Last Friday while LA got it’s rain on and I laid in bed with a case of just being a woman my friend’s new store launched a Cheap Monday/WKND pop up shop in the Choose Chinatown space (in where else, Chinatown). When I first moved to LA the cats at Welcome Hunters were the first people approached and said the words “Do you want a DJ?” I hesitated using this question in this town for many reasons a few being I didn’t come to LA to be just a DJ and get into some magical invisible and constantly rotating scene. I wanted a life with good food, movies & cuddling. Lately which I’ve been doing lots of (and yes, another added reason why Friday night probably didn’t see me). Either way I saw their flyer for the night they were doing at the Mountain Bar a year or so ago and we ended up connecting and they liked what I played and for about 6 months straight I was djing their parties along with the cats from Lion’s Den.
Last weekend the friends n shopowners Lion’s Den & Welcome Hunters came together to host & create the Cheap Monday & WKND concept store for the next two seasons…
