FROM THE FESTIVAL FIELD TO THE RUNWAY…

In the colorful and vast collective of up and coming designers, these L.A based brands have managed to establish a strong following at music festivals globally while still building their clout in the fashion world.

ROCK N’ ROLL ON ITS LAST LEG

I was so excited to see Guns N Roses. A band that embodied the pain and angst and rebellion I felt as a child and teenager from a broken home left to fend for myself in a cruel, lonely world. The anticipation followed me through the day.

BOB MOSES GIVES BACK: A REFLECTION FROM BPM

The BPM Festival is all about house music and it’s sub-genres. Now replacing Miami’s Winter Music Conference as the “it” festival, BPM is the hot spot to enjoy dance music, network with industry professionals, and get that fun in the sun on your beach vacation. BPM is all about having very selective day and night parties showcasing artists from both mainstream and underground record labels over the course of a 10-day event.

THE FLAMING LIPS & THE GIRL WITH THE HEART SUNGLASSES

By Brittany Tilleman Why do I love this iconic band? Is it their music? Well, that was the initial reason I was drawn to the band. No doubt they have released some cult classic anthems like She Don’t Use Jelly and Do You Realize?, as well as seriously amazing albums like The Soft Bulletin and Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots.

LISBONA SISTERS LOVE PIZZA

The Lisbona Sisters infiltrated the scene with their spandex-infused spunk and a connoisseur’s taste for elevated electronic beats. Over the last few years they have grown into a “house-hold” name, DJing across the country, opening for top-tier artists like Seth Troxler and Jamie Jones, playing some of the world’s best festivals like Coachella and BPM…

THE AGE OF TEMPORARY

Gazing at the Joshua Trees through the dusty passenger window, a serene air came over me. The monkey chatter of my exhausted analytical mind slowed down to a honey-like flow. Watching the desert shapes flood past the window, the mascara of toxic smog & city grime masking my third eye peeled away.

WINTER WARM UP

It is damn cold outside, well for us San Franciscans. With Indian summer long behind us, and December now here, we are cuddling up in anticipation of El Nino, and preparing for a long winter. Granted, it’s not like we are on the east coast or anything, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get shivers in our bones. Here is a quick list of ways to warm up, and wash away those blustering blues.

SO MUCH SOUL MAKOSSA

We’ve been hearing quite a bit coming from “the-land-down-under” in the world of house music, and we would be lying if we said we weren’t the least bit pleased. If you haven’t heard Yolanda Be Cool’s newest single ‘Soul Makossa’…

AN INTERVIEW WITH THE INFAMOUS BUBBLES

You’ve either seen Bubbles at a party, or walking down the street. One of San Francisco’s most infamous party personas recently just released an entire show’s worth of art work. We fell in love with it, so we decided to sit down and have a one-on-one chat about San Francisco, fashion, and art.  CV: Bubbles,… View Article

THE OTHER BURNING MAN SURVIVAL GUIDE

Burning Man is just around the corner and we have your survival guide. Now, I know they give you a good list of things you need for your week of radical self-reliance, but these are the things that are necessary some old-fashioned-fun time with friends.

BREAKING BOUNDARIES AN INTERVIEW WITH PAPA LU

TuTu Tuesday is always a fun time. You have to monitor yourself though, or you can end up cursing yourself hunched over on hump day wondering why you partied so much in the middle (or rather beginning) of the week. Oh yeah, cuz it’s fun.

A LENS AQUATIC

In a sea of photographers it can be a challenge trying to stand out. Los Angeles based, Mallory Morrison has been honing her skills in the art of underwater photography for the past several years. .

Old Man Raver Reminisces on Coachella Past & Present

So I’ve been to Coachella. 11 of them I think. It’s really tough to keep track, and the years/lineups really start to overlap. “Wait a minute, did I see Arcade fire on the side stage? Okay that must’ve been 2005… Wait was that the year that they had the giant wooden crane? No, that was 2009, or was it ’10? Shit I don’t know.”

FUTURE FACTORY @ TEMPLE W/ GINA TURNER

Gina Turner, notable female house music DJ and wife to Laidback Luke, is coming to San Francisco this week to perform at Culture Vulture’s Future Factory party at Temple Nightclub along an all-female DJ lineup including local favorite Laura Lisbona. A well-known DJ with an in-depth history in dance music both on-air and in the clubs, Gina is also a new mother and professional yogi.

SOFI’S MY STEEZE…UNLESS IT’S “SETH TROXLER’S BIG TITTIE SURPRISE”

A music festival for industry insiders along a warm sandy beach? Who wouldn’t want to go. Year after year, we’ve been trudging out to Miami from the West Coast, seeking a bit of metropolitan paradise during the Winter Music Conference. But in recent years the scene, music included, fell flat. Even the once aerated crusty cubano tasted stale and unpalatable.

JACK DANIELS + THRILLIST PRESENT FIRE ESCAPES

The creme de la creme of San Francisco nightlife turned out for a fun night of champagne and fire ball cocktails and cirque entertainment. Will just upload the pics, because a picture tells a thousand words, and after that party, we are just tired of talking. What a fun night!
