Yes, the East Los Moz heads. I'll never forget being at a Strokes show at the Palladium in '03 and just being surrounded by Moz heads. The following is an excerpt from an overheard coversation: Fan 1: Hey, what's that on the back of your neck? Fan 2: Oh, it's my tat. It's a barcode. Fan 1: Wow. Of what? Fan 2: My favorite Moz cd's. Fan 1: Hmm, let me see if I can guess. (Looks at numbers) Is it (insert obscure Japanese export b-side)? Fan 2: Nope, it's actually (insert Norwegian full-album version).

Never got used to the Tam. I'm more of the 20s-something hipster crowd who drinks at Spaceland, Bigfoot, and then further out to the Tiki Ti and 4100.
Ahh Spaceland. Saw The Arcade Fire there, great show.
Bigfoot Lodge. Dodgy films and warm beer,mmmm
Tiki Ti, woogee woogee wooggeeeeeeeeeee...woogee woogee woooooooo!!

So you have to live in LA to say anything about it? I have grown up around here and my parents did as well, so does this not make me qualified?

Sorry if you took this personally, it is after all, just a city.

TOORRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Arcade Fire? Christ what a show. I've seen Kings of Convenience play with Feist there. The Colour's playing there every Thurs in Jan. Check them out if you can. I'm looking forward to London Calling night @ Bigfoot for the cheaper Guinness and a shot of moonshine.

I have to disagree with Rye and others about LA. Yes, there are many valid criticisms of the city, but I have never experienced so much energy anywhere else in the world, and I've lived and travelled through the US, Europe, and Asia (coincidentally, also in the last 10 years or so.) I'm not sure what it is. I think that it is the hot dry weather combined with the industrial buzz of the city (it is *very* industrial and industrious, something you have to experience to understand,) combined with people from all over the world coming to try to "make it". There is just a frenetic energy that I've felt nowhere else. I moved away to provincial little Boston, and wouldn't mind at all moving back.

Speaking of back, back on topic, the Cooper building houses a lot of major showrooms representing everything from Costume National to Rogues Gallery. Occasionally, there are sample sales and the showrooms open their doors to the general public, but by-and-large, the showrooms work on an appointment only basis.

I'll check out the Colour's, thanks. I saw Feist at Troubadour and at the begining of the year with Broken Social Scene somewhere on Hollywood, what an epic singer.

LA Guy: Heh!. I agree with your comment concerning how Industrious this town is. I worked in NYC for a little over 6 years, LA is by far the harder working of the two. People certainly know how to graft to get a job done.

Is there any way we can all get together and experience said showrooms? Styleforum L.A. meet?

I agree that there is a lot of 'energy' in LA, and at the same time, Angelinos can be laid back, which I very much appreciate. I just cannot stand New Yorkers and their obnoxious 'greatest city in the whole world' mentality.

On a side note, I have to say that diversity in LA is a funny thing because while LA is diverse, it is still very segregated.

Shit, that'd be a great idea.

In my opinion New York is the greatest city... in the U.S. at least. I live in L.A. and have that same attitude

I live, work and travel with the masses instead of the middle/upper-class laid back Angelinos out there. I think that all I see is the crazy ass hustle and bustle during the day time. It's hard to see that whole laid back attitude when I don't drive a car.

Oh, getting back to the topic: where can one obtain some selvedge denim fabric from cone?

Uh, if you're seeing bands at the troubadour, there really isn't much for you after 5 in downtown.
