Reading Time: 5 minutesJM Weston represents the charming Parisian luxury. By bringing back the iconic “Drugstore gang”, the luxury shoes house revamped the idea of fearless youth, almost timeless and that each one of us would like to get some back. By doing this, they cleverly reintroduced the Weston woman. In the sixties, just before the French riots of 1968, this golden youth would be the most elegant and party oriented of all.

Several artists are participating to it: Alexander Apóstol, Milena Bonilla, José Dávila, Laura Gannon, Terence Gower, Pablo León de la Barra and Mateo López.

It also has an aim to initiate a dialogue between Western artists and Latin America, between First World and its distorting mirror that is Latin America. Through differentiated languages, the artists participating in this exhibition reinterpret the unpredictable dimension of modernism and reinvest the geographical and mental spaces that once inhabited this doctrine. Photos and videos witness all these changes and bring a different look on the evolution of society.

They are launching a new EP this month, more than one year after the first album. For this and more below, they are our Music band of the month. End of 2006, the group was founded under the name The Bagro’s. Since then, they have been constantly playing and pushing the limits of energy on stage. When you listen to their music, one huge influence comes to our minds: The Stooges. In deed, the same energy, an outstanding, high voltage guitar, big drums and a virtuose at the bass. It is pure, crystal clear and will definitely burst your ears. The garage rock has never been so modern and true to its roots.
