The Indie RAWards: So Not Your Average Awards Show!
We've just gotten wind of an indie awards show tomorrow night, thrown by RAW: natural born artists, and we're pleased as pie that an organization like this exists! Unlike some other programs we'll catch this awards season, where back-handed industry shenanigans abound (ahem, Oscars), the winner's circle of this art contest is chosen by the popular vote of fellow artists. With over 3,000 submissions from all over the country being judged on their wow factor — and genres like fashion, music, photography, performing art, and hair and makeup represented — tomorrow night's festivities are sure to be easy on the eyes!
The fête will be jam-packed with live tunes, roaming spectacles, flash mob performances, and of course, a fantastic runway fashion parade. The champs in each category will also be on display, and if Kimmy Le's radical hair design (pictured) offers any inkling of what RAW has in store, this party will definitely prove to be an aesthete's wonderland. Get your tickets soon as they're selling like haute cakes!
When: January 12, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Where: Grauman's Chinese Theater Ballroom, 6801 Hollywood Blvd
How: Tickets are $15 per person, online.
