Guess where those pink metallic legging came from? American Apparel's warehouse downtown, playa!

Go HERE for more photos by Frankie Pimentel and tag yourself and your friends!

When Glass Candy, Chromatics, and Mike Simonetti came to town for their 'Italians Do It Better' tour, we felt that statement to be quite misleading. They '"do it better"... really?? So here are a few things Angelenos do better, if not best... Can Italians rock a Selena-esque bra top and own the look like this chick?

It's widely accepted that no one masters the inner wrist tat like we do here in L.A.

Okay, so these leather shoes are likely Italian, but we do the the ironic footwear look like nobody's business.

We practically invented fog cannons.

Where else can you find hipster 'staches and fauxhawk-mullet hybrids like these? And in one sitting?

Groupies. Please, this whole town is a population of groupies. When someone grows up and decides to be a groupie (they fancy themselves 'band-aids' but I refuse to grant that ego stroke) they move here.
