My buddy DJ eur-o-steve is a Los Angeles DJ. I'm always following Steve's newest playlists on Soundcloud. His taste in music ranges from vocal dance remixes, flashbacks, vocal house, electronic and trance genres with a special European club flavor (Steve is originally from the UK).
Being around Steve I've been fortunate to hear some great music I've downloaded or heard him play live at clubs around Southern California. So I wonder what Steve would think about this song from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (pictured below), called Thrift Shop.
Music Producer Macklemore and his partner Rapper Ryan Lewis music video Thrift Shop has been viewed on YouTube more than 62 million times. And all this without the help of a major music label support.
Owning a Los Angeles home organizing service, we visit thrift stores all over Southern California and we drop off items from generous clients so they can get a tax write-off or just help clear the clutter in their house or office. We've written blog topics that included how one Pomona thrift store employee employee found $30,000 tucked inside a donated suit jacket, celebrity thrift stores in Los Angeles, even a piece on a woman who was featured on David Letterman when bought a Jackson Pollock painting for $5 and almost threw darts at it in her mobile home in Costa Mesa.
One thing for sure, Thift Stores have not always seem very cool-- but they are gaining popularity with the reuse and recyle movement. But what if Tag Shops were somehow to become these hip locales where everyone wants to hang out, sort of like, The New American Rodeo Drive? Check out Macklemore & Ryan Lewis new song (caution: adult language). They're making thrifting fun, sexy, full of great cool designer bargains (99-cents!) where everyone can afford to join the club. Can it be any better?

If you think the music is not main stream enough, check out the duo on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this month (scroll down to the January 18th entry).
