New Dior Hightops and Kanye Vuitton Lows and Metronomy, Holy Ghost and Hot Chip Live

Hey kids, i got back to Aus last tueday and today is pretty much my first day off work. i didnt even tell my boss i was coming home early and he has already raped me for all im good for. But welcome back to tradehooks, where we post a bit.

I have been saying for a long time that pure black hightops are the bomb, but no one has made one that has been this pant-moistening. part of the new Dior Homme range these are slick black and unique. get some for me someone, for a sweet $945 USD. Also the Louis Vuitton Don, got together with Louis Vuitton for some 2k9 sneakers.

They be pretty hot too. i think he got the idea for the collar around the back from the movie dune. checkout for more details on all the sneakers.

In other news, the whole tradehooks family and extended family got invited up to Hyde Park Barracks to see Metronomy play last Thursday night as part of the Sydney Festival. Pivot, the band who played before, sounded like a half hour tight intro to their own set, which never came. a half hour electronic wall of boredom meltdown. Then these guys stepped out
When metronomy came out, it was a relief to most of us, who needed a break from the continuous round stream to and from the becks bar, serving only becks, a decent bier. Metronomy rock 3 keyboards from what i remember, and have touch night lights on their shirts, which through careful choreography turn on at certain points and entertain the masses. their set was tight, nothing new not on 'nights out', but i could be and absentees destroyed the majority of a bottle of bombay in the arvo, and the becks bar had a new fave group of customers (the tradehooks family). but all up, metronomy were fuckin sick, they are a band you really got to listen to if you havent, and go see them live and give them some AUD love.

Part of the tradehooks family went to see hot chip, supported brilliantly by holy ghost!
holy ghost played a set i could have listened to all night, a set alot of djs could learn from. but they were so good. the majority of the crowd turned up not long before hot chip started, so no great movements on the d-floor, except these two crazy kids in diamonte jackets.

hot chip played a great set, stuff from all the albums and i took a great pic. they were tight as, and had the crowd well revved. i would have liked to have seen what they were like at bdo.
I found this sweet holy ghost! Michael Jackson edit over at blouse
