#OIH2015: Highlights from Day 2
November 7, 2015
Friday, November 6 was day two of the Only in Hollywood Music + Arts Festival, featuring bands, artists, an outdoor movie and more! The festival continues all throughout the weekend, but here are some highlights from the second day.
Burnt Reynolds DJ Set at Space15Twenty
Once again, Space15Twenty hosted a free reception in the courtyard, with DJ Burnt Reynolds spinning and free beer! There will be two more evening receptions, on Saturday and Sunday from 5-8pm.
Thaddeus Hunter Smith’s “Inspired by Passion” Pop-Up at The Taft Building
Thad Smith has been a fixture in the Hollywood community for years, having owned and operated The Music Box at the Fonda Theatre and serving on numerous boards and organizations for years (including The Hollywood Property Owners Alliance). But on display tonight was evidence of Smith’s artistic side, with a staggering display of many beautiful large and small scale works of art! The VIP reception was well attended, but if you missed it, feel free to drop by the pop up all weekend long.
Midnight Spaghetti and the Chocolate G-Strings at The Record Parlour
This four piece eclectic band got the Record Parlour hopping with their old-school, saxophone-driven funk. The genre-bending band filled the room with a tight, energetic set of upbeat tunes.
Slim Jefferson at Co-LAb Pop-Up Gallery
Highland-Park based Co-LAb gallery took over a storefront on Cahuenga for the duration of the festival, bringing a unique curation of works by local artists with a frivolous and funky sense of style. Slim Jefferson and friends filled the gallery with hip hop beats.
Rüfüs Du Sol at The Fonda Theatre
The Fonda was packed with hot and sweaty young people with one thing on their minds: dancing to the chill electronic beats of Australian superstars Rüfüs Du Sol! The crowd went nuts for the hypnotic and melodic indie dance-pop and by the end of the set, when keyboardist Jon George thanked the enthusiastic crowd but stated that he was missing his little sister’s 21st birthday back down under. The audience was more than happy to wish her a happy birthday via cell phone video before the band closed out their set with a two-song encore.
The Vibrometers at Saint Felix
The Vibrometers brought their brand of raw, unfiltered funk music to an appreciative late-night audience at Saint Felix. The LA-based quintet brought the energy up for an extended set that got the entire place moving to their grooves!
