This past Sunday night, Liquid Sundays hosted their first ever fashion edition featuring fashion shows with clothing and accessories provided by Pavement and Sugar, boutiques located in Lawrenceville. The event was held at downtown Pittsburgh’s Olive or Twist, one of my favorite martini bars.

Local models showcased clothing, accessories, and shoes from Pavement and Sugar. Pavement sells some of the most fashionable shoes that I have found in Pittsburgh. Typically, I order all of my shoes online but I will now be purchasing my shoes at Pavement when I want something artsy or a bit funky. The boutique also sells really cute urban style purses and super soft T-shirts with graphic design inspired silkscreens. Sugar sells eclectic clothing that’s perfect for the girl who wants to be comfortable yet unique at the same time. I appreciate the fact that Sugar sells clothing that features lesser known local and national designers. These boutiques remind of me small independent shops that I shopped at in Portland. They add to Lawrenceville’s burgeoning design district.

Flash the DJ provided music throughout the evening. Flash DJs at Brillbox and is half of the duo (with Huck Finn) that spins at Buzz Candy. Buzz Candy is a dance party held the first Thursday of every month at Brillobox in Bloomfield. Buzz Candy features indie and electronic music that is SO fun to dance to!

In addition to the fashion show and live DJ set, three local bands performed at the event including The Central Plains, The Lost Sea, and Thee Adora. I have seen all three bands previously at clubs throughout the city and they each put on a great show at Liquid Sundays.

The Central Plains is one of my favorite local bands. They have a folk indie sound and consistently sound great live. I can sum up their set by saying I wished they played longer. It was a smooth set and they members are very talented musicians.

The Lost Sea played next. They delivered an energetic show with a clean sound. The Lost Sea was a crowd favorite and I enjoyed that they seemed to be having a lot of fun. I love when a band has great stage presence. It helps set the tone at any show or event.

The evening was rounded out by Thee Adora. Thee Adora is a fairly new local band featuring members from Soulharmonic and Zao. Thee Adora features a female singer, Stacy, who has one of the strongest vocals I have heard in a long time. Thee Adora plays indie rock with some songs having an 80’s influence. My favorite part of the Thee Adora set was watching bass player Dan Martin and guitarist Marty Lunn caught up – or should I say “lost” – in their music. It was quite entertaining watching them play; you could tell they were feeling it. The band sounded fantastic.

Photography was also on display by local artists D. Holmes and Nicholas Coppola. Unfortunately, the event organizers did not list the names of all the photographers displaying their work on their literature so I am missing a few names in this post.


Podcamp Pittsburgh also covered the event via blogs, podcasts, and photograpy. Liquid Sundays partnered with the tech group to combine traditional media with new media. You can find links to their post by visiting Podcamp Pittsburgh is hosting a free conference next month on October 17-19. Geekstar has attended the past 3 years.
