It was one of those New York nights. As a hungry, pre-FW crowd tittered in the drizzly evening, inside Milk Gallery it was an endless summer in celebration of photographer Ben Watts’ Mixtape. Sun-dappled imagery lined the walls, models smiled from customized surf boards, and “special guest” Shantell Martin drew her loopy scrawls on the faces and clothing of guests.
We spent the day at Internet Week New York yesterday talking about women in digital media, “the new social” and other hot topics with some very smart folks. Wrapping the day at a playboy’s paradise of a townhouse in SoHo (synchronized swimmers? Check.) we caught the lovely Caitlin Moe and Mia Moretti doing their thing. We last saw the pair at SXSW. Peep the video here! http://arcade44.tv/news/watch-sxsw-day-four/
Last night we checked out the insanely talented flamenco duo, City of the Sun. BLOWN AWAY. There could not be anything better, than to see young musicians playing tribute AND doing justice to a beloved genre of the past. The gentlemen have a residency at Hotel Chantelle on the LES, every Wednesday. Can’t wait to see more from these guys.
New track from Fiona Apple. Big time swoon-ing going on over here at the Arcade.
