Kim Anne Foxman’s Jewlerly/Hercules & Love Affair at the Echo

Some of you may already be familiar with Kim Ann Foxman’s jewelry line, which has graced the pages of Nylon, XLR8R and Paper Magazine. She has been producing her Brooklyn-based jewelry line for a few years now, and her current line features a bevy of shields with animal iconography etched on them.

They are available in both sterling silver and gold and can be purchased directly from Kim by emailing her at They can also be purchased at Opening Ceremony NYC, Base in Miami and Silverman Gallery in San Francisco.

You may also be familiar with Kim Ann from the group Hercules and Love Affair, who are currently touring the US behind there debut album out on DFA. This is the hottest act to come out of the dance scene in quite some time. Straight out of Brooklyn, this band is the brain child of DJ Andy Butler. Anthony Hegarty (from Antony and the Johnsons) lends his voice to a few cuts on the album and the group also features Kim Anne, and Nomi , who both share vocal duties.

was lucky enough to witness their Los Angeles debut at the Echo last night. The line outside stretched down the block with people trying to get into the show. It was very obvious that this group could have sold out a much larger venue, but instead opted to play the tiny Echo.

Tickets outside were people sold for upwards of 200 and that would have been money well spent. The group exploded onto the stage to mass hysteria as the crowd never let up their screaming and dancing. Nomi and Kim Ann both worked the stage and the crowd like veterans. During the show it was quite obvious you were witnessing something special.

Here are some pics from the show:

If you’re still not convinced, here’s a video I shot at the show:
