With Fashion Week in LA upon us once again, it’s another one of those marathon weekends for us! If you are not heading to any of the fashion shows slated for tomorrow night, here are some alternatives. I will be at all three of these events at some point, embarking on one of my infamous “try to make it to everything in one night” evenings.
First Stop: The REVOLUTIONS Art Exhibition is currently underway and will continue to run through March 28th at Crewest Art Gallery (110 Winston St. LA, CA 90013). However, this weekend Crewest steps it up a notch allowing the infamous NY TC-5 crew invade their space during LA Fashion Week with a one-of-a-kind show featuring customized vintage streetwear shown as wearable art: custom painted denim and tees designed specifically for REVOLUTIONS by TC-5 all shown on models throughout the gallery.
“Imagine a Mickey [Mouse] wearing Air Jordans, leaning on a Moët bottle crowned with a dukey rope chain around his neck, dripping in gold and saying your favorite songs hook.” This was t
he beginning. This is the future. This is classic hip-hop style. Welcome to the world of Shirt King Phade, one-third of the unrivaled founding fathers’ of cartoon and graffiti inspired airbrushed clothing, The Shirt Kings and member of the legendary TC-5 crew of NYC. Legendary for one of a kind, of-the-moment wearable works of art that adorned t-shirts, jeans, jackets -whatever you could think of – on the backs of everyone from LL Cool J, to Salt-n-Pepa, to Theo Huxtable in the early 80’s, Phade laid THE foundation for the street inspired urban revolution we now call ‘hip-hop fashion.’”
Also featuring custom clothing by Apliiq, Local Tourist, Puma and Insurgency Inc.

Next Stop: IsGoodMusic.com presents Firelight III: Mouth by Mouthwest
Are you in the mood for a party? How about a party featuring over 10 talented LA bands/artists sharing one stage performing 2 songs each, all acoustic? If your answer is yes (I haven’t event gotten to the cheap $3 cover and cheap tacos grilled on demand part) then you should head out to this month’s installment of the IsGoodMusic Firelight traveling monthly party. This month’s acoustic explosion is aptly titled “Mouth by Mouthwest” and will take place at 1670 Beverly Blvd. LA, CA 90026. They will also be featuring Art from various artists (including: Rob Tokarz, Sabrina Noel Hill, Novei Beige, Melanie Mabugat, Sam Hart, and Amy Bernays)
