Creative Update 5

More local focus: I came across this beautifully and funny video on Peter Shire, one of my favorite local LA artists:

His stuff is funky in an 80s sort of way and hand made in Echo Park (I told you it was local). If you don’t chuckle and get happy watching this, I can’t help you. Also check out his website here:

Lastly, Peter is a wonderful artist and craftsman and just as funny in person. He also makes mean espressi. If you manage to get on his mailing list, he has an open studio event every December with lots of stuff at all price ranges, including stuff that is actually affordable.

On the music front, the singer/song-writer and his two female vocalists know as Bahamas took my breath away. Simple, twangy with beautifully languid lyrics. The front man played with Feist before, that’s serious credentials. More here:
