Last year Mochilla and VTech curated the amazing Timeless Series at the Luckman theater, featuring Mulatu Astatke, godfather of Ethiojazz, Suite for Ma Dukes orchestral J-Dilla Tribute, and Brazillian composer Arthur Verocai. The shows were certainly legendary, but so was the graphic design that accompanied it. The simple yet striking design of the promo posters plastered around town were pieces of art in their own right, and on Thursday, Mochilla will present 25 limited edition posters by artist and beat maker,Teebs at Mochilla HQ's (4124 Verdugo RD, Los Angeles CA 90065). The night of art precedes the March 30th release of the DVD box set, which screened for SXSW audiences on Saturday, featuring beautifully captured, one-of-a-kind moments captured on these luminous nights of music. Vietnamese food by Mandoline Grill, art by Teebs and music by some jazz superstars?
