(No Vacancy Inn)
Just as record shops, clubs, and vintage stores were hubs for cool kids in the pre-Internet era, No Vacancy Inn has positioned itself as a nerve center for the upstarts of the digital age. “The Internet promotes apathy,” says Acyde, “because people think they know all about those clothes or that music, because they’ve seen it online. So they don’t have to go out there and experience it for themselves.” By curating both online and analog experiences, whether via Instagram, radio, parties, or pop-ups, No Vacancy Inn hopes to teach the next generation about the history and context of the music and style they regard as their own.
Acyde, a cerebral former marketing manager for Nike, has worked on projects with the A$AP Mob and now consults for Converse. (“He’s triple OG,” says longtime friend A$AP Bari.)
[Virgil] Abloh calls No Vacancy Inn, founded in 2015, “the most authentic perspective I’ve seen in modern times: real intellect, real points of reference, real ideas.”–
