BOOSTERS The authors of ‘Moving Out’ show off the finished book.

Lit Revolution at SCU AFTER ONLY 162 years, Santa Clara University has suddenly and unexpectedly become a student literary powerhouse. This month saw the publication of Moving Out, an advice book, done in tweet form, for young people leaving home for college, written by four SCU seniors: Gabrielle Jasinski, Eliza Lamson, Liz Wassmann and Hannah Miller (the first three have bylined in Metro). It is very likely the first commercial book ever written by Santa Clara University undergraduates; it is published by THiNKaha of Cupertino. “This is such an exciting time for us,” Miller said. “If you’d have told us we’d be authors before we graduated when we left home for college four years ago, I don’t think any of us would’ve believed it.” At a booksigning event on the campus June 6, the four co-eds were joined by Matt Chow (along with Jon Chu), who displayed After College, a guide on what to do the day after graduation. As the oldest literary magazine west of the Mississippi, The Santa Clara Review is celebrating its own milestone this summer. Formerly known as The Owl, it was founded in 1869 and just published its 100th volume (the discrepancy in dates and numbers is due to little things, like World War I and II, that disrupted publication). Once entirely a showcase for SCU student writers (Jefferson Airplane guitarist Jorma Kaukonen was an editor while an undergraduate), the literary journal now attracts established writers and poets across the country. “The review is one of the Bay Area’s oldest institutions,” said editor Stephen Layton (who also writes for Metro), “and we’ve somehow survived through thick and thin for almost 150 years. Right now, we’re stronger than ever. Former poet laureate Robert Hass even came down to celebrate with us at our publication party in May.”—Michael Rosa Michael Rosa is a contributor to PAPINO, a new literary ’zine featuring SCU writers.

In Fine Petal INDUSTRY LOGIC dictates that up-and-coming clothing brands make a name in Los Angeles. Especially the type of nouveau-grunge labels peddled on trendy online shops and a legion of popular indie-chic style blogs. But Petals and Peacocks, the brainchild of 26-year-old Victoria Velasquez and her fiance, Ryan Mante, was launched to national renown from the South Bay, so the idea of opening a local flagship store grew on Velasquez. Once it’s up and running, it will be one of the only independent women’s clothing brands headquartered in the region. To hell with industry logic. “Going on two years of being in business, we believed it was time to make a big move,” Velasquez says. “Our flagship store is a quaint spot but embodies everything Petals and Peacocks. Once you step in, you’ll get a feel of the brand and the lifestyle.”

Petals and Peacocks Opening Saturday, June 22; 2–7pm

That spot is 2261 The Alameda, technically in Santa 2261 The Alameda, Clara but on the edge of San Jose. It is a storefront Santa Clara flanked by tall display windows, topped by white lattice work and framed by tan brick. Get there between 2 and 7pm this Saturday to celebrate the store’s grand opening and the launch of the brand’s summer collection, sardonically dubbed “Oh, My Goth.” The first 50 people to show up get a free gift bag, so plan accordingly. Velasquez expects the store’s proximity to Santa Clara University to be a boon for business, a draw for the 18- to 25-year-olds who typically favor the line’s sarcastic, boundary-pushing, irreverent style, one replete with cheeky wordplay à la “Shut des F*ck Up” beanies, “Bender” snapbacks and Gucci-inspired “Hucci Mama” cut-off-style tanks. The message twists pop culture, bastardizes highfashion logo pretense and insists on taking nothing too seriously. Attention to detail sets the line apart from other casual T-shirt-centric brands: the tees and tanks are custom cut and sewn, dyed and destroyed. It’s not just a design emblazoned on a stock tee, Velasquez notes—it’s a carefully crafted product, from the subtly frayed seams to the soft, worn-limp fabric. Of course, embracing the company’s San Jose roots by setting up shop in the vicinity doesn’t make it a patently local brand. Velasquez maintains her geographically expansive ambitions. National sites sell her stuff, and the brand enjoys a widespread cult following. But a storefront gives a better semblance of identity, marketability and legitimacy, notes Velasquez. It’s a place to soak up the vibe and to see and feel the brand’s manifest image through the styling and setting envisioned by its creator—a cohesion missing from the piecemeal photos of online retailers. “We hope to bring more brand awareness and create a bigger local following by opening up this flagship,” Velasquez says.—Jennifer Wadsworth

STILL FLYING Breakdancing stars the Style Elements Crew celebrate 19 years of crazy moves.

Style Elements THE Style Elements Crew, who celebrate their 19th anniversary this weekend at Roosevelt Community Center in San Jose, are recognized in the hip-hop and dance community as one of the leading West Coast breakdancing crews. They started in 1994 right here in the Bay Area, a culturally diverse crew, with all original core members from Stockton, Modesto and San Jose. They relocated to L.A. in the early 2000s but wanted to bring their 19th-anniversary party back to San Jose to acknowledge their roots. Breaking was stagnant in the United States when the crew was created, but Style Elements was able to bring new life to the scene with new moves and individuality, with each crew member having a very distinctive, very personal style. “If you’ve seen how modern breakdancing has evolved, you know how everyone’s on their hands doing crazy moves—they’re flying and they’re doing handstands,” says Andrew “A-Game” Mam, who joined Style Elements in 2011. “People are dancing upside down using their freezes and momentum. So much of the dance’s evolution came from Style Elements.” In addition, Style Elements were one of the first crews to incorporate group routines in breaking competitions. Nowadays, any B-boys and B-girls using group routines in battles, whether they know it or not, were probably influenced by Style Elements. In 1997, Style Elements were the first American crew to win the international B-boy competition, Battle of the Year, which is regarded as one of the biggest, most prestigious events of its kind in the world.The crew’s anniversary party includes a free-form dance party at MACLA on Friday (9pm; $5) with cypher circles encouraged. Saturday (4pm; $15) will see a much bigger celebration party at Roosevelt Community Center with various competitions, several different dance crews in attendance and moves from Style Elements. “The main focus of it is purely dancing; it’s like a party,” says Mam. “We call our events jams because in the beginning ‘jam’ used to mean party. Nowadays, as things have evolved, it’s become very sportslike. It just drags on. Everyone sits down and watches people dance. Really, the event is for people to have a good time and share energy with some of the nation’s best B-boys and B-girls that come through and represent.”—Aaron Carnes BOULEVARD BOULE VA ARDT TAVERN AV VERN

A Good Night at Good Karma GOOD KARMA’S patio is a metal and wood barricade that juts out into the First Street sidewalk. It’s shaped not unlike a bar, tall enough to rest your elbows on comfortably while standing up. There is an actual bar inside. It only fits four bar stools, which is curious for a place that serves beer. In all fairness, Good Karma is a vegan cafe, and most of the interior is dedicated to the mastication of various meatless dishes. However, this small eatery has also earned the reputation for stocking a great variety of quality beers. The food is quite excellent, but I’ve observed more meat eaters enjoying liquid bread than dedicated herbivores. The barley literati flock to Good Karma. I found a vacant spot at the small, intimate bar, and while contemplating my options, I overheard the purveyor of the place, a gentleman named Ryan, educating a customer about a curious varietal he had in stock. Something happened to the Bruery’s Autumn Maple. It had gone sour and was now being poured as Autumn Maple Sour. They could have been a bit more inventive with the name, but I suppose nature had been imaginative enough with the flavor. I asked Ryan about the beer. He simply answered, “Beer, sometimes, goes pleasantly sour.” Usually I wouldn’t dare tread near something described as “lacto infected,” but I trust Ryan, so with my curiosity piqued, I decided to order a glass. As soon as I was handed the brew, I gave it a taste. It was a powerful sour. I’ve met lemons that would be in a lot of trouble if they ran into Autumn Maple Sour in a dark alley. I’m not saying it’s not pleasant—it’s extremely pleasant—but be prepared to be introduced to something you’ve probably never tasted before. Outside, on the patio, my friend and (sometimes) drinking companion Mr. Harada was enjoying a double India Pale Ale. We had actually scheduled this meeting to plot a new project. Artisan beer and planning go extremely well together, although the plans usually need revisiting during a more sober moment. Sometimes the right mix of atmosphere and alcohol can precipitate enlightening moments, which you will remember (mostly) for the rest of your temporal existence. So, while I enjoyed a long list of sours, and Mr. Harada sipped various IPAs, we talked a little about our project, but it was really more of an excuse for good company, a night of listening to music, storytelling and people watching, for which the patio at Good Karma is the perfect place. The crowd on South First Street is as colorful as Good Karma’s cold case.
