Dinner with a Birdhouse & Hook Ups legend… Jeremy Klein. We embarked on a journey to Jeremy’s regular all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ spot, “Cham Sut Gol” in Garden Grove. If you follow @hookupsofficial on instagram, then you know what I’m talking about. And after being there, I know why he goes there a lot.
No need for a long write up & introduction here. Ed Templeton‘s art speaks for itself (you can read more about the exhibition on Juxtapoz, if you want). After a long day of doing nothing, I decided to go out and see Ed’s art show (exhibit), “Synthetic Suburbia” at the Roberts & Tilton Gallery in Culver City/L.A., C.A. Here are 36 photos I took at the public opening reception on Saturday.
Vans held their world premier of their first video, “Propeller” a skate film by the master filmmaker, Greg Hunt (Mind Field, Sight Unseen, Videoradio, among other films). This highly anticipated video only took since 1966 to get together, and it’s about time! Here’s a photo gallery of flicks from the whole night at The Orpheum Theater.
It was the second year anniversary for Volume 4. The best place for this was at the infamous BLACK bar in L.A. Kicking out the jams that night with the LSDJ‘s (Nuge, Gabe, J.Roy) and turned it up even more with The Blackouts (Atiba & Ako Jefferson). Congrats to Don “Nuge” Nguyen, Sammy Baca, & all the Baker Boys homies on the anniversary. Live Heavy, Travel Light. LISTEN TO VOLUME 4!
