With All Love and Respect

Changing of the Guards
The Brooklyn Circus
Deity Lounge 
The 1950's marked the beginning of a good century for America. World War two had just ended, the economy was thriving and American fashion adopted the fighter pilot's jacket, bermuda shorts, hawaiian shirts, capris and nylon. Last night when I walked into Deity for the Brooklyn Circus celebration for the Changing of the Guards book; I walked into the 1950's.
Not exactly with all of the styles but more so because everyone was so well dressed. It is not everyday that you walk into an establishment and every man has a neck accouterment and or a pocket scarf. The atmosphere created by the attendee's was monumental and to describe it as anything less would be a crime.
The music was the fuel to the fire that kept this whole event together. Two levels of solid mixing and splicing of great songs that we have almost forgotten about. When the DJ's took a break from spinning, there was a live performance by The Fuzz Band.
The best part about the whole thing was that the majority of the guest stayed until it was over and it was all about enjoying yourself. 
Spread love, it's the Brooklyn way.
