Sweat Records: News galore!!

Hey Friends,

Whew: It took us a few days to recover from Winter Music Conference but boy was it worth it. Great shows and parties all over the place and the chance to see top-notch musical acts from all over the world!! Can’t wait ’til next year…

BIG THANKS: To everyone who came out to EL-P and The Presets last week!! Both shows were seriously awesome, the crowds were great, and we loved every minute of it. Thanks also to Churchill’s, FLM Presents, Studio A and everyone who helped make it happen. The next Sweat event is Friday, May 11th at Churchill’s!! Full details soon…

Update: We are SOLD OUT of tickets for tomorrow’s Of Montreal show at Studio A. Doors are at 7pm and they’ll be releasing some more tickets then. It’s an early show and will be over by 11 so don’t say we didn’t give you the heads up!!

Store news: Lots of great new releases and restocks in, yum!! Also, sometime in the near future we’re closing for a few days for inventory. We’ve got some great new hardware and software that’s going to make everything run smoother, stock faster and serve you better. We’ll let you know what’s up, and thanks in advance for your patience.

Also to check out this weekend: Tate’s Comic’s Annual Anniversary Sale on Saturday and Sunday, The 5th Annual Women + Culture Festival and GenArt’s Fresh Faces in Fashion show on Saturday, and a benefit for the awesome Cornerstone space on Sunday.
