04/11/10 Philadelphia PA: I had the opportunity to experience and shoot open chair #7 event at National Mechanics In Philadelphia Pennsylvania, an open chair event is an A gathering of stylists, models, and mortals. It is an innovative event for a creative industry. Rather than an educational clinic, Open Chair allows hairstylists to network, socialize, and party. While getting together to share tips and inspirations, several stylists will showcase their craft on stage with live video projections illuminating the snips and clips. Join us, and each other, for the first industry event of its type, National Mechanics Is located at 22 South 3rd St, The Mechanics National Bank was a Philadelphia, bank founded by and geared toward mechanics.
Prior to National Mechanics the Mechanics National Bank housed he legendary Club Revival and several other bars including an ill-fated Coyote Ugly and Foggy Goggles The atmosphere at National Mechanics was positive fun and funky and the music was yet again awesome DJ Minster Mike played everything from Portishead, Al Green, Thievery Corporation, Zero 7 and much more, I come to expect nothing less from him, Notwithstanding the skills of DJ Wyatt was nothing less then superb, this is a complete melting pot of creative people networking in a positive environment, The Drinks was pretty good however the bar tenders at National Mechanics may want to speed things up just a little.
