The latest edition of Neon and Nonsense™ is packed with everything the RSVP Gallery team has been up to over the past month. We traveled to the opening night of Kanye West’s Saint Pablo Tour, North Coast Music Festival for some of our favorite performers, and New York Fashion Week to see the latest newest seasons. Per usual, Kanye failed to disappoint, as he unveiled his floating, Transformer-like stage with a constant mosh pit underneath. We caught some of our favorite acts at North Coast, including a surprise appearance from Chicago’s own Vic Mensa. At New York Fashion Week we were front row for Alexander Wang, where he unveiled his new collaboration with Adidas, as well as Yeezy Season 4, and Travi$ Scott’s pop-up at Bape New York.
Check out the full episode above for tons of rare footage and be on the lookout for our next episode. In case you missed it, the Neon and Nonsense™ took a trip to Lollapalooza and more in our last episode.
If you got a chance to look at our last episode of Neon and Nonsense, you got a few quick looks into our recent visit to Paris. The RSVP Gallery team stayed busy with stops at a bevy of pop-ups, showrooms, and runway shows. Creative Director Zach Coffman traveled with the crew and captured some dope photos from the trip.
The crew, which consisted of Easy Otabor, Lance Jackson, and Coffman, was in attendance at the famed VLONE pop-up at collette Paris with Virgil Abloh and friends and got a chance to get a first look at Kanye’s Paris Pablo shop, skipping the line the wrapped around the block. Showroom stops included: Haider Ackerman, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Enfants Riches Déprimés, Off-White, and Clot. The team also got front row access to a slew of shows like Off-White and Clot’s unique street presentation.
Stay tuned for more rare footage and be on the lookout for new arrivals in store and online at RSVP Gallery.

Kanye West held six screenings for his song ‘Famous’ last night in New York City. By now everyone knows “I FEEL LIKE ME AND TAYLOR MIGHT…,” the first 10 words of the song, which have ignited the masses. West’s ever-changing album The Life of Pablo has been at the pinnacle of hip-hop conversation this year. Not just because of the content within the album, but the conversation and controversy subsequent to its release. The Taylor Swift quip being the height of the hype. I don’t need to recap their complicated relationship, but if you have seen the video, you know that fuel has been added to the flame, depending on perspective.
The video, which is currently only available via Tidal, has been screened in Los Angeles and now, New York. LA got the Hollywood treatment and tickets sold out almost instantly. West took the streets of NYC, much like his famed ‘New Slaves‘ screenings, and notified fans with tweets revealing six screening locations at 10 p.m. RSVP Gallery headed to the E Houston screening location as fans and curious passerby eagerly awaited the screening. Nearly two hours passed, but at midnight, the projectors illuminated the sides of buildings as onlookers cheered.
Since its release, everyone has come out of the woodwork to weigh in; Lena Dunham took to social media to air out her woes with the video, while Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel (insert Kanye’s Spongebob meme here) blocked out segments of their show to poke fun at West. The Reddit community has already dedicated a slew of threads to the video and its interpretations. The flick features George W. Bush, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Kim Kardashian, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, Taylor Swift and West in bed together and is mimicked after Vincent Desiderio’s 2008 “Sleep” painting. West, who entrusted Uzi to put his signature style on the video, has yet to weigh in on the truths of any interpretations, and may very well leave it to the masses. Check out the gallery above for a full recap and stay tuned for news on more screenings.
