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.

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!
from last night
Two things that are making us infinitely happy on this fine Sunday: the above gif, and this article from NPR (you can listen to it, too) on the use of NASA satellites aiding in the possible discovery of ancient Egyptian pyramids buried under sand for thousands of years. The connection between space technology and the cosmically aligned and inspired pyramids just feels so right…kind of like how wearing our Pyramid hologram necklace does… (MORE HOLOGRAMS IN THE SHOP SOON, PROMISE)
We’re not ones to brag…..but seriously. If Refinery 29 says we’re a hot sale, you should come to the flea market on Sunday. Don’t you want to be decked out in “gorgeous,” “head-turning” wares?
