Har Mar Superstar @ Bardot 05/22/10
Oh, Har Mar, our little Superstar. After a long day of photographing bands at the Silver Lake Jubilee and Synchronicity, there are very few people that could get us to brave the traffic and parking nightmare in Hollywood at midnight. But as soon as we said the secret word at the door (thanks Facebook!), we were whisked into Bardot's tiny stage area for the strip-tease soul train that was Sean Tillman and Jacob Cooper.
The combination of fine ass-shaking, hot impromptu make-out sessions, on stage Jägermeister shots, and the PSA moment when Harmar extolled the merits of proper footwear at all times (including just hangin' in your skivvies) resulted in a packed house of enthusiastic revelers (celebs and friends and celeb friends alike). The fun was so infectious that (with the help of the nice people that extended their bottle service to a core of rowdy kids), the dance party continued on until the patient and weary staff kindly reminded of last call.

His latest solo exhibition is titled “Flutterluster,” showing at Los Angeles gallery Matter Studio. It features large works that incorporate what Huss describes as a “fluttering line” that he’s been playing with ever since he was a child — going on 50 years.
