HOLLYWOOD—Yes, art, music and shoes are reason enough to hit Space15Twenty on Saturday, when this month's pop-up dedicated to The Generic Man launches. But for an added incentive, Michel Vedette (of Paris' Le Baron nightclub) will be holding a session of his Automatic Body Dancing Club. It's kind of a hipster-approved mix of line dancing and aerobics, and awful as that sounds, we've actually experienced a 'class' before and it was ridiculously fun. The dance action starts at 8pm, but the party starts at 7 in case you want to, you know, shop. [RackedWire]
VENICE—Tomorrow marks First Friday on Abbot Kinney, which means all the street's shops and galleries stay open late and throw parties. Our pick for this month is courtesy of pretty paperie Urbanic, which will be creating a massive string of flags celebrating summer in Venice. If you'd like to drop in and add your scribbles to the project, it'll be going on from 7-10pm. [RackedWire]
