SUNSET STRIP—We got a late notice about what looks like an amazing trunk show at LIVE! on Sunset: Sachin + Babi, who did those crazy gold harem pants that were featured on the Zoe Report last week. The event is today, from 3pm to 7pm. 8801 W. Sunset Blvd. [Racked Inbox]
DOWNTOWN—Even we can't paraphrase Reverend Billy and the Life After Shopping Gospel Choir to make it sound more interesting that it is: "Reverend Billy and the joyous 25-voice Life After Shopping Gospel Choir draw upon their “retail interventions,” staged inside Wal-Marts and Starbucks, to transform consumer nightmares and biblical narratives into an inspirational showdown?Reverend Billy proselytizes with supreme power and delivers the tenets of his Church of Stop Shopping with such infectious passion that your experience of shopping may never be the same." WHOA. Get some Reverend Billy at REDCAT on Thursday, Oct. 21. Show's at 8:30pm. 631 West 2nd St. [Racked Inbox]
