Hey y’all, you ready for summer? Cuz it’s here! We’ve got new crop tops, holograms and sunnies for your barbecuing pleasure. Mosey on over to covenconstruction.com to get fitted real nice!
A special thank you goes out to photographer David Cortes for making our models and new pieces look so damn good! Check his work out here.
THE COVEN ventured to the ancient woods of the central coast this weekend (more on that later this week) and stumbled into its own twilight zone version of Twin Peaks. Emerging from the darkness of our campsite in the Pfeiffer Woods, we discovered that the local lodge was a spitting image of The Great Northern Hotel–complete with slick but angry owner, drunk European guests, wood paneled walls, and an eerie period soundtrack in the lobby. When we left with the wine we’d come for, we noticed the single hanging traffic light in the area, encountered the dead body of an owl, and were terrified by the otherworldly call of an animal that seemed poised to possess. When we got back to our site, a lone motorcyclist (though not as cute as James) drove past several times before vanishing into the night.
While we didn’t get any of our James wannabe, here are a couple of pictures of Kaitlyn pulling her best Laura Palmer/Annie Blackburn in the lobby…
And the real thing….
Our new fave JPOP synthesized fembot-babez! WE.CAN’T.STOP.LIS-TEN-ING.

This past weekend, Echo Park Independent Co-Op presented the opening reception of 133, showcasing the creations of the super-talented Keyla Marquez of Howl, David Cortes, Andrew Cortes, and Todd Razor. Each of the 4 artists specialize in different media, enabling a spectrum that catered to every aesthetic. And we do mean spectrum. The ethereal colors in David Cortes’ glossy prints were simply awe-inspiring.
And this sense of enchantment was continued by the whimsical, shear fabrics and sweeping lengths used in several of Keyla’s creations for Howl.
Be sure to check out their work on display this month at E.P.I.C.(@ 1712 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026)
From National Geographic, to start your week off:
Seven hundred and fifty light-years from Earth, a young, sunlike star has been found with jets that blast epic quantities of water into interstellar space, shooting out droplets that move faster than a speeding bullet.
The discovery suggests that protostars may be seeding the universe with water…What’s really exciting about the discovery is that it appears to be a stellar rite of passage, the researchers say, which may shed new light on the earliest stages of our own sun’s life—and how water fits into that picture.
The water-jet phenomenon seen in Perseus is “probably a short-lived phase all protostars go through,” Kristensen said.
“But if we have enough of these sprinklers going off throughout the galaxy—this starts to become interesting on many levels.”
Indeed. More here.
Last Saturday, we ventured out to the Moon Festival in Pomona, where our shiny capes were worn during the first performance of t h e . b r e a t h. Below are some fotoz of the 1 1 : 1 1 performance, featuring kenBTS, Nikko Gray, and Iman.
THE COVEN will be out in Pomona today supporting the arts at The Moon Festival. Last night we met up with KenBTS, mastermind behind t h e . b r e a t h, at his Pomona abode to deliver some shiny custom capes to him for his first ever performance as t h e . b r e a t h. Pomona’s arts colony totally enchanted us. From walking into someone else’s house accidentally and being offered wine instead of being cussed out, to the candlelit dinner among 8 strangers who quickly became the homies, the rhythms in Pomona were right on point. No doubt the music performed today will only compliment that good vibe.
The Moon Festival is a free non-profit outdoor/indoor art and music street festival to benefit the School of Arts & Enterprise in downtown Pomona’s arts colony. The festival is happening during the Pomona art walk, today from NOW until midnight. t h e . b r e a t h ‘s stage is at 565 W 2nd Street. Hope to see you there!
