Soul Jam feat. the Stylistics and the Dramatics

Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE

800 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90015

7:30pm

The Stylistics was formed in Philadelphia, PA in 1966 from two groups, "The Percussions" and "The Monarchs".  When members from each group were drafted or went on to further their education, the remaining members under the guidance of their English teacher Beverly Hamilton joined forces and changed the name to "The Stylistics".  After working locally for a number of years, the group was approached by Bill Perry who asked if they would be interested in recording.  Their first song "You're a Big Girl Now" was recorded at Virtue Recording Studio, a local studio in Philadelphia. After the success of "You're A Big Girl Now", Avco wanted to naturally follow up with an album release. Hit veteran producer Tom Bell was contacted and was hired to produce the group's first album. The album was entitled "The Stylistics" and from that album came "Stop, Look, Listen to your Heart", "You Are Everything" and "Betcha By Golly Wow".  The success of the first album was phenomenal for that time along with an unheard release of six singles in total. The ball continued to roll with the release of their second album entitled "Round Two". The Stylistics were becoming known as the Philly group with the sweet love songs. 

The Dramatics have been one of the most prolific, consistently entertaining groups of the last three decades. Another of the great non-Motown Detroit groups formed in the late 60s. Most know for hits "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" "In The Rain" and "Toast to the Fool" among many others that remain in active play on various stations for many years.

The Standard, Downtown LA

550 South Flower Street, Los Angeles, 90071

8:00pm

Tiphanie Brooke aka Anti-Girl puts on her first glow-in-the-dark art exhibit at the Standard in Downtown. In 2009, Brooke turned her hearts collection (2008 – 2010) into various large installations, with the first unraveling at Phoenix Design Week (AIGA). Tiphanie adapted these pieces for both public and private — collectors and clients. As well as designing and building an installation for her solo show, a heart condition.

In early 2010 she began experimenting with manual photography and by April 2010, she had won an award from Phoenix College for a deconstructed photo she took, which was later displayed at the Phoenix Art Museum.

In May 2012 she moved back to Los Angeles (Tiphanie is originally from San Pedro, California), to attend Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, where she is currently earning her BFA in graphics. Since returning, she created, "The Heart of LA" (icon) which she originally designed as a response to Milton Glaser's I heart NY and as a further adaption to her lovelife heart. Her LA heart has attracted a lot of attention and is quickly becoming an "urban art icon" around the city of angels. - discoverLA
