With the American Film Market (AFM) in town, the 3rd Street Promenade was full of people shopping, eating and enjoying the Southern California weather. It was also a beautful day to enjoy some great music especially at The Betsey Johnson boutique store in Santa Monica Place where the designer herself made a special appearace - her first visit to Los Angeles in five years. And to kick it all off, local favorites The Mulhollands performed outside for the day's events that included treats from Lil Rae Cakes, a DJ set by DJ Sis and gift bags to the first 150 fans.

The Mulhollands, who released their debut album OH MY! earlier this year are one of the hardest working bands in Los Angeles, playing gigs nightly all over town and even getting the stamp of approval from The Mayor of Sunset Strip himelf, Rodney Bingenheimer. Influenced by the pop/punk sounds of Bondie and the attitude of Joan Jett, The Mulhollands debut album conjures up a dreamy, romanticized Los Angeles that gives you that soaring feeling as if you're high above the hills of Mulholland Drive. If you're not familiar with the group, check out the making of Oh My! below from bass player Jeff Mizushima.
