How seriously EPIC are these arms that Guy Le Tatooer made for one of his gallery shows?! Displaying the incredible work he's been tattooing for some time now, I think one look could have the tattoo-less changing their minds. A-m-a-z-i-n-g! X - Jen
In the '90s, the Nile theatre was Phoenix’s answer to the Whisky A Go Go. The Nile hosted a stage to alternative greats such as Blink 182, Motorhead, and AFI – but in 2002, the venue could no longer hold its own. But glory days resurrected, the Nile re-opened last February. Friday they’re hosting a birthday party where new local legends will be made. Bands on the bill include The Technicolors, Hooves, Radio Drive By, Mike Goodrick, Out Of Reverie, The Riveras and more! (Photo by Jonathan McNamara.) -Alyssabeth

Seriously, I'll bet so many designers could create the best wallpaper. It's fitting to see Vivienne Westwood go first with this print from her '81 Pirate collection for her pairing up with Cole & Son. X - Jen
During my time living in Kansas City, I came across many different talented and promising bands, one of which includes my boys in the Electro Pop group Queens Club. Beyond catchy melodies, anthemic hooks and fist pumping beats, it is more than safe to say that the QC guys know how to bring the dance! Check out their video for "Less Talk" above. While you are at it, make sure to catch them on tour right now with the bonafide babes of Poema! Listen to their song "Dust," it's my personal favorite. -Aren
When your dad is an Elvis impersonator, you're probably destined for a career in costume-making. Lelanni found herself on just that path when she abandoned her position as an art director to open Leilanni Land, an online boutique specializing in custom-made costumes, elastic cage skirts and lots and lots of leather.
Sure, we never threw people out of cars after class or pose with switchblades for our yearbook pictures, but the new video from Sleigh Bells still manages to makes us nostalgic for high school. (Via MTV).
