Went out to the mad decent block party this past saturday. Free concert :) Got to catch Mr. Diplo play for like 10-15 minutes! and got to see this dope new dj that i am kind of a fan now. (LUNICE). Dude was wildin’ out.
Major Food truck Actions!
Of course no block party would not be w/o a DODGEBALL tournament
Hipster galore. Bigups to the wacky inflatable tubes :)
Right after the blockparty headed over to BIGMANBAKES and got myself a cupcake! :)
So I’m up late because I wanted to do a blogpost about my trip to this cool artshow. “I AM 8BIT" up in echo park. I had a really great time, and it was nice to just take a time out from work and kind of just relax and enjoy some really awesome art. Originally we wanted to go to the artwalk, but I’ve heard about this show last year and wanted to go, and one of my JETSET crew members Nicky told me a that it was happening again this year, and sent me a flyer!
Pretty much its an artshow with over 100 artists re-imagining their favorite 80’s video game characters.
So I convinced my friends to go, and head to hipsterville usa aka Echo Park to this show
As you can see this awesome 2 block line we waited, but it was okay because later we found out that it was an OPEN BAR inside :) (For all who don’t know I am on a 6month no alcohol cleanse. I am on Week 5 going on Week 6 lol.)
Of course while we wait there was this awesome treasure chest w/ shield & treasures.
Sick Old Video Game Consoles & Equipment
This is one of my favorite paintings from this show just because I realize I really like this video game. Its one of the first video games that I played. Maybe even my first, I just remember my Dad taking me to this liquor store down the block and he’d watch me play this all day.
This is actually really cool! I am actually right in front of this screen with a peace sign up. The camera actually 8bits me into these cubes! #CUBESTEEZ
This actually took up the whole wall!
This is actually really cool! Can you find all the Super Mario references?
Great show! Till next time!!
P.S. i shall include this video that I put together to showcase some of the cool things that I saw.
