After a Fashion

Peek into the future of death! At least that's what your Style Avatar calls it. While you're at it, peek into the future of a cool event or two, coming to a club near you.

After a Fashion

MORTAL THOUGHTS: Be sure to drop by for a peek into the future of death. Perhaps you'd fancy your coffin to be cardboard-brown and stamped with "Return to Sender"? There's no reason to be buried in one of those tired old caskets that everyone else has. Let your casket truly reflect what was important in your life: sports. Imagine: "This Art Casket® captures the tradition of the Razorback fan!" Or better yet, the maroon model: "Expressive of strong, lifelong traditions, this tribute to Texas A&M is meaningful to all Aggies." Why wait until you're dead to enjoy it? Buy one for every member of your family now!

NOTES FROM BMI: Our friend Hanna Pantle of BMI reports to us from the BMI Pop Awards about the adoring crowd as Paul Simon performed "Slip Sliding Away" at the end of the tribute to him. Joss Stone ditched her shoes the entire night, running around barefoot. Glamorous Yolanda Adams appeared in a floor-length beige, tan, and brown dress; she is absolutely gorgeous, over 6 feet tall. She sang "Bridge Over Troubled Water," which brought the entire room to its feet, including an enthusiastic Paul Simon. She was absolutely spectacular both appearancewise and vocally. A truly amazing singer. Maroon 5 sported suits. Lil Jon took his pimp cup with him everywhere he went (it is solid gold) and handed out cans of his Crunk!!! energy drink to all the attendees. At 100 milligrams of caffeine and a healthy dose of horny goat weed, not only does it keep you up, but it supposedly has aphrodisiac properties. Crunk on that… Fashion awards go to Brian Wilson with his suede Western shirt that was reminiscent of a Bob Wills shirt. Suits, suits, and more suits on the rock bands… Mario Winans was sporting an incredible silver and diamond cross.

OUT: Tonight, Thursday, May 26, 9pm, Lounge Productions and JohnGomi present Passport, featuring the Tosca CD Release Party at Latitude 30 (512 San Jacinto). Hosted by Architektur and JohnGomi with the Rev. Pain Hernandez & Anatan, the event will feature plenty of giveaways and drink specials all evening. For more about Tosca, go to… Friday, May 27, Strangetribe Productions brings you Some Like It Hott, a patio party at the Velvet Spade (10th & Red River, formerly the Caucus Club). Austin's Alpha Rhythm is starting the night with their jazzy, atmospheric dub, funk sound, and their set will be followed by a fashion show. Afterward, UK funk, soul, hip-hop DJ Scott Hendy, aka Boca 45, will be playing it eclectic and funky … just the way you like it.
