HARD LA Cancelled

Regrettfully, HARD has cancelled their LA festival this weekend at LA State Historic Park featuring M.I.A. and N.E.R.D, but this line-up in New York City is still going on as planned next Saturday, July 24th. But not to worry Los Angeles, the HARD Summer festival featuring Soulwax and Crystal Castles is still moving full steam ahead to be held at LA State Historic Park on Saturday, August 7th.

Here is the press release regarding the cancellation of HARD LA:

“LOS ANGELES —

HARD LA M.I.A. Saturday July 17th has been cancelled, but not due to the lack of support or the full approval from the personnel at the City of Los Angeles and California State Parks who have signed off on our comprehensive security plan. We have decided to instead produce one massive event on August 7th at the same amazing location, the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Downtown Los Angeles.

We continue to work closely with LAFD, LAPD, City of Los Angeles, and California State Parks who continue to support all HARD events and have approved our plan to operate the HARD SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL at the Los Angeles State Historic Park on August 7th 2010 featuring Soulwax, Crystal Castles, Major Lazer, Erol Alkan, Diplo, Digitalism and more. HARD NYC M.I.A. in New York July 24 at Governors Island also continues as scheduled.”

See you all at HARD Summer!

A Faded Sunday

Yesterday, I went to the final day of the 2nd Annual THC Expose at the LA Convention Center and the 2nd night of HARD presenting the Bloody Beetroots with Sinden, Jokers of the Scene, Designer Drugs, and Destructo at the Palladium in Hollywood. I thought the THC Expose was definitely a step up from last year showing a wider range of uses of marijuana in the form of hemp and such, different and quite innovative products for one to medicate, numerous talented artists, and an interesting variety of entertainment.

As for the Bloody Beetroots, they of course pounded out all their big songs as well as breaking out on the drums and guitar for some hardcore/metal songs. As for the crowd that attended the show, all I can say is, our generation is DOOMED. I did have a good time though with Mikey, and Tarek and Steve came out to play as well! Here are some photos from the night:

What a bunch of coconuts!

SewDown @ Lot 613

As part of Spring LA Fashion Week 2010, I attended SewDown tonight downtown at Lot 613 with Jeff for the runway show. I really liked the venue because there’s a lot of space to work with. I’ve been there one other time when Media Contender and HARD presented Rusko Live. Although I like the venue, the production was pretty poor in my opinion. The room that held the runway was way too cramped and cluttered with vendors when a lot of those vendors could have fit outside.  Maybe they should have just held the runway outside since there is a lot more room to groove outside. The catwalk looked quite filthy and unpolished. A lot of the female models looked like they were having difficulties walking in heels, which I feel is EXTREMELY important as a model and strange as a female, and the male models looked very uncomfortable in their skin. My thoughts on each designer is below along with the images from the show, but all in all, I would have to say the show was mediocre. Maybe I just have too high expectations for others. It’s not like I was expecting this huge, elaborate production, but I was expecting to see a show that’s polished and not so sloppy. I would also like to see more creativity please!

This band opened the show. Although the singer looked cute with her pink pigtails, I would have enjoyed the music more if se had better stage presence. She had an entire catwalk to utilize as her stage and she barely took advantage of the space, and the only reason she slightly moved forward was because a production person told her to. She also looked up almost the entire time making insincere contact with the audience.

Sloane & Tate is supposed to be menswear inspired women’s lingerie, but it just looks like undesigned muscle tanks and booty shorts…
