Do It. The Warholian at Royal/T.

Part of the lasting allure of Andy Warhol were those infamous Factory parties -- who wouldn't want to be part of that scene, hang out with Twiggy and cool artists?

Our generation might finally get a chance, sort of. Royal/T Cafe, better known for being L.A.'s first Japanese-style cosplay cafe, is going mod. Starting tonight, the art space will feature Warholian, a full-on Warhol-obsessed extravaganza of an exhibit including works inspired by him and created by amazing contemporary artists like Takashi Murakami, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst and Richard Prince, as well as actual Warhol originals like "Dollar Sign" and "Marilyn." Whoa.

And to kick it all off? A Factory-inspired opening party, of course. There'll be DJ sets by Shepard Fairey and David J (of Bauhaus), and "dark sunglasses, photobooth, pop art, paparazzi, debauchery..." and so the list on the invite goes on. (And Barbie?) Get ready for your 15 minutes.

The Warholian opening party is tonight at 8pm, located at Royal/T at 8910 Washington Blvd. in Culver City. RSVP to with the subject "glitter." The Warholian exhibit will be at Royal/T until Jan. 31, 2011.

  1. The Royal T Cafe, attached to the gallery space, has some of the best cupcakes in LA. If you stop in for the exhibit, be sure to pick one up!
