We’re big fans of Grant Barnhart’s work. It’s hard not to be. Now, he’s gone and gotten himself a show in his hometown of Seattle at the OKOK Gallery. Running from November 8 – December 7, Remember Me When features new works from Barnhart and his subversive vision of Americana.

Yo! Our good friends over with 55DSL are launching a pop up store in Costa Mesa this Thursday, November 6th. To commemorate the occasion, they’ve got a cuh-razy party lined up featuring DJ sets from the ubiquitous indie chanteuse of the moment, Lykki Li, and Bjorn Yttling her super producer/one third of Peter Bjorn and John. Also getting in on the fun will be the OC’s own Dan Sena and Greg “PNut” Galinsky who will be providing the artwork.
The pop up store will be open at South Plaza Mall through January 31st and you can RSVP for the launch party at http://www.bpmmagazine.net/55DSL

Would you run a 10k with little-to-no training for a chance to see Kanye and Common once you finished? This was the proposition facing us when a friend duped convinced us into competing in Nike’s Human Race last weekend. We’re proud to say that we finished (barely) with our lungs and legs in tact and our nipples not-as-chafed as we feared.

Branded Bunny is an up and coming photographer and street artist with his first solo show opening in L.A. on August 2nd. His subject matter depicts a world devoid of meaning and he describes the images in his first show as an exploration of “urban alienation, search for meaning, vandal culture, and fuck-it-all partying.” If that doesn’t scream L.A. then I don’t know what does.
Branded will also be creating a mural in honor of the show so be sure to keep an eye out for that. Get full info on the exhibition here and be sure to check it out if you can.
