Today’s music is by Van Halen, the Los Angeles band whose lead guitarist, Eddie Van Halen, wowed the world with his virtuosity. Eddie died this week.

This is the Van Halen song that exploded across the world in the 1980s.

When Quincy Jones was producing Michael Jackson‘s Thriller album in 1982, he called Eddie Van Halen to ask him to do a guitar solo. Eddie was reluctant, saying he didn’t think he was the right guitarist to play on an R&B song. Quincy told him Beat It was about being tough and Eddie would have free rein. The New York Times wrote: “Van Halen played a virtuosic, expansive solo, during which speakers in the studio control room caught fire. Eddie played on the song for free, and wasn’t billed in the album’s credits. As he told CNN in a 2012 interview, one day when he was shopping at Tower Records, “Beat It” came on and he heard a kid snorting, “Listen to this guy trying to sound like Eddie Van Halen.” (‘That is me!’ Van Halen told the kid.)”

I had never heard of Megan Thee Stallion until I saw this video, which came out last week. I love the beat, but I was hesitant about posting it. When I grew up, radio banned a Rolling Stones song because they sang “Let’s spend the night together.” You couldn’t sing about sex. Don’t Stop is blatantly sexual, but the video has a hallucinogenic 1960s topiary innocence that is so entertaining.

Toots Hibbert, of Toots & the Maytals, died recently. He was a legendary pioneer of the reggae sound from Jamaica. In fact, he released a song, Do the Reggay (as it was then spelled) in 1968 that put a name to the new music. Here is one of his classic songs:

Speaking of the 1960s, here is a video showing how to dance to the Watusi:

Here is a more modern dance video, Like Sugar by Chaka Khan:

And here’s a kaleidescopic version of the new Harry Styles song, Watermelon Sugar:

Late last year, TV show host James Corden convinced Styles to perform the song in a Los Angeles crosswalk for 30 seconds – the time it took for the traffic light to turn green.

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.

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.
