– Tuff Sissy & Co. Owner, Mat Joseph, Partners with Goorin Bros. Hat Shop to Host a Trunk Show and Silent Auction, Cocktail Reception and Live Broadcast of “A 1920s Pulp Adventure Radio Serial”, to Benefit Cancer Charity –
On Monday, June 20, 2011, from 7-10 PM, Tuff Sissy & Co., will host a live broadcast of “Tales of the Extraordinary”, a “1920s pulp adventure radio serial” performed by a cast of fully-costumed actors. The ticketed event, which serves as a benefit for Art of the Brain (UCLA Neuro-Oncology Program), will also include a cocktail reception, and trunk show and silent auction featuring the Melrose Avenue outpost of Goorin Bros. Hat Shop.
The Goorin Bros. installation at the June 20 event will reflect the aesthetic of the radio show’s era, as well as the décor of Tuff Sissy & Co.’s interior. The trunk show set-up will be a tangible “scene” in which guests can test-drive various Goorin Bros. hats.
The event will feature a hosted bar including vodka cocktails mixed with Dirty Sue Premium Olive Juice, O.N.E. Coconut Water, and sweets from the famous Magnolia Bakery. Those not in attendance at the June 20 event will be able to hear the radio show broadcast streamed live via the Internet.
Tuff Sissy & Co. was created by neighboring “Freak Chic Tattoo” (www.freakchictattoo.com) owner, Mat Joseph, and is meant to serve as a gallery and artist’s lair – a place for local tattoo artists and other talents to showcase their work, as well as mingle and share. Joseph’s motivation for the venue was to revive the Melrose art community and support both the local art movement as well as other community businesses, both old and new.
“We’re excited to host the talented cast of characters at this truly unique event, which will also raise funds for an extremely worthy cause. Our event partnership with the Melrose location of Goorin Bros. solidifies Tuff Sissy & Co.’s purpose, to strengthen the sense of community on the street, and to work together to give something back,” says Mat Joseph, owner and founder of both Freak Chic Tattoo and Tuff Sissy & Co., and tattoo and piercing industry veteran.
Tuff Sissy & Co. is located at 7367 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, 90046 (between Fuller and Martel Avenues). Showtime is 7:30 PM, and tickets ($10.00 each) will be available for sale at the door. RSVPs/reservations are highly recommended, as space is limited. For more information about the June 20 event or to RSVP, please email1316: email@example.com.
