Our anniversary party last week was awesome!! We gave away a ton of swag, sold stacks of amazing CDs and LPs, and enjoyed some fantastic musical performances. So many people asked if we were going to be throwing in-store parties more often that we just might… stay tuned. Now as for our out-of-store parties…
Tonight at The Vagabond, Sweat is super happy to present the official CD release party for the highly-anticipated third album from JAMIE LIDELL!! “JIM” comes out next Tuesday but if you come early (10 to midnight) you can hear the new album, score goodies courtesy of Warp Records and enjoy $1 Stella’s and PBR… Then in the Garden, we present a special live performance by Animals of the Arctic side-project THIS HEART ELECTRIC!! Fans of Depeche Mode, Talking Heads, Peter Murphy the like will definitely dig this.
Next Friday, THE POSTMARKS will be performing live, for free, to celebrate the UK release of their debut album!! These locals are going places so come see them Friday, May 2nd at The Vagabond.
Speaking of… if you’re out early tonight, come by the store for the opening date of the HOBO FILM FESTIVAL!! This unique touring collection of early American train-hopping films will begin screening at Sweat at 8pm. For more information visit myspace.com/hobofilmfest
