Recap: “Legends Never Die” a Tribute to Teen Angel

1:13 PM PDT on June 22, 2015

This last Saturday night in Highland Park, shop Mi Vida hosted the “Legends Never Die” Teen Angel tribute art show. As we drove down York Blvd towards the shop, we quickly began to see the huge crowd gathered outside the venue. Beautiful Low Riders and classic cars were laying it low on the pavement as their presence graced York Boulevard, and made it feel we stepped back into the 50’s.

Everyone at the event was having such a good time as they listened to oldies being played by the FunkFreaks . Unic of the FunkFreaks kept playing all the right jams, and it seemed as if everyone in the crowd was bobbing their heads and drinking a cold one in honor of the beloved Teen Angel.  As we finally made our way through the huge crowd into the shop, we were able to check out all of the awesome art that you would imagine a Teen Angels show would have.

Right away we noticed the badass film photography by James Solano and Valerie J. Bower and the beautiful paintings and illustrations done by Chicano Wolfman, El Oms and Spr Fkr. In fact, everyone’s contribution to the show was great, each piece was different and yet paid a fitting artistic and emotional tribute to Teen Angel. L.A. Taco’s Desilu was there for the evening, and made her rounds to photograph both the crowd and the art.

Richard Castor did an excellent job curating this show, and Legends Never Die was a show and evening no one will forget-- it perfectly paid respect and homage to the legend and legacy that is Teen Angel and Teen Angels Arte. Select the link for more photos.

Ten (Mostly) Recognizable ‘Repo Man’ Locations You Can Visit 40 Years Later

The original film somehow managed to cohesively fuse weathered, jaded repo men, L.A.’s burgeoning punk scene, UFO cultists, generically-labeled food items, and nuclear proliferation into a dark comedy that is both a product of its time and yet feels somewhat timeless.
