People are always stuntin’ and never afraid to express their own style in the city of strange Angels. We may not be known for our Fashion Week the way Paris, Milan & New York are, but “West coast cool” has always been considered classic—a style often imitated and never quite duplicated.
With Los Angeles Fashion Week right around the corner this week is dedicated to paying tribute to the melting pot of art, culture and influence that is L.A. Music has always been a driving force in my passion for fashion, so slip on that lil’ something that illuminates your persona and let the rhythm of choice take you for a ride.
Here’s the best in the West of "happenings” to attend…

ELI GLAD,BRIAN TARNEY & MICHAEL ANTHONY
For intimate patio vibes in the heart of Hollywood check out Terrace. This virgin venue may be recognizable, since it previously was hot spot Paul & Andres, as well as sexy speakeasy Room 86. SF transplants and local faves Eli Glad and Brian Tarney will be spinning back to back along with San Francisco’s Supperclub sweetheart Michael Anthony on the decks.
Don’t forget to wish L.A based film maker & femme fatale miss Mareesa Stertz a Happy Bday!
SATURDAY MARCH 8
MR C, XO CHIC & MORE/SUPERFREQ
The “Chics” come out at night….
For the SUPERFREQ 12 year anniversary MR.C, XO CHIC, JUST BE & DAVID SCUBA
will ring in the affair proper and have your spiritualized from their heavy vibes.
The SUPERFREQ HQ got me even more excited from this statement…..
“Dearest Freqy Angelinos,
We trust you’re all well & enjoying life to the max.
After an amazing 12th anniversary celebration in London last weekend, we fully expect the LA freqs to kick it just as hard this coming Saturday. It was this time last year that we re-launched the Superfreq label & we’ve had 18 record releases since, with of course our Los Angeles Superfreq contingent of Head honchos Mr.C & David Scuba, along with Xo Chic & Dance Spirit featuring heavily among those releases. It doesn’t seem a year ago that Eddie Richards joined these artists for our amazing 11th anniversary celebration in a downtown warehouse, a party that will burn long in our memories for the fun that we had that evening. A year on & it's tme for this year’s celebration, which will of course be an all night shindig on Saturday March 8th, for which we’ve secured a stunning secret venue. Of course this space will be fitted out with a high-end production, including a four-corner turbo sound system & lasers, so we can get freqy with our festivities.”
SATURDAY MARCH 8
DOC MARTIN, PLASTIC LOVE & MORE/DISCO DIVE
THE STANDARD. LOS ANGELES
Splish splash! It’s pool party season once again. There may not be a lifeguard on duty, but the Doc himself, Doc Martin of course, will be taking the Standard rooftop on a magical musical journey . Joining him we welcome Plastic Love, along with MD and Ben Beck!!
Doc Martin’s live sets truly bring people together. The variation in his style of music is endless. A unique ability to spin everything from deep house vocals that have much depth and meaning to us all in some way, to his funky tribal Bass lines mixed with threads of acid, his passive collection of classics rare records that are only to be heard at his gigs. Doc Martin has developed the respect as a house DJ that so many of us admire. It is this respect that keeps him constantly touring; from New York to London, Japan, and everywhere in between.
