Posted by Eric Brightwell, October 7, 2011 12:25pm | Post a Comment
SUNDAY SUNDAY



If you find yourself free this Sunday, DJs Larry G (Supercrass) and Timothy L (Modernbrit) of Club Underground (and Amoeba, in the latter's case) are going to DJ a set of post-punk, indie and more at Brightwell between the hours of 3:00 and 7:00.

CLUB UNDERGROUND


Club Underground bills itself as "LA's Premiere indie/britpop/new wave/electropop/twee/60s/soul party since 2001. It occurs most Fridays at the Grand Star Jazz Club in Chinatown.

BRIGHTWELL



Brightwell is a men's shop which bills itself as "LA's premiere men's shop specializing in luxury and craft objects for the discerning, grown-ass man since 2011." The High Street shop is the only one of its kind in Southern California and is located on the corner of West Silver Lake and Rowena in Silver Lake's fashionable Ivanhoe district.

AND YOU

So whether you're an avant-garde Dandy or a nostalgic Anglophile, you're liable to find something to your liking (even if it just turns out to be free wine, cheese and crakcers). Stop by, say "hullo" and pick up something for the men in your life.
