Fun, fun, fun: at the release party for the band “Modern Space” whose EP is coming out… now! They remind me a bit of Tokyo Police Club, swingy, punchy and youthful, with great beats and catchy bass lines. A cute, grungy gang of men dressed in a motley bunch of offhand outfits that could easily have been pulled from a drama teacher’s closet and a hipster/dive bar, mashed together. The event had freely flowing beer courtesy of Beau’s. MMmmm Lug. Tread. Hosted by Nuvango, the crowd was smattered with their signature bold prints and graphic leggings, which Nuvango is known for (all prints in their line are sourced and give credit to the actual artists for the use of their images). The space also hosts art openings in their gallery space, which has also found itself reinterpreted as a one-0ff yoga studio and, now, a concert venue. Also important: their leggings are SO comfortable, and incredibly well-made. See them (below). I love them. Fan. For sure.
It was worth going out on a weeknight for a dip into the random fun of being young, or at least feeling a little younger for some hours. Talking to strangers is always a good time at Nuvango. Especially when those folks are strange already-friends. Below, some featured art from Jake Sherman’s “I’m New Here” series.
My favourites: pink flamingo style.
Checking out the newest line of straight-from-the-runway items, soon to be available at Nuvango’s Queen Street storefront. Art. My lady love. The band. And the shadows.
Some rough clips. Cheers to live music, great art work and weeknights.
