EXPOSITION PARK—Between the too-good-to-be-true line up that includes FKA Twigs, Chet Faker, Belle and Sebastian, and some dude named Morissey (!!!), vendors like Goorin Brothers, La Bomba Vintage, and Thread Riot, and the impressive assortment of food (including vegan) offerings, it would be a hell of an understatement to say we're psyched about this Saturday and Sunday's FYF Fest. All that said, there are still a few tickets left up for grabs. 2-day general admission ($175) and 2-day VIP tickets ($329) are still available. Grab yours before they're gone by visiting the purchase page here. Now onto planning that killer festival ensemble...

SILVER LAKE—Architecture and design team Bojána Bányász and Donatella Cusmá of Claret Cup have been sharing their map-a-porter—or wearable maps—via their online shop and you may have even caught them at this summer's Renegade Craft Fair.  Now the duo is heading to the Los Angeles County Store this Wednesday night for a unique interactive event that promises to share their work in an entirely new way. From 7-9pm, the gift shop specializing in locally made goods hosts the opening for an installation by Bányász and Cusmá in which a beautifully made, perforated map of Los Angeles will be displayed for viewers to take a portion, with which they can create their own wearable piece. The reception will also include complimentary cocktails made using M. Greenwood Jams.
