Fellow good-time cosmonauts - can you believe it? The second-half of summer is here!
THE FIRST ARC of HM157's summer orbit was most auspicious & brought the canary yellow house, our social rocket-ship, in tight circuit to a phenomenal path of stellar activity. With the planetary advent of the solstice, we celebrated the cotillion of Claire McKeown's wonderfully-curated & byzantine Honey Child with a litany of artists - Nora Keyes, Native Fauna, Other, Miss Jupiter, et alia.
FAST ORBIT TO our first SUPER-DUPER-YARD-SALE marking the arrival of sun-sign Leo - a swap event so singular in its scope that it caught the attention of the LA WEEKLY boasting tarot readings, Aveda master-trained haircuts & enough what-nots, thing-a-mabobs, gee-gaws & vintage duds to keep an awesome & steady river of folks curious about our happy spot until after event's listed end at 6p.
The house enjoyed a quiet month this July, a social reprieve that allowed us a bit of time to recoup, re-energize & to rededicate. Refreshed & invigorated, we now enter August & September with a roaring list of events with which to punch-up your calendar.
Perhaps the event most-engaging, the event upon which all other play-dates, dinners & galas shall hang - the return of the 'flea-market slayer', the 'swap heard 'round the world', the 'crowning jewel of the trash diggers' trifecta' - the SUPER-DUPER-YARD-SALE no. 2!
That is right, folks - join us - SATURDAY, AUGUST 23rd - in what may be the most creative collective purge of treasure, baubles, bits & what-nots! Vintage clothes & shoes, books - new & old, a back catalogue of electronics that would make anyone blush showcasing Reid Maxwell's 'famous pit of cables', housewares, jewelry, merry-pranks & jokes, tarot readings, haircuts, practical advice & so much more will be available for your happy purchase!
Some of the stellar sellers of the premiere SDYS will return, but there will be many more fresh sellers ripe for discerned spelunking! Once again refreshments will be on hand for your delectation! Find the freshest of 'fits for FYF - come hunt for duds while grooving to the fittest of tunes from 11a - 6p! NO EARLY BIRDS! WE AIN'T GOT NO WORMS! BUT WE DO HAVE NIGHT OWLS --- our second iteration of the SDYS shall be marked with an evening of sonic commune & backyard git-down!
As night falls upon the scene of our second collective swap & those few things unsold are tidied into boxes for future discovery, HM157 shall host a shocking bill. Your aural pleasure is tantamount & thus we present The Herms, Arc Ov Light, Terminal A, Nora Keyes, Mr. Television, DJ Don Bolles illuminated by the projections of Wes Johansen. Spend the twenty-third with us - LINCOLN HEIGHTS IS FOR LOVERS! Click the images below for further information & to RSVP.
