Claw Money is a legendary Graffiti Artist, best known for her signature icon, a paw with three claws. This paw could be spotted all over New York during her days rolling with the prestigious graff crews, TC5, 5C, and her own crew, PMS. Until 2008, she was the Fashion Editor for Swindle Magazine[...]
Keeping up with Claw these days is no easy task. Between maintaining her eponymous clothing and accessories line, which has a celebrity cult following (M.I.A., Kayne West, Amy Winehouse, Santo Gold, Pete Wentz, and Cameron Diaz, just to name a few) and writing furiously for her irreverent fashion blog Blogue[...]
Some of Ms. Money’s recent projects include Doug Pray’s 2006 graffiti documentary Infamy and her first monograph, Bombshell: The Life and Crimes of Claw Money, published by PowerHouse books. The 2007 book, which archives a collection of graffiti, high style, and wild times, is already in its second edition printing. Most recently Claw has been on a world tour promoting two collaborative sneakers with athletic giant, Nike. The two styles, a peacock feather-adorned Vandal and lace-infused Blazer are Nike’s first artist releases for women by a woman, setting a new precedent for female streetwear collaborations in an extremely male dominated market segment[...]

Anthem Magazine’s charity shindig serves up an hour of cheaper-than-coke V2 energy vodka, which, unlike Sparks, has yet to be banned by fascists. Here We Go Magic’s Luke Temple shows off the sweet voice that gives Sufjan Stevens such a boner, with Cale Parks, Clash-resurrectors The So So Glos, and Pitchfork-approved band Real Estate completing the picture.
DKMS promises giveaways from Anthem, Tiffany’s (yes, that Tiffany’s), Adult Swim, and Mr. Andrew WK himself.
Here’s your chance to feel a little less guilty about getting black-out drunk– just sign up to be a bone marrow donor on your way out the door! Seriously though, it’s a good cause to cross the bridge for.
Get to Santos Party House (100 Lafayette St, SoHo) at 7pm and enjoy that hour long (Taurine filled) vodka happy hour! $10 @ the door.
Oh, and if you aren’t already checking out the So So Glos tonight @ Mercury Lounge, and can’t make it on Saturday, be sure to catch these guys on May 23rd at the (looking for roomies) Market Hotel with Northside FREEburg showcasers Air Waves.

After spending most of my morning and early afternoon listening to Sibylle Baier‘s Colour Green, I finally decided to move on to happier tunes from peeps such as Junior Boys (who, if you’re interested, are playing tonight at Webster Hall), but somehow found myself stumbling across this instead:

DM Stith is back with BMB, a seven song follow up EP to his heart shattering debut Heavy Ghost, due out July 1st on Asthmatic Kitty. The EP includes a couple of remixes of “BMB”, including one by Son Lux, as well as covers of Randy Newman’s “Suzanne” and The Ronette’s “Be My Baby”. And since we all know how I love me some musical masochism, it’s perfect for a terrential downpour sort of day.
