Baroque & Mod

Baroque refers to a period in art, architecture, and music in the 17th and 18th centuries, where exaggerated drama, rich colors, and intense light and dark shadows comprised the preferred aesthetic. Mod refers to the subculture in London, England, during the late 1950s and early-to-mid 60s that spanned fashion and music. Music like soul, ska, beat music, and R&B, vehicles like motor scooters, and clothing like tailor-made suits were popular at this time. When the movement ended in the mid-to-late 60s, the term "mod" came to mean anything modern, popular, or in style. If baroque and mod had a car crash, we're guessing the ambulance would be absolutely cray.
