Today’s music is We Got the Beat by the Los Angeles band The Go-Go’s, the first all-female group to write their own music and play their own instruments to hit No. 1 on the record charts 38 years ago:

Today, Korean K-pop group Twice is one of the most popular all-female acts in the world. Here is a song they recorded partly at my Angel store and the surrounding Gastown area:

The Spice Girls were the most successful commercial “girl” group of all time.

Gastown Unplugged music series, Summer 2020.

Gastown Unplugged is a free outdoor concert series that will be in full swing this weekend. Many of the musicians will be playing in front of our store in the City-of-Vancouver’s new Maple Tree Square Pop-Up Plaza, which was created by blocking off traffic on Carrall Street, which runs on the west side of Angel.

There are four new outdoor patios  on Carrall for the Irish Heather, L’Abatoir, The Greek and the Blarney Stone. With all the new patios in Gastown, we now have 500 outdoor seats. We’ve dubbed it “Patiotown” for the summer.

Here’s a sampling of our new arrivals designed by the zany Ms. Makaroff, who unveiled this collection last year at the Miami Art Basil inside an inflatable vagina that Miranda designed and Desigual built for her.

This week I painted a number of kids shirts for custom orders. I only had time to paint one adult shirt – the Angel Heart (below) that I painted on the outside of the store during the pandemic shutdown. It’s for sale in the store.

As part of the Gastown Unplugged music series this week, a young guitarist named @lennypallersteinguitar played a cool version of this Michael Jackson song from 1979:

I know, it’s a bad transition but here’s Cajun tunesmith Tony Joe White playing his 1969 hit, Polk Salad Annie (southerners call it polk “sallet” but maybe the guy doing the song title thought Tony was sayin’ salad. It happened to this Dutch band, George Baker Selection, whose lead singer sang “little greenbacks” – slang for American currency – but the song was released as Little Green Bag:

Did someone say Miranda! Here’s the latest from the Argentina duo:

You won’t see this lineup again performing the Bob Dylan song My Back Pages:

Desigual by Miranda Makaroff SS2020 collection now at Angel

The highlight of this week’s new arrivals from Desigual is the Miranda Makoroff collection for Spring-Summer 2020. We don’t have a huge selection of new pieces, but we have two jackets, capri pants, palazzo pants and an erotic pink T-shirt designed by the creative and zany Ms. Makaroff.

If you’ve never heard of her, she’s a Barcelona artist, model and clothing designer. Last December, she unveiled her new SS2020 collection inside an inflatable vagina that she designed and Desigual built for the Miami Art Basel.

Her prints are taken from her paintings, which are saturated with dazzling colours celebrating women and the pleasures they experience in freedom and in communion with nature.

She calls it “Celebrating Eve.” Miranda designed this collection on the island of Ibiza, Spain, where Desigual first began in 1984; the company now is based in Barcelona, with its headquarters located on Barceloneta Beach, next to the W Hotel.

Miranda with her erotic sculpture inside the inflatable vagina.

First we’ll show you the new Miranda Makaroff pieces we have in stock, then a few of her designs that we ordered but by the time our order was ready to go, we lost a number of styles and sizes.

Also below are a number of the Desigual styles that we’ve restocked for men & women, and we have a few new styles, including a  dress designed by Christian Lacroix.

All Desigual is on sale 30% to 50% off at Angel, Vancouver’s only boutique with a huge selection of the Barcelona brand.

Here’s a sampling of the new arrivals at Angel:

I picked the song by Argentina duo Miranda! above because of its name, upbeat message and I love pink and green together, like this mint green VW van in front of little pink houses.

Little Richard, a rock and roll pioneer, died recently. This song is from 64 years ago:

Prince was a mix of Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix, Sam Cooke and James Brown. Here is a new video, recorded live in 1999, released to mark his passing four years ago:

I saw Prince perform twice. He was a showman, which this video captures perfectly:

What the World Needs Now – not just for some but for everyone:

Jackie wrote and recorded this song, When You Walk in The Room, in 1963:

We stole dance moves from this video. Hey. it was 1063.

Gastown, 1886.

Angel is located at No. 2 Powell Street in the Gastown district of Vancouver, Canada. We’re  on the corner of Powell & Carrall Street in Maple Tree Square, where Vancouver began. The historic photo (left) shows what the location of my store looked like in 1886 (click on photo to enlarge).

Angel also specializes in custom handpainted clothing.

Since everyone has been in isolation for two months, musicians have been recording music at home and posting online. Here is Neil Finn (formerly of Crowded House & Split Enz) singing David Bowie‘s Heroes:

Here is Neil with his former band Crowded House performing Don’t Dream It’s Over; that’s Neil’s son Liam on lead guitar:

And here’s an oldie, recorded “live in isolation” by The Doobie Brothers:

Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot wrote this song in 1968 about the riots in Detroit, following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.  Richard Nixon campaigned on Law & Order and won the presidency then. So what if we changed this song to Black Day in June and substitute Minneapolis for the Motor City?

New Angel business hours during April & May

Angel is still open for business, but with shortened operating hours using social distancing rules – from noon to 5 p.m. each day, including Sunday, during April & May.

I’m working inside, catching up on hand-painting shirts for customers. We offer private shopping  by appointment – call 604-681-0947.

At the beginning of March, Angel received its latest shipment of the Desigual Spring-Summer 2020 collection. We have some fabulous pieces for summer, including swimsuits for men and women. And some great kids clothes.

The Desigual SS2020 collection for men, women & kids now is on sale 30% off.

All Desigual from previous seasons is on sale 40% to 50% off at Angel.

We will also match any online price of Desigual.

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit Vancouver in March, all bars and restaurants were ordered closed, thousands of people were laid off and people began working from home to try to contain the spread of the virus.

Then someone smashed our Angel store window. The same $1,000 window that someone threw a brick through a month earlier.

We immediately decided to board up  all our big storefront windows – the building was built of timbers and brick in 1886 and has an 18-foot-high ceiling

Breece Austin painting a portrait of federal Health Minister Patty Hajdu.

Before I could even paint the plywood, Kim Briscoe from Kimprints across the street in the Europe Hotel started hiring artists to paint murals on her plywood. Kim asked if one could come over and paint on our store. Sure, I said. The young artist, Breece Austin (Instagram: @breecesartpieces98) painted a portrait of Canada’s Health Minister, Patty Hajdu. The next day, I painted around it and painted the rest of the plywood a midnight blue to match the exterior walls.

I spent all last week painting some murals of my own to try to brighten up the Gastown neighbourhood and try to lift spirits. A flaming heart. Two overlapping hearts that blend colours in the middle. An Angel Heart with wings, known in Mexico as a Sacred Heart.

The finished collaboration mural. Be Kind. Stay Positive. We will get through this together. angelvancouver photo.

After  I finished painting, I felt Breece’s mural needed something on the right side. So I added a short dialogue-bubble message: BE KIND.

And while painting outside, I asked Gastown neighbours passing by if they would pose in front of one of my painted hearts. This started my Gastown Neighbours photo series (see below), which I’ll add to as I take more photos.

So while Angel is temporarily boarded up, we’re still open from business. Call 604-681-047 or email me at jackiehaliburton@hotmail.com

Angel offers curb-side pickup, next-day local delivery and free shipping in North America.  We also ship worldwide at cost.

Here are some photos of our Angel store murals:
