Common Goods: A Luv-A-Fair To Remember

Luv-A-Fair was one of the birthplaces of the New Wave era in the '80s, that movement of music and fashion that had all the cool kids painting their faces, ratting their hair, and tearing their fishnets. It was a legendary night club in Vancouver that spawned and fostered some of the era's biggest musical acts, like Nina Hagen, Sonic Youth, Violent Femmes, The Cure, and many more. The club closed its doors in 2003, but the party lives on on the Luv-A-Fair's photostream on Flickr.

Technically they aren't part of The Commons, but man the snaps of all that '80s gaudy, garish, craziness certainly are good.
