I FINALLY went to Pehrspace, after hearing about this venue for like a year now. Even in Oakland my friends talked about it. Last night they had a slumber party. I wore my PJs - well, ok a lingerie unitard with a black skirt, but it’s kinda sleepwear. There were bands, movies and lots of free food and libations. Honestly, this event was smaller than I was hoping. However, it was kind of quaint in its intimacy. In the middle of the room was foam padding, blankets, sleeping bags and pillows for the event and everyone, including the bands, sat on the floor.

I Hate You Just Kidding played as well as BoxViolet. Both bands were made up of a female vocalist and male guitarist couple. The couples were obviously crazy about eachother and would sneak sidelong lovey glances at the other. It was pretty adorable - unless you’re single (like me), in which case it made you hate your life. Both female vocalists had beautiful voices. BoxViolet had a line that particularly resonated with me, which went something like, “How can you change your mind, when we are two of a kind?”

There was pizza, apple pie, apple cider, beer, wine and more goodies. After the bands we watched Drive, Princess Bride and a Christmas Carol - all night. 10pm-10am. In the twilight hours the VJ put on some very strange church infomercial selling books and making movie critiques about Japanese directors. I don’t understand the correlation. Maybe it was supposed to be ironic? Mostly I just found it profoundly annoying and my brain was too confused trying to figure it out to sleep. I lucidly rested cuddling this hipster boy I semi-knew. My friend called the event a social experiment. Very apt.

FYI: The location is way sketch. I followed my GPS and found myself on this alley-like street. I totally thought my GPS had gotten me lost. However, I drove into the nearest parking lot. I didn’t see the spot and was about to leave when I decided to look at the signs. There was a little sign for the place. Can you see it in the pic? The entrance is semi-obstructed by trees and is in the corner of the strip mall. However, it’s strange location allows for a lot of parking. Barely anywhere has a parking lot in LA, so that was a pleasant surprise.
