WARM UP INTERVIEW : TWO QUESTIONS FOR KELELA
Fade to Mind’s Kelela performed with Kingdom and Gas Lamp Killer at Ace Hotel Palm Springs during this year’s Desert Gold — where she ended up on a poolside circle bed serenading a man in shades with “Bank Head.” This weekend, she’s wooing the crowd at MoMA PS1’s 2013 Warm Up in Queens, NY. Must be her magic hands. If you’d like to try your magic hands at a pair of tickets to this weekend’s Warm Up, you can enter our contest. And by all means, go down an internet rabbit hole about Kelela — she’s a bright comet.

Our Swim Club San Jacintos Tank pays homage to our sunward-jutting neighbors just to the East of Ace Hotel & Swim Club — the fair San Jacintos — and to our brightest shining star. Seattle-based Jungmaven makes these from a natural white material composed of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton. Hemp is an environmentally friendly, sustainable crop that produces more fiber per acre than trees, has naturally anti-microbial properties and goes from seed to harvest in only four months. It’s hard to smoke though — we tried. Recommended use: wearing.
