Things you should know:

1. It’s Vancouver’s only club built for sound, boasting a $250,000 sound system, one of the biggest in North America.

2. Shepard Fairey has an amazing 60 ft installation going all the way up the stairs (the widest he’s ever made).

3. My friend Kenta Goto (Brknhome) and Rick Klotz (Freshjive) are designing crazy private rooms at the back of the club.

4. There will be a Booooooom party here in the future.

Smile On Your Brother!

I went down to Livestock for the Smile On Your Brother show last night and snapped some photos. It’s up for two more nights – so you better catch it while you can. If you see a board you want, you can contact Annie or Mike here and place a bid. The auction closes near the end of October.
