Last night I went to the opening of the Generic Man pop-up shop at Space 15 Twenty here in Los Angeles. The event was in conjunction with the launch of Generic Man’s Spring/Summer ’09 line, as well as the addition of a rather sexy line of women’s shoes as well. The evening was rather fun, with plenty of good looking, well dressed people in attendance.
The pop-up itself was beautiful, with lots of structures made of recycled materials like wood and cardboard. The decorations were great, including Generic Ceramics or Pottery or something like that, a line of pots that were for sale and contained some nice succulents. There was also a flat gray Fiat parked in the middle of the space, looking tiny and cute.
To further compliment the shoes and atmosphere there were issues of Arkitip strewn about as well as a display for SUPER Sunglasses. You could even buy the furniture that was on display! If you’re around LA I’d definitely suggest you stop by, they’ve made a really great space.
Check under the cut for a ton more photos and details of the space.

Last night I ended up heading over to Amoeba Records to see Vampire Weekend play. I figured this would be my only chance to see them in the near future since their show at the El Rey in March is already sold out.
I got there around 6 pm, and the show started at 7, so I thought I’d have a pretty good spot. I was wrong. The first two aisles on each side were already filled to the brim with people, which meant I wasn’t that far away, just far enough to make taking photos hard. Jonah Hill from Superbad was also hanging out as well. I wanted to give him my card but he vanished before I could!
The show itself ended up being really good, and they were really great live. They nearly played their entire album, it is quite short, but I was particularly happy that they played M79 (which is about a bus or bus line), The Kids Don’t Stand A Chance, and ended with Oxford Comma. By the end, all of Amoeba was jam packed with people listening, which kind of surprised me.
As for my photos, I think they turned out pretty shitty at first, but I tweaked the hell out of them and made ‘em look like they came out of an Urban Outfitters catalog. So if you think they look lame now, you should have seen them before!
