We’re excited for a just-announced FYF Fest pre-show to take place just a night before the start of the hipster festival – on Friday, September 2 our friends Glass Candy and Chromatics will take the stage at Silver Lake night club Los Globos. DJs GODDOLLARS, Chris Cruse and Doctor Golden are also included on the bill.

Now, this brings a question to mind – why Los Globos? This is not a venue I see FYF Fest scoping out, in fact, just perusing the Yelp reviews (and knowing the venue’s reputation) this is a salsa and merengue venue, not exactly the indie type.

Perhaps this is the new work of entrepreneur and Echo Park resident Mitchell Frank (the Echo, Echoplex, El Prado, etc.) – whose split with partners at Spaceland opened up the search for a new venture in this part of LA. And although there are no official confirmations of new ownership yet, there is a rumor of new owners and some renovations made to the interior. We’ll have to check it out on Friday night at the show!

Tickets are $10 advance, $12 at the door. Click here to purchase ahead of time, and here for the event info.

Los Globos is located at 3040 W Sunset Blvd.

Echo Park resident Isabelle Dahlin opened up her new store, deKor, at the end of June just next door to the new restaurant Mohawk Bend on Sunset Boulevard. Promising a variety of candles, pottery, furniture, art, pillows and miscellaneous items, the theme is an eclectic array of Swedish stylings that will make you want to redecorate.

On her blog, Isabelle writes: “Ever since I was a child, I have always felt that your living environment greatly impacts how you feel about your life and how you treat those around you. This space is a reflection of my Scandinavian roots, my travels and my beautiful life in Los Angeles.”

Isabelle told us that not only does she live in Echo Park, but she’s in LOVE with Echo Park. “I wanted my store here because I love the people that live here and deKor is a very eclectic place so I think it fits with this amazing neighborhood,” she said in an email.

Prices range from $20 for the little stuff, and up to $4,000 for the larger furniture items (hey, it’s art!). Her favorite piece in the store? Reclaimed swings designed by deKor that can decorate your home on the inside or the outside.

By the way, LOVE those potted succulents outside the store!

Store Hours are Tuesday to Sunday from 11:00 am – 8:00 pm.
