My Favorite Taco with Fei-Fei, Host of Feided ~ TONIGHT at the Lash in Downtown Los Angeles

FEI-FEI_3

What can people expect at your monthly night at the Lash in DTLA?
Lots of tequila and lots of fun. And a ton of dope music. I have a pretty diverse style myself so I’m looking forward to bringing a different flavor to DTLA. A mix of all my favorite artists, friends and of course the Feided crew. It’s all about the vibe for me, whether it’s bass-house-future-indie-trap-hop-electronica. I just want people to have fun.

The Street Art of Laurel Canyon ~ A Visual Tour by Tom Andrews

street_art_Laurel_Canyon

Los Angeles has a few areas which are synonymous with street art and graffiti– Melrose and Fairfax, the Arts District, the Venice walls, etc. but part of what makes this city a true art lover’s paradise is that public art pops up just about everywhere you look. A unique area of the city which has a vibe all its own, both artistic and otherwise, is Laurel Canyon, and it’s also a surprisingly vibrant place for street art.

Famed as a 70’s singer-songwriter paradise, the area’s home prices have risen to astronomical levels, but there are still artists, hippies, and weirdos hiding out in those canyons and hanging on to the dream. The best street art in this area is site specific and captures the feeling of being in a place that is both urban and natural, a canyon made by millions of years of water but decorated by hundreds of years of humanity. The street art of Laurel Canyon is often subtle, sometimes self-referential, and tends towards the decorative. If there is one theme that seems to unite the work of artists working the streets of the canyon, it’s love.
