Posted on by Andy Kaminski Posted in Featured | 83 Comments

(Austin, Tx) – With the Mayan Doomsday nearly upon us, the far new east side hot spot-Frontier Bar, felt the time was right to add some “Day of the Dead” themes to a fashion show during this ghoulish season.
And tonight at the Dia de Los Muertos Fashion Runway Party, they summon upon all dead ATX’ns to stumble to Frontier Bar.

Open the gates of the underworld.  Literally, the venue is working with some well-known local independent event throwers to produce a make shift spooky under world gate that leads to onto the runway where 100′s of dead walkers will strut their dead swagger for fun and for the chance to win prizes.

Indeed, the floral headdresses and traditional Mexican colors will pay homage to the respected dead, but some plan to take it into their own vision and bring back the 60′, 70′, 80′s mullets, and much more in dead fashion.

And just to keep things interesting, every model that sign’s up to strut their deadliness on the runway will be rewarded with complimentary libations.  So sign up (8pm-1030pm), get a drink, and then prepare to sashay on the runway when it kicks off at 11pm.

“Maybe the Myans are right and the world will end this year.  But at least we can have cute clothes!”

Event Details:

Tonight/Tuesday Oct 30th -Doors at 8pm with Complimentary Bevs till they run out.
There will be  a runway/catwalk built for the walking dead and everyone is encouraged to sign up and get their dead on.

Prizes for Most Creative and Unique in many different categories.

Here are the categories of the competition:

Types Of Mohawk Hair

Hair is an essential part of every person’s style and personality. One hairstyle that has made so many ripples in the fashion world is the Mohawk. It used to be only associated to punk, but over the years, it has become a worldwide fashion phenomenon. What most people do not know is that Mohawk hairstyles require some special maintenance.There are different types of Mohawk hair and each has its own inherit place in fashion. Maintaining the Mohawk look needs a bit of maintenance. However, in the end you will get a look that shouts individuality more than any kind of hairstyle there is.

  

Fanhawk

Fanhawk hairstyleThe first type of Mohawk is the long and pointy or more commonly known as the Fanhawk. This style requires a long to be molded into pointy strands. The pointy strands point upwards and these can be either spread out or concentrated on a certain spot. Rock and punk stars usually chose the spread out type of Mohawk since it is the one that really looks very rebel-like.

  

Faux-Hawk

Blake Lewis faux-hawkThe faux-hawk is the most common and famous Mohawk style. This is the hairstyle used by British superstar David Beckham. The hair needs to be at least 3-4 inches long and it will be molded together to form a spiky fan look. The sides can either be shaved off or not. Aside from being widely known, it is also very easy to maintain since.

  

Liberty Spike

Liberty spike mohawkThe third type of Mohawk is the liberty-spike. This type of style does require a bit of maintenance, but it is the most unique out of all the styles out there. Unlike the Fanhawk, this type of style needs the spikes to be very long and strong. It is called the liberty-spike since the spikes looks like the crown worn by the statue of liberty.

 

Rayhawk

Boys rayhawksThe fourth type of Mohawk is the Rayhawk. This style is very well associated with the Tampa bay rays baseball team. The middle part of the hair is shaved, but it is relatively longer compared to the sides. This will form a strip like effect on the hair, which would give its Mohawk like effect.

Dreadhawk

DreahawkThe Dreadhawk is a type of Mohawk that requires the hair to be very long. As its name implies, the long hair is dreadlocked or matted coiled and tied like a ponytail. Unlike typical dreadlocks synonymous to reggae, the Dreadhawk pushes it to the next level by shaving off the sides and front part of the head. One can either dye it to any color or just leave it the way it is.

Some Less Known Ones

Sanjaya mohawkThese are just among the most common kinds of Mohawk hairstyles that one can choose from. There are some less known ones like the CrossHawk, Frohawk, and many others. Each has its place in the fashion world and everyday life. Each style also has its own statement and message. One can go all out and go for the libery-spike or the fanhawk and be different from the rest. Regardless the type of style one chooses, the Mohawk is definitely the 21st century hairstyle everybody is craving for.

G-Eazy Takes The World By Storm, One Beat at a Time

Posted on by Andy Kaminski Posted in Featured | 48 Comments


Gerald Earl Gillum (born May 24, 1989) better known by his stage name G-Eazy is an American songwriter, rapper, and producer most known for his sample of the 1960s hit Runaround Sue.  With success from his earlier mixtapes, Gillum continued to release further songs, notably “Waspy” and “Candy Girl“.  The latter as of 2011 having attained over 400,000 plays via Myspace.  Continuing to combine both his studies and music, 2009 saw G-Eazy nominated for the annual mtvU Best Music on Campus Woodie.

G-Eazy hits the stage tonight at Beauty Ballroom for an all ages show supporting the NYC based rapper and songwriter Hoodie Allen presented by Austin’s popular show throwers Knuckle Rumbler.  Tickets are going fast kids and at midnight his new album “Must Be Nice” hits the universe, so we’re pretty damn sure Mr. G-Eazy with have something hidden up his sleevy.

G was super cool enough to take some time out of his bizzay schedule to answer some things that many inquiring young minds have been wanting to know.

HOW DID THE NAME G-EAZY COME ABOUT?
Well my real name is Gerald, so it naturally just came from that. Plus it sounded cool.

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO THESE DAYS?
I’m always listening to The Beatles and Johnny Cash. As far as new stuff, I’m listening to the new XX.  I’ve also been jamming out a new compilation from Kanye West’s Label, G.O.O.D. Music.

HOW DID YOU ENTER THE RAP SCENE?
Growing up in the Bay area that’s all that was around. That’s what all my friends were into and what we all got into together when we played music.

OBAMA OR ROMNEY? WHY?:
Obama all the way. His polices hit home. Obama-care takes care of my Mom.

SAMPLING 50′S BEAT MUSIC?
I listen to certain elements in the songs to see what I can sample, all that 50′s pop and doo-wop has a lot of rhythm behind it. I’m always interested in trying to bring together certain styles and elements together to see what works. It is always interesting to bring together some old school with conetemprary hip hop.

TOURING VS STUDIO?
The grass is always on the greener on the side. Whenever I’m in the studio I can’t wait to get on the road and vice-versus. But I know they go hand in hand. You can’t do one without the other.

HOW FAR HAVE YOU COME, ARE YOU SATISFIED?
I feel like I’ve gone miles from then, but it’s a process.  I’m growing and evolving as an artist, and that’s going to be a continued process. Someday when I hit the peak, I will reflect and be satisfied on my accomplishments.

WHAT’S UP NEXT?
Taking over the world. I’m Releasing an album on Wednesday. Then I’m going on a headlining tour of my own to support the album. And right when that’s done, I go right back in the studio. I”ll do a few one off shows here and there and in the beginning of 2013 we’ll be gearing up for a big national tour leading directly back to Austin for SXSW.

Posted on by Andy Kaminski Posted in Featured, Slackers | Comments Off

(Frontier Bar, Austin) – Last Friday, all over Austin, many local establishments celebrated kick off parties for the 21st Annual PRIDE AUSTIN celebration, and down the road, around the corner, and outside the mayhem of downtown’s spoon-fed dirty sixth street kids,  MOUTHFEEL was setting up for what would be the most epic memorable PRIDE kickoff party the future party throwers will talk about for a very very schlong time.  IT’S A DRAG BALL Y’ALL!  And indeed it was!  With over 100 drag queens in attendance to strut their sexy glamorous bods, the objective of the night was the most well orchestrated DRAG QUEEN runway contest to boot!  Categories included: LONE STAR BIZARRE (The higher the hair the closer to the ghost of Ann Richards. Texas Icons with a twist. Mary Kay all the way.), DOMS IN SPACE (Someone call the gender police! Break out your pleather and make us beg for mercy. Your kink is our command. Open to all persuasions and dominations. Giddy up!), VOGUE BATTLE (Work what your mothers gave you. We want to see you walk, dip, and drop with next level fierceness. Dress in head to six inch heel magick.), MAGICAL REALNESS (This is for witchy bitches and weird sisters that are gonna bring the Stevie Nicks realness. Break out the Ouija board and work a plunging wizard’s sleeve. Let the dark forces be your guide.), and DRAG LEGENDS (The mother of them all. Open to all queens and kings. Full musical numbers of a cosmic nature. Take your look to the next dimension and freak this bitch out.).

The event called “Magical Realness: An Effervescent Crystal Ball & Drag Invitational was also a benefit for AIDS Services of Austin and the kick off to Austin Pride weekend. Music & beats were presented by MOUTHFEEL, CBass, and Dylan’s VIBE ZONE.
