"BLVD Gallery is proud to announce a new music performance series featuring Seattle’s “Post Baroque Nu-Hop” ensemble FOSCIL. Foscils music is an amalgam of diverse influences touching on the atmospheric production of Wu Tangs RZA, the out-jazz of Miles, and the psychedelic meandering of Zappa.

The series of shows, titled “Residential”, will occur on the last Friday of every month with a different incarnation of Foscil. While the first show in January will feature the band in its regular lineup subsequent shows will be an opportunity for Foscil to explore their material through a variety of approaches including the use of the very deep talent pool here in Seattle. “The goal is to evolve”, says member Adam Swan “ People are in an artistic state of mind in the gallery setting and that environment lends itself to different perspectives of what our band can be”.

JUST IN: Friends United Network



We recently received a lovely little shipment from FUN ~ Friends United Network. They're a great group of people who produce lovely little wallets featuring designs by artists from around the world. A small batch of tees for both men and women came in as well... so be sure and drop on in while the pickings are ripe.

STYLE MOB

There is an online forum where girls and boys, armed with digital cameras; dress themselves up in the latest (and not so greatest) fashions. Style Mob plays host to young inspiring fashionistas who snap photos of their outfits, dish the details while their peers vote and WOW. Here are a few of my favorites.

Supreme Being Clothing

"Supremebeing offer both mens and womens quality british innovative streetwear.

Supremebeing was established in 1999, it is based around the lives of people who love their art, love their music and love their friends. Supremebeing are basically a family of artists: some design, some paint, some make music, some are the doers, some are the thinkers... we just all live to produce inspiring things whether visual, audio or conceptual.

We began with our 'homerange', about 60 designs which are still all printed to order on the Tee Shirt colour of your choice. With the homerange we take care of our printing which keeps us close to the quality side of the production, and also gives us the freedom to use any colours and experiment. Some of our customers can even end up with one off tee shirts without ever knowing it.



These days we offer full mens and womens clothing ranges, from our signature tracktops and distinctive skirts and jackets down to caps, belts, beanies, and sweatbands, plus canvases, art, shows, a little music, and looking further, brand new mens and womens ranges each seasons.

Winter 2006 also sees the launch of the Supremebeing trainer collection, 'Handmade' by Supremebeing designers DQ &Yoc, a distinctively yet original range handmade to order in Barcelona, utilizing fresh new fabric ideas and shapes crossed with authentic grass-roots tools and techniques. Expensive but very unique, this ltd edition range will be reborn as a more affordable range next year, along with the high-end made to order range.

Supremebeing takes its influence from friends, family and neighbors, drawing reference from all angles of our lives so far, and we'd like to make it the thing that we can build our futures with. We are constantly working on new designs and large format artwork and canvases, new beats are being made every night and new lyrics written every day. This is what it's all about for us; working with the things we love. We hope that the people can maybe be inspired by us in the same way we've been inspired by them."
