About Joyce Lee & The Killing Shoes
Being raised strictly on classical music, Joyce Lee never realized what she was missing from her life until the day her best friend played a punk rock album for her. As soon as that music hit her ears, a light bulb went off in her soul and she knew what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. After moving to LA, Joyce met up with drummer, Wrecks and guitarist Brian Christopher who came from the same punk rock background and through their common bond, the three formed a shared vision in “Joyce Lee and the Killing Shoes” - a gritty, sexy and quirky modern rock n’ roll band infused with the vintage 70’s influences they love. Combining Wreck’s sharp, hard-hitting chops, Brian Christopher’s melodic guitar grooves and Joyce’s powerhouse vocals, this band has a sound that makes no apologies for what it is and will knock you off your feet.

Located in Culver City, Royal/T is a playful blending of café, concept shop, and art exhibition space. The 10,000-square-foot space reflects the interior realm of fantasy that strongly influences the artist’s included in Owner Susan Hancock’s art collection. Royal/T’s café is inspired by the meido kissa (maid café) phenomena of Akihabara, Tokyo’s electronic district. Re-contextualizing the underground culture of Japan that celebrates “cosplay” (costume play), waitresses dress in maid uniforms with a Lolita-esque touch, while serving an amalgam of French and Japanese cuisine with local California style. The art space showcases curated exhibitions with a focus on Japanese contemporary art; and an inventive concept store emulates the collection’s sophistication, a seamless merging of Japanese pop culture and high-end design.
