We can’t believe we are writing the last Best Of The Week in June, where has this month gone? the fastest month of the year by far. Here is a short round up of greatness to hit the web and the world this week. First up is the seriously heavy Gang Photography of Carlos Alvarez Monero. Our Copenhagen brothers at Soulland preview there SS14 collection ‘Katastrophe’. And good news for you vinyl junkies – London’s first all vinyl lending library is set to open next month. See you in July!

We thought we would stay open late tonight to allow you 9-7pm workers the chance to come and shop the sale before the weekend. The Goodhood Store at 41 Coronet Street and Life Store at 20 Coronet Street London will open till 8pm tonight with complimentary drinks for all.
Last Saturday saw the Goodhood Bench party at our London Store. A big thank you to everybody that headed down, Lucas and Thomas for the live portraits, Peroni for the drinks, Tivoli for the prizes and Missy and the team at Casa Negra for hosting the evening affair. We hope everybody that made it down had as much fun as we did.
With Instagram launching their new, world changing video platform the way we share content has changed forever. With that in mind we though it was time to do a post on The Goodhood Store Instagram community… we love you guys, keep posting your #Goodhood photos and next month we will choose the best photo and send you something nice.
Despite a brief spell of hot weather in the UK we rarely see blue skies and sun bleached streets like those found in Dolly Faibyshev’s photographs of Palm Springs, we came across these on our weekly It’s Nice That stroll and they are amazing. In other news the new Daft Punk album split opinions here at The Goodhood Store but we all agree Nicolas Jaar is a bad man and the super talented producer has gone and remixed the whole of Random Access Memories and it’s bloody brilliant. Finally the eagle eyed people amongst you will spot that this is actually old news but we only came across it yesterday and it is worth a mention – “The 30 Harshest Musician-on-Musician Insults in History” is a hilarious read… i’ll leave you with Kurt Cobain on Guns N’ Roses – “They’re really talentless people, and they write crap music, and they’re the most popular rock band on the earth right now. I can’t believe it.”
This Saturday we are throwing a bench party at The Goodhood Store. The store will be open from 11am till 8pm with free drinks and in-store music. Plus get your portrait drawn by the excellent Lucas Dillon and Tomas Slater. Win a Tivoli Audio PAL and SS13 stock by shopping on the day. The fun doesn’t end there… we are also throwing a hush hush party after (9pm – 2am) at a new Shoreditch location with Acyde, Seb Chew (YOYO) and Goodhood DJs. The evening event is guest list only and very limited so if you would like to attend please RSVP to email@example.com with RSVP in the subject. Or alternatively head to the store on Saturday as every purchase will give you entry to the party… aint no party like a Goodhood party. All RSVPs will be added to the guestlist however the evening will operate on a first come first serve basis. If you are RSVPing for people other than yourself please include their email address.
MOCAtv present this excellent 22min doc on the art of Black Flag.
