Limited Perspective Playhouse, Fall Fashion Magazine

Posted By on Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 2:49 AM

While leafing through the ad-heavy September issues of Vogue (798 pages, suitable for killing small rodents) and In Style (a mere 486), our eyes were caught by two ads, both posed in front of old-fashioned restaurant signboards.

In a double-truck ad for Longchamp purses in In Style, Kate Moss (whose well-publicized drug and romantic problems seem to have done nothing but improve her supermodel standing), is sitting with a rocker-boy pal at the Cafe de Flore, where we can see that a club sandwich goes for 28 euros, or approximately 40 dollars, oy. In Vogue, two bohemians wearing Converse sneakers designed by John Varvatos lounge around a restaurant whose offerings include SPOILED HAM, TRAMP SALAD, and LEGS AND EGGS. Yum? Umm. Hmmm. Food for thought. --Meredith Brody

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
