“Los Angeles continues to breed killer new bands like some sort of musical rabbit farm. This three-piece litter of sweet sonic babies is known as the Happy Hollows, appropriate as it’s hard not to smile like an idiot when they commander a club stage. A spin through their “Bunnies and Bombs” EP reveals the power-puffy trio bashing out hyperactive power-pop with a serrated buzz-saw edge of noisy guitars and Pixie-fied beats. Songs like “Meteor” and “My Wet Tongue” bops with an abandon familiar with 1990s “college rock” before it gets swallowed up by all things “indie.” But the main attraction is super-fine lead singer/guitarist Sarah Negahdari, a woman after my own heart with her trademark striped tube socks and wild rock babe ways. We double dog dare you not to develop a mad crush on her after just one show. It’s nigh impossible. Resistance is futile.” - Metromix LA

HUMAN RITES WATCH
a performance series curated by Michael Mahalchick
September 3 - October 28
Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery is pleased to announce Human Rites Watch, a performance series which will be presented at the gallery from Sept. 3 until Sept. 15, 2007. Curated by Michael Mahalchick, Human Rites Watch attempts to take advantage of the intimacy of the gallery space to present works that not only reflect the personal devotions of the artists but also how these devotions manifest themselves in social bonding and reveal the nature of how the individual relates to the community.
All performances will begin at
7:30 pm unless otherwise noted.
Performances are free and open to the public.
Not since running for class office in elementary, junior high, and high school have I felt the urge for me to say to you, "You can't go wrong, vote for Hong!"
Dear fellow Hustler of Culture readers/supporters, the 2008 SXSW Panel Picker launched last week and I need you to vote for my panel so I can attend SXSW and eat more Salt Lick Barbecue get the what's haps in interactive media.
I'm so down with conferences in Austin, the nerd herd, and film geeks. Sorry music heads, you are too hardcore for me. But whatevs, I want to play with you, and you, and you! Here is my proposed panel:
The Supercollider: A Hero of the Social Network.
We all know what kind of person a Connector is. A Supercollider goes beyond mere connections, throwing people together at high speed to generate the excitement and creative energy needed to force change. This panel will look at how Supercolliders use technology to accelerate the particles of their lives.
So it would super suck if I couldn't get enough votes to host this panel! Save me from shame! Please vote for me! All you've got to do is register and show me love (comments are welcomed). If you enjoy reading my blog, please consider supporting me in the offline world. Big ups and thanks for your support!

“Momento” featuring new works by Gronk and Ricardo garcia
Perhaps in the most unlikely of collaborative efforts, artists Gronk and Ricardo Garcia present their latest work in a two-man exhibition titled, “Momento.” Juxtaposing two distinct styles and approaches to the medium of painting, both artists attempt to express an honest communication between abstract and figurative techniques. Historically, it would seem both Gronk and Garcia have existed and created in two separate frames of mind. But what connects these two artists is their recognition and respect of one another’s work and ultimately, the desire to create an aesthetic effect greater than each individual artist. Gronk and Garcia have created collaboration in the truest sense of the word. Intimately, both artists have been fed by each other’s every meticulous decision and detail regarding color, concept, and creativity. The result is truly a feast, of paint, of canvas, and ultimately of two artists’ new work redefining what it means to create synergy.
“Momento” will run from September 1, 2007 to September 29, 2007. An opening reception will be held on September 8, 2007 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. An artist lecture will begin at 7:30pm.
My number one all time favorite Vietnamese dish is called Bo Nhung Nam which is essentially a beef hot pot (think, shabu shabu). After cooking raw beef in boiling coconut soda water, wrap it in rice paper and lettuce and spruce up the roll with simple condiments including lemongrass, pickled carrots and daikon, basil, mint, and cucumbers. The condiments as individual are not spectacular but when assembled together and dipped in an anchovy pineapple sauce, it's OMG, so crazy delicious!
Please join us this Friday August 31st at 8pm for the culinary and musical conclusion of Tomato quintet by Chris Chafe (Composer) and Nikolaos Hanselmann (Visuals) and Greg Niemeyer (Cook). Last week, 5 cases of different varieties of tomatoes (from Chafe’s garden) were installed at Machine Project. During this periond, we recorded the ripening process by tracking the changes in CO2 that the ripening produced. This data has been stored as a time series, compressed along the time axis, and translated into changes to a musical scale. Friday at 8pm musicians Lewis Keller and Cat Lamb will perform a live musical intrepretation of the score, while Greg transforms the tomato composers into dinner.
We have twenty seats open for a formal dinner of the quintet at 6:30pm. The dinner is free, with reservations accepted on a first come, first served basis. Bring your own wine. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot. Following the dinner, the gallery is open to all at 8pm to hear the performance and sample the cooking in a more informal manner.
One of my favorite Vietnamese dishes is a crispy crepe called banh xeo. Stuffed with pork, shrimp, mung beans, string beans, and onions, it's absolutely mouthwatering. Wrapped in lettuce leaves and dipped in a chili-lime-fish sauce, banh xeo is an instant winner with all who eat it. This dish plates so pretty and although looks complicated, is extremely easy to make.
