LOS ANGELES, Jun 15, 2010 / FW/ — Carson, California might be home to the Los Angeles Galaxy, but unlike in Star Wars, soccer is not in a galaxy far far away…

In fact, the ongoing FIFA World Cup is just a hop and a skip away as adidas Originals sponsored an intimate gathering of 150 L.A.-based tastemakers at the local HVW8 Gallery to listen to the smooth notes of artist Mayer Hawthorne.

World Cup and Laker fans were able to catch the games on big screen TV’s installed for the event.
