FoundTrack Collective Art Show: ZLA's "Strength in Numbers"

Join us Friday Feb 17th for the official opening of our new FoundTrack Collective mixed-use creative space at 370 1/2 N La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles (directly next door to Roger Room). Over the next few months we'll be hosting a variety of artist showcases, pop-up shops and more...

The first installation we're featuring is a new collection of work from our pal, artist ZLA, entitled "STRENGTH IN NUMBERS"... we dropped by the space during setup last night, and we're stoked to say it's going to be really amazing. In addition to a collection of 10 new large format one-off pieces, ZLA will also have a collection of limited tees and prints available as well.

We'd love to have you guys stop by for the opening Fri 2/17 from 8-11pm and enjoy some great visuals and a complimentary cocktail courtesy of our friends at Kanon Vodka... we're convinced they're the hippest vodka brand we've ever met- (checkout their blog for evidence). See everyone there!... in the meantime, here's a little sneak peak at one of the pieces from setup:
