    Where Are You Dancing Tonite?

    A crazy amount of events going on tonite...lookee here: The Rub will be doing their thing in NYC, Diplo and Catchdubs are at Temple in San Francisco, and Guns'N'Bombs will be in Montreal with Curses! But downtown LA might be the place to be: I Heart Comix is going big with Mstrkrft, Z-trip, LA Riots, and Lasaro Casanova. And Dim Mak might have them beat with a line-up that includes Justice, Busy P, 2 Live Crew, Peaches, A-Trak, Whitey, and every DJ in LA.

  • Chinnychinchin


    Chinnychinchin can't be accused of skimping on detail. Case in point: their individually hand burnt range of urban collectable cars. Hot.

    Steve "Espo" Powers

    Tho Espo hasn't lived here in years (he's up in NYC nowadays) we're claiming this post for Phila. His new book, Studio Gangster, encapsulates 5 years of paintings and is published on the occasion of his Fall 2007 exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.

    If eyes are really the windows to the soul, then we wonder what these "eyescapes", shot by Rankin, (who you might know as a co-founder of Dazed & Confused) are telling us. (Via Notcot.)

    Tis the season for holiday-inspired cupcakes from Trophy Cupcakes and Party. We think we would choose chocolate candy cane. Or maybe bourbon eggnog or gingerbread or candied yam or snickerdoodle or…let’s be honest, we’d get a whole dozen.
