My amazing friends from Austin were in New York to show much love at Voxtrot's final "Goodbye, Cruel World" shows at the Bowery. It was an incredible night of good laughs, crazy dancing and sweet tunes.
Afterwards, we drank ourselves into oblivion and danced our hearts out like there was no tomorrow.
On Saturday, the Creators Project event thrown by Vice and Intel was happening at Milk Studios and thanks to my buddy Joseph, who's a badass producer at VBS, I was able to get a pair of wristbands. This was next level shit. Mindblowing exhibits by artists such as Radical Friend, Spike Jonze, and Nick Zinner, and multi-level hot and sweaty intimate performances from tons of acts like Sleigh Bells, Die Antwoord, Gang Gang Dance, Neon Indian, and of course the (not-so) surprise guest, M.I.A. For more photos check the Creators Project blog.
The next day was the Pride parade, and that means one thing... party at Christopher St. My friend Trevor has an amazing apartment on the corner of Christopher and Greenwich, which is where the parade ends, and every year, he throws a mega sweaty house party that starts at noon and ends til we all pass out.
For the party, Ashley and I bought a dozen cupcakes from Sugar Sweet Sunshine in the Lower East Side. Lugging the cupcakes and bags of booze through the Pride crowd was definitely tolerance-building.
Just down the street on the weekends is the Hester Street Fair. We swung by and I can't say I was blown away by it (I much prefer and love the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene-- better selection and vibe). I read that there was going to be a "Stylist Tent" so was eager to see what finds I would be able to score. Aside from a large Philip Lim dress and a so-so vintage selection, there wasn't really anything "stylist" worthy. So, I got a paprika and gruyère pretzel instead.
