Iggy Pop & friends @ ATP NY Friday
"Big brands seem determined to top last year's appearance by Courtney Love at Alexander Wang's gas station-housed Fashion Week after party, and Tommy Hilfiger has lured some big guns: The Strokes. We hear they'll appear at Hilfiger's bash following his 25th anniversary show at Lincoln Center, on Sunday, Sept. 12. Invitations haven't yet been dispatched, but the event already has a surefire guest: 17-year-old model Atlanta de Cadenet, the stepdaughter of Strokes guitarist Nick Valensi, who makes her first Vogue appearance in the September 2010 issue.
Meanwhile, rumors have surfaced that Iggy Pop, who took the stage for [a sunglasses company] in May, will perform at John Varvatos's annual party in his Bowery boutique (the former site of legendary Manhattan punk club CBGB)."-[Fashionologie (actually post from NY Magazine?)]
We can't confirm an appearance by either The Strokes or the leathery one (and I think the entire article quoted above was a quoted NY Magazine article that was since removed), but the current rumor that Iggy Pop will perform at the Varvatos store doesn't seem that far-fetched since he has been in the area, Guns N' Roses performed in the store earlier this year. New York Fashion Week is underway (Blonde Redhead played a show at Tribeca Grand last night).
Iggy & The Stooges played ATP NY on Friday (9/3) along with the Scientists, Mudhoney, and Sleep. We posted a few pictures and commentary about that already. A second set of pictures from that show (our first of the Scientists who played Blood Red River in its entirety) continues below...
