7. Female models . Several women pointed out to me that GDR models weren’t anorexic waifs or larger-than-life sex bombs but rather average women. There was no East German Kate Moss. In fact, many weren’t professionals at all but hobby models. Leafing through a few old copies of magazines like Für Dich ( For You ) and Modische Maschen ( Fashionable Stitches ) most of the clothes look dowdy and, indeed, the models are everyday women — though, naturally, on the pretty side. They certainly wear less make up and show less skin than those in Vogue . There are no sex tips, but rather an emphasis on work, motherhood, and party politics. For all their libertine body culture, it all strikes me as awfully prude.
We are very excited to announce that we will be working with The Basement East and Mike Grimes to curate our music this year. Our musical performaces are made possible by Stacks on Main:Luxury Apartments in East Nashvile. It's all covers all day with The Tigerbeats (early Rock and Roll/R & B/Jump Blues a la Little Richard) fronted by Patrick Sweany, Brandon Bruce and friends throwing down some 70s/80s Hard Rock, a little Bon Jovi, Ratt, that kind of thing, plus Stolen Faces (Grateful Dead Tribute) and Music City Toppers (60s RandB Covers). Lastly around 1pm there will be a very special performance signifying a special beer that will get tapped shorlty after!
