'A Cross the Universe' Premiere @ Nike Sportswear at the Montalbàn
It should come as no surprise that we here at LAist are huge fans of French DJ duo Justice. When they weren't rocking the jam-packed Shrine for this year's inaugural Hard Haunted Mansion, Gaspard and Xavier happened to be hanging out in Hollywood this past week promoting their latest documentary "A Cross the Universe" with help from their pals at Flux.net. Fellow Ed Banger Records artist Busy P was also on hand, celebrating a limited edition pair of Nikes branded with his namesake. The event was held at Nike Sportswear at the Montalbàn on Vine, and if you haven't had a chance to check the space out, set apart some time and see where music, style, and culture clash. No wonder the LA Times is noting that our fair city is garnering a reputation as the epicenter of progressive dance music.
