Morgan Manduley : Solo Show

We’re excited to announce our next solo show and art installation, featuring painter/illustrator Morgan Manduley. Dylan and Angella cruised down to Morgan’s studio at Space 4 Art the other night, check out an interview and batch of photos here. The Sun Hung Low or A Question Loomed opens September 28th.

John Heart Jackie “Nevada City”

Our dear friends John Heart Jackie from Portland, Oregon came through town earlier this summer to play a set in our living room. Chadwick Gantes captured a new track entitled “Nevada City”. Check out the video above and John Heart Jackie at the Tin Can Alehouse on October 11th.

Candy Claws & Tape Deck Mountain

Candy Claws brought their dream-pop, projection-laden set to Habitat House last week. Tape Deck Mountain opened the show, and Golden Hill photog Tommy McAdams took some rad photos through our window.

Endless Summer Ends

We’ve had quite a busy summer at the house, from Festivus Quietus and Endless Summer to shows with The Tree Ring, Candy Claws, John Heart Jackie and Erika Davies. For the next handful of weeks we’re going to keep things pretty quiet around 21st & Broadway, but if you’re in the neighborhood feel free to swing by for a white wine sangria and to see Leah Goren’s installation.

Internet Girls

Brooklyn-based illustrator Leah Reena Goren spent the Summer with us in her native San Diego working on a body of illustration and pattern design. She’s become a stylemaker, receiving press from influential blogs including Ventricular ProjectsCalivintageOh Joy! and DailyCandy NY, among others.

“Internet Girls is the result of the cycling of images and tastes through the Internet among girls in similar demographics,” says Goren. “The Internet makes global trends possible, and girls around the world share visual tastes in fashion, beauty, and lifestyle.” Alongside her illustrations, Goren will also showcase her original patterns and textiles as well as accumulated found natural kitsch (think succulents, geodes, crystals, etc).

Drinks & desserts will be on hand!

The opening reception is Wednesday, August 17 · 6:00pm - 10:00pm. RSVP on the event page HERE

FWBA Presents Candy Claws

Our dear friend Nada who runs the always-on-top-of-it music blog, Friends With Both Arms, has brought us another show that we’re super excited about. On Thursday, August 19th Colorado-based Candy Claws will be in town for an intimate performance in our living room. RSVP here and cruise over at 8pm next Wednesday.

The Tree Ring @ Habitat House

The Tree Ring came home from tour yesterday, capping off their two week trip with a sweaty, packed performance at Habitat House. The enthralled crowd demanded an encore, rising to their feet, stomping and clapping to “28th & NE Davis”. Definitely one of the best shows we’ve hosted at the house, and we’re glad Dylan Davis captured the moment so beautifully… click here for more of his photos.

Endless Summer II

The concept for Endless Summer started as a nerdy idea between a few friends last year. Together we watched it grow into the type of event that affected everyone around us. Moving from Suture’s downtown loft to Habitat’s Golden Hill living room, Endless Summer II boasts a roster of 17 hand picked artists. The salon-style exhibit will feature work that is fresh and contemporary, with installations scattered across the entire house. MIHO Gastrotruck will be serving local food on the street corner, and summery beverages will be available inside. Cruise out this Wednesday between 6-10pm for a celebration of all things summer.

The Tree Ring Return

By now you’re all familiar with The Tree Ring, one of our favorite bands who filmed a beautiful music video in our attic last winter. The four piece is heading on a Northwest / California tour at the end of this month which happens to end right in our living room on Wednesday, August 3rd. We’re expecting a very packed house so get here by 8pm to enjoy Matt Resovich’s Roll Film project and to grab a good seat for Joel and company. (Photo by Natalie Kardos)

Festivus Quietus Recap

Festivus Quietus quickly turned from a house party into a block party. With over 200 people hanging out in the back yard, front yard, street and house, it seemed like the whole neighborhood was there. The day started with a marvelous set by John Meeks and Joanie Mendenhall and finished with a sweaty dance party fueled by Rafter. Check out a short recap video below and a selection of photos and Polaroids.
