Alley Cats: Franky Flowers

Franky Flowers is an indie rock band based in Los Angeles, CA, lauded for their highly infectious, catchy sounds that ingeniously combine psychedelic rock, shoegaze, garage rock, surf-grunge, lo-fi, and noise pop; their debut EP Blue Eyes, released in the summer of 2014, catapulted them to indie stardom; they have since released two new singles, “Sneakers (Sneaky Thing)” (December 2015) and “Corpse” (March 2016), prefaces to a new LP that is currently in the works; a crowd favorite, they are kept in heavy rotation among some of L.A.’s legendary venues like the Smell, Bootleg Theater, Timewarp Records, the Echo, and the Hi Hat; visit their Bandcamp page to listen to their songs, or their YouTube channel to see their videos; follow @frankyflowersla for updates on upcoming shows

All I Need in This Life of Sin: PreeMade Fall/Winter 2016 Lookbook

PreeMade Clothing is a passion project of artist and stylist Jeris DuPree where he takes old clothes (and shoes) and turns them into one-of-a-kind pieces by distressing, bleaching, and spray-painting them in his own signature style, often with the use of everyday tools and materials; their pieces have sold at the Melrose Trading Post, the Silverlake Flea, the transient DTLA editions of Artists & Fleas, and they stage pop-up shops from time to time; they also accept special orders (i.e., you send them your old clothes and they will work their magic on them); follow @pree_made on Instagram for more of their work, and for updates on future pop-ups

The Lyrical Gangster: Elidio

Elidio is a recording artist based in San Jose, CA; originally from Mexico, he likes to incorporate his heritage into his music, resulting in a fresh, highly original sound that mixes his Spanish lyrics with Bay Area stylings, heavy-hitting beats, buzzing basslines, and smooth synth riffs; he is known for his “hang loose” approach to performing, easily adapting to any type of crowd by improvising his narratives and his music; he mostly performs around the Bay Area, but hopes to expand his network at some point; his latest EP, Flip the Pyramid Upside Down, was released last year (2016), and a follow-up is currently in the works; visit his Soundcloud page to check out his music; follow @elidio__ on Instagram for updates on upcoming releases and live performances
