V/A- Summer Soul, Vols. 1-7
It was pointed out that we haven't been doing many Mp3's in the last several months. So here's a catch-up. Both new and recently restocked.
*In just a couple weeks, the Brooklyn Zine Fest is going down! Sunday, April 21st, to be exact. With our friends from I Love Bad Movies organizing, it's sure to be loads of fun.
*We changed our Music section
a bunch. It is now a much less confusing experience and has less of the old and more of the new.
*Somehow we missed that Seattle musician Allen Karpinski
put out an album a while back as part of a pretty interesting series that also features Thurston Moore and Chris Brokaw.
*Both songwriter Jason Molina
and documentary filmmaker Les Blank
passed away in the last couple weeks. Les made it to Olympia for the 2011 Olympia Film Festival and it was awesome. Our buddy Ned from the long-running No Love for Ned
radio show put together a fantastic tribute show for Jason. Both will be missed.
*Legendary Olympia/Bellingham queercore
group, Behead the Prophet No Lord Shall Live (which is led by famed vegan chef and zinester
, Joshua Ploeg
and our buddy Jon QuittyQuittner
, author of Hessian Obsession, one of my all-time favorite zines), and Olympia's The Need recently reunited for a short PNW
tour. It was amazing. And The Stranger did a great interview
with Behead the Prophet during it.
*Olympia's People in a Position to Know Records is doing a silent auction
of some of their long out of print releases, as well as doing lathe cut demonstrations at Coachella
and Jacksonville's One Spark Festival.
Until next month,
Joshua James & Chask'e
