About a celestially-inspired music festival
A) Hi friend, daylight savings was last night (clocks changed, people stayed the same). This puts us sixty minutes closer to our third ever Six of Saturns.
B) On April 27th the moon will be half-full, the sun will be 4.2 light years away and our third annual Six of Saturns will be underway. Save the date.

About a holiday music lineup
2017 was one for the books. Hearts were broken, strange (and Stranger) things happened and a couple billion babies were born. Lucky for us, all the best songs come from trying times (see: Pain in My Heart, Lady Stardust and Both Sides Now). With that we toast to the roar of the Mississippi and hearts growing ten times in size. Join us.
About a little shop from Marfa
We’re peddlers of keepsakes with items ranging from scented oils and incense matches to unique adornments and ceramics. We come from a place where Yucca plants outnumber people and the black top races the horizon. We’re interested in dream interpretations, one of a kind jewels and found treasures. Our friends are creators of all kinds, from all places. We support their arts by sharing them with you.
From the Atwater Village duo who brought you Wine + Eggs comes the surrealist shop of your dreams. Creative entrepreneur Monica Navarro (Wine & Rock Shop, Individual Medley) together with spatial designer and artist Adi Goodrich (Sing-Sing Studio) have collaborated on a new storefront in Atwater Village called DREAMS — a place where reality becomes what you dream of.
Inspired by dreams and the surrealist art movement, DREAMS aims to unlock the door of your unconscious mind through an inventive and experimental shopping experience that blurs the lines between real and unreal, this world and another.
Smack dab in the middle of an unnerving pandemic, the thought of escaping to find yourself someplace marvelously different felt right, and practically came to Monica Navarro in a dream. After closing the East-LA staple that was Individual Medley — Monica's beloved lifestyle store of ten years — she proposed a new idea to her recent creative partner Adi Goodrich: to start over in a playful, transcendental way. Having worked together earlier this year on Wine + Eggs — a fine foods and natural wine neighborhood market — the two leapt into the wonderful unknown of something new.
Surrealist imagery. That was the first thing Adi noticed from the reference images shared by Monica’s team at the start of this new endeavor. Inspired by this, Adi dug into the notion of daydreams — what it feels like to doze off into the warm and golden oblivion, if only for a moment. In designing the space, a cloud-like anchor was tethered to the feeling of light, an ethereal atmosphere.
As you walk through the space, narratives unfold like layers of a cakey time machine. The ceiling is cream with a dimensional monochromatic mural of motifs that tip a hat to Monica's past lives — an egg for Wine + Eggs, florals and leaves for her ongoing collaboration with florist Yasmine, and a knot to symbolize the rewarding struggles of entrepreneurship. Tiled with a Japanese sage-colored mosaic, an archway was designed, transforming the space from a long highway-like layout to an intentional space with dimensions and textures shape-shifting throughout.
Using color to evoke a feeling of comfort, Adi bathed the first half of the store in warm hues of peaches and terracotta. As you travel to the back of the space, you're guided by a large blue rock as you pass through green and yellow before finding yourself in an intimate, almost spiritual, evenly lit space that embraces you in blue from the walls to the soft carpet at your feet. Look up, and you’ll see a custom illuminated sky drop ceiling with printed plexiglass.
