In an age when modernity is a loaded philosophical concept, a journey back to a time when modernity meant a toaster sounds like a relaxing escape. Take a trip to Pinkghost (1888 Polk St., Hollywood) at 7 p.m. on Saturday for the kitschy 50s-inspired event At the Sock Hop. The event will transform the boutique home of Dunny dolls and other hipster accessories into a 50s-style living room that will showcase the latest artwork of illustrator Danny Brito. Britos new work features mostly young girls as subjects, donning 50s fashion and drawn with a contemporary, indie hand. There will even be music and cupcakes for you to enjoy as you gaze into the girls dreamy, pencil drawn eyes. Admission is free. Call 954-374-8761, or visit pinkghost.net.
