Hollywood Babylon Party and Show

POSTED BY TOBY ROBBOY ON MON, APR 7, 2014 AT 1:59 PM

On Saturday night a sizable crowd squeezed into Hollywood Babylon‘s relatively close quarters for the vintage store’s three-year anniversary party and live show featuring Ensly Mogul and Mister Saturday (who is co-owner of the store). The nerdcore duo did a set of Star Trek-based songs in a multimedia performance that incorporated video clips from the original show. While it certainly wasn’t the typical choice of entertainment for a retail party, the performance felt like a natural fit with Hollywood Babylon’s particular brand of quirk and kitsch.

The party also provided an opportunity to scope the store’s current stock, which was everything one could hope for from a funky little vintage store that specializes in unpretentious whimsy. Highlights included jewel-tone hippie dresses, an impressive collection of shoes that ranged from slinky Ferragamos to sturdy boots, and every hat one could possibly desire. Hollywood Babylon is not the most flashy or high profile retailer out there, but given their promising range of merchandise, not to mention the strong turnout of loyal customers who showed up, I think it’s safe to say they carved themselves out a very decent space in the crowded local vintage market.
