostly has grown from a boutique label known for its experimental-pop and -techno acumen to an internationally recognized platform for the work of the world’s best visual artists, designers, technologists, and musicians.
As a multi-platform cultural curator, Ghostly International is a tightly knit aesthetic universe fulfilling the roles of art gallery, design house, clothing designer, technology innovator, music-publishing company and record label, all in one. From September 13-16, The Art Directors Club will house a comprehensive exhibition that gives a peek into what’s next after 13 years of creativity from Ghostly International, highlighting an essential selection of work from the Ghostly family in a never-before-seen collection. In addition to the exhibition, Of Art and Artifice will also encompass a series of events that include an Opening Gala with live performances by Com Truise, Lusine and NYC’s own Michna, as well as two days of talks with Ghostly artists hosted by Incase.
In celebration of the upcoming event, we are proud to feature an exclusive compilation of tracks from Ghostly International’s lineup of artists available for streaming and download only at goincase.com.
Tickets for Of Art and Artifice are available now via Eventbrite.
This past Saturday and Sunday, September 1st and 2nd, roughly 52,000 independent music fans braved the sweltering heat to attend the ninth annual FYF Fest at the LA State Historic Park near Downtown Los Angeles. Featuring more than 90 performing artists and a plethora of other entertainments (including four music stages, one enormous dance/comedy tent, boatloads of beer gardens, a cavalcade of food trucks, massive shade tents, comfy VIP lounges, and the dazzlingly spastic visuals of Videothing’s Michael Reich), the promoters aimed quite literally to provide “The Best Two Days of Summer,” and then some.
As a sixth-year returning sponsor of the festival, Incase gifted custom ‘F#@K YEAH FEST!” totes, custom “FYF” Snap Cases for iPhone 4s, Incase-branded earplugs, and Boxed Water to the first 500 lucky attendees through the gates each day. It could safely be said all 1,000 totes were snatched up in under ten minutes, thank you very much. Huge thanks to Sean Carlson, Phil Hoelting, Michael Gutierrez, Mariko Jones, Goldenvoice, The City of Los Angeles and the entire California State Parks Department. We’ll see you again next year.
This Friday begins the ritual as Neck Face manifests in its human form to conjure up thy minions in the name of his latest atrocity exhibition of desecrated delights. One Grand Gallery in Portland, Oregon will be the ceremonial site as Nasty Neck transforms this once-cheerful space into a pop-up flea market of ghoulish intent. A Deal with the Devil has been made and there’s no turning back.
Incase will be participating by offering laser etched leather iPhone case with artwork by Neck Face.
Friday night, August 31st, THIS los angeles and Incase are pleased to present an exhibition of new work by San Francisco-based artists Danny Gibson and Mike Bertino. “Gold Coast” will run Aug. 31st through Sept. 21st, 2012.
For the opening event we’ve created 100 limited-edition custom-dyed totes featuring the West Coast-inspired handiwork of Gibson and Bertino. Arrive early to pinch a tote. Trust us, these California dream bags are definitely gonna go fast. We look forward to having you with us.
Today we’re excited to announce our sponsorship of FYF Fest for the 6th year in a row. That’s right— six years of bewildering musical mayhem as brought to you by Sean Carlson and Phil Hoelting of FYF Fest Productions, (aka self-proclaimed ‘Geniuses at Work’).
Saturday & Sunday, September 1st and 2nd, the festival will again take place at the LA State Historic Park. Nestled between Chinatown and Downtown Los Angeles, this two-day festival event spans four massive stages and will feature performances by more than 90 musical guests, stand-up comedians, and potentially a live goat or two, (not kidding). As well, you’ll experience a heap of local food trucks and retail vendors from across Southern California’s expansive independent community.
Come join Incase and an expected 26,000 music lovers as we all laze the day away and celebrate the arts. By the way, we’ll be giving away custom-made FYF tote bags and limited edition FYF Snap Cases for iPhone 4S to 500 patrons per day. We look forward to having you with us.
There will be games, rides, prizes and, of course, performances by Tyler, Hodgy, Left, Domo, Mike G, Earl, The Internet, Trash Talk as well as other to-be-announced special guests, all going down on September 30 at Club Nokia at L.A. Live.
Tickets are available now in three packages, so get ‘em while you can. We’re also cooking up some special exclusives for the event, so stay tuned for more info!

Well folks, the annual Chicago music festival Tomorrow Never Knows has once again come and gone. Our friend Rob at Schuba’s sent over images and a short recap of last week’s event:
Now in it’s seventh year, Tomorrow Never Knows is the only event of its kind in Chicago during the bitter month of January, bringing together the best in buzzed about local acts as well as nationally acclaimed indie acts. This year featured the likes of Markéta Irglová, Mister Heavenly, Freddie Gibbs, Twin Shadow and Hansdsome Furs.
By all accounts the festival brought an appreciated reprieve from the snowy weather. Did patrons enjoy their iPhone 4 cases? Oui. Were we happy to lend a hand? Definitely. To Rob and everyone at TNK, thanks again for having us. We’ll see you again next year. Bundle up.
Despite the snow covered streets and bone shattering 27-degree temperatures, the brave souls of Chicago are again throwing one of the most entertaining music festivals in North America— Tomorrow Never Knows 2011.
From January 12-16th, Schubas, Lincoln Hall, and the Metro are joining forces to bring you five nights of live music, buzzing ear drums, and tender vibes. As a sponsor of the festival we will be on hand gifting products for your iPhone 4 and generally doing whatever we can to help make this fantastic celebration of independent music and culture go down. Bundle up, bring ear plugs. We look forward to seeing you there.
