While a lot of you were in Indio for Coachella, we had our own schedule of events going on in-town. For one, Thom Yorke‘s band Atoms for Peace had a show at The Santa Barbara Bowl and better yet all weekend in our downtown Ventura we had The Spring Artwalk. With little to no preparation, the shop ended up having a great representation for the event. Since the shop has it’s Latino flavor, what better way to have art represented than with 2 Chicano style artists. Andrea Vargas & Rolando Camarena came thru in the clutch with so many great pieces and live painting with music alongside DJ Ben (Firecracker-LA) & DJ Wizkid. *Note: With so many artistic heads roaming around, it was nice to see positive reactions to our store concept rather than the usual “What…clothes? You mean guys don’t sell food here.”
Shouts to Margaux (left) for putting together our very first Artwalk & her pops (right) for rockin’ the cow tee all weekend…available now at the shop. Get it while you can.

Artwalk brought out everyone who has a love for the arts even graffiti…whoa.
