And this is how it ended…

But it started off with a determined trip to catch the MiXTAPE Los Angeles Pop Up exhibition CURATED BY Jessicka Addams & Brian Wakil

Mechanical Man by KRK Ryden inspired by DEVO

“LISTEN & LOOK, 24 artists, 24 songs, ONE stream of consciousness.  “LA MiXTAPE documents the effect of music on the process of creation, asking each participating artist to create a piece titled after a song, artist, or band that has inspired or influenced his/her creative process – until August 28th at LeBasse Projects Chinatown at 932 Chung King Rd., Los Angeles, CA 90012.

As I wandered the lit courtyards, I even managed to go shopping in the dark at 9:30pm and accidentally ran into the girls from Dle Cosmetics who enthusiastically convinced me that I needed 3 All Natural LightUp Lip Glosses.  Even the guys were into this one (they sell a man’s lip balm too!)

But it was KCRW DJs Jason Bentley, Anthony Valdez, Jeremy Sole, Valida & Aaron Byrd who pulled out all the stops with a Chinatown Summer Nights dance party on the final night of a 3 night immersion of art, culture, food & music!


Spontaneity RULES!
