[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Har Mar Superstar

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Har Mar Superstar

Everything is better with a sense of humor. Okay, maybe not EVERYTHING everything, but almost everything, including sweet, sensual R&B, like the kind Har Mar Superstar makes. The velvet-voiced singer does 60s soul with a smile (and a healthy sense of his own contradictions), and while he may have started out as a novelty item,...

[TO DO] WIN Tickets To See The Black Lips With The Coathangers At El Rey March 21!

[TO DO] LA: WIN Tickets To See Parquet Courts, White Fence, and Destruction Unit at The Fonda Jan 17!

On nothing, just three of the coolest people I know showing new work at one of the coolest new gallery spaces in Los Angeles. (Okay, I don’t actually know Tasya IRL, but she’s the babe to end all babes and takes the most gorgeous photos of the most gorgeous women). Anyhow, as you know, Rick...
