Art Basel was awesome but thank goodness it’s over! Pink Candy Disko was great and GLASS CANDY were especially fantastic! We’ll definitely be having them back down in the future.
Sweat is in full swing, open NOON TO MIDNIGHT EVERY DAY making espresso and selling records. Check our myspace for some pics!!

On that note, this week we’re super pleased to announce the return of a section in the Sweat email that went away for a while – NEW RELEASES!!
