From Leigh Feldman:
Portland Weekend EventsThings I'm currently jocking…

1) Monster Vintage would happily like to extend 30% off shopping on their website (monstervintage.com) for all people that are part of LifeisaParty. They are locally based, have an enormous warehouse full of goodies and if you go in to shop in person, they'll create your very own customized pandora music station to enjoy while you try on clothes. Go to the site and type in the word “MONSTER” at checkout or call 503.236.7542 to schedule a shopping appointment at their closed-door store.

2) Free music ish… Cousin Cole's ‘Major Rager' Mix. It's the B-more electro club mix made for his European tour. It's heavy on the bass, but definitely a booty pop party starter — http://www.zshare.net/audio/572137862fe51f38/ … Damu the Fudgemunk's Same Beat EP. It's perfect for the summer barbq party — http://www.mediafire.com/?mkwdeaykdmk … DJ Jayceeoh's Pop Models Mix — http://www.zshare.net/audio/60185037c894ccca/ … If these doesn't get you excited for this weekend I don't know what to say.

Free entry to Massive on Saturday night at the Crown Room. Come to the door before 10pm and says LifeisaParty and slide right in with no problems. There will be music, a fashion show, a dance party, cheap beer and lots of fun. What else could you ask for besides all this and free entry? Cupcakes. You could ask for cupcakes.

Life is a party, everyone is just waiting to be invited.

See you all out and about! Leigh Feldman
