At the premiere of This Way

via Monster Children

One skateboarder, two surfers, and a stretch limo hit the East Coast of America for eight days–and the whole thing was caught on film.

Featuring Nora Vasconcellos, Laura Enever, and Jaleesa Vincent (and presented by Pabst Blue Ribbon and Patti People), This Way premiered at 1700 Naud last night before a huge and wildly enthusiastic audience. Rounding out the A+ viewing experience were cold cans of PBR, hot pizza from Pizzanista!, and music by the Deap Vally, Kim And The Created, and LA Witch. It was, in word, radical.

The night really was as good as it sounds, and we’ve got the photos to prove it below. But wait! There’s more—if you’re in New York, make sure you get down to our new spot 98 Orchard (at, you guessed it, 98 Orchard Street) on May 11th at 7 pm to be treated to the epic new film, free food and beers, and a performance by Brooklyn’s best, Surfbort.

The Doors of 98 Orchard are Now Open

via Monster Children

98 Orchard is off to a strong start.

Our new NYC gallery space ( in partnership with Pabst Blue Ribbon) kicked things off with a photo exhibition titled Untitled 01, featuring work from Ryan Allan, Cheryl Dunn, Jonathan Mehring, Andrew Peters, Giovanni Reda, Paul Garrrrr, Rafael Rios, Lele Saveri, and more.

As you can see, the world-class photos drew a huge crowd that spilled out onto the street and around the corner… to the conveniently located after party spot at The Flower Shop.

Thanks to everyone who came out to christen our slick new spot, and stay tuned for exciting things to come.

1700 Naud Gets the Robbie Simon Treatment

Via Monster Children

One of the best things about having a gallery is that sometimes, if we ask really nicely, artists will agree to paint our walls.

From Gonz to Gaijin, we’ve had no shortage of incredibly talented people creating full-scale murals on the side of 1700 Naud in DTLA, a tradition that’s been continued by none other than Mr. Robbie Simon. The LA native has created work for the likes of Allah-Las, Kevin Morby and Fleet Foxes, and lent his clean composition and colour-focused designs to brands such as Stussy, Vans, and Pitchfork.

While Robbie messed around on a scissor lift and brought one of our favourite murals at 1700 Naud to life, we asked him about his distinctive colour palette, turning two-inch sketches into two-storey artworks, and how he manages to keep those luscious locks so goddamn beautiful. Check it out, up top.


SOUND FIELD VOL. ONE INSTALLATION

via Monster Children

Randy Randall from No Age has released a solo album via Dangerbird Records and we’re hosting the debut show for said album at 1700 Naud. The installation is presented by the experimental Art Collective Arthur King , as a part of an ongoing series in partnership with Dangerbird.

Randy has set up an extraordinary audio-visual installation with Aaron Farley to accompany the album release, and we think you’d have to be a bit mental if you didn’t go. Either that or you’re just busy doing other stuff. Or in jail. Or dead. Or you owe Randy money. The album is called Sound Field Volume One and it’s pretty cool. You can hear some of it by clicking play on the vid. You can also read our recent interview with Mr. Randall HERE.

Get along and hear Sound Field Volume One on March 30th at 7pm, at 1700 Naud Gallery: 1700 Naud Street Los Angeles.

10 Things I Hate With Todd Francis and Porous Walker

via Monster Children

LA artists Todd Francis and Porous Walker might share a mutual love of irreverence, bad situations and bodily functions, but don’t be fooled into thinking it’s all sunshine and rainbows.

We took the pair costume shopping in preparation for their upcoming art show FOOLS at 1700 Naud and asked them to unload some of their biggest pet peeves, and not even mayonnaise or Aerosmith made it out of the firing line. Hit play on our favourite fools above, then make sure you get to 1700 Naud in LA this Thursday night at 7 pm for the show.
