Dear Friends,

We’ve got some cool new arrivals at the shop!! Check out the amazing new Friends With YouWISH COME TRUE” toys!! Each one is an adorable plastic weeble-wobble type toy with bells inside, created in true FWY style. These are flying off shelves around the world but we’ve got ’em at Sweat. Also, check out most of Bob Dylan’s back catalogue lovingly reissued on high-quality vinyl!!

We’re happy to announce that Sweat Records has recently doubled it’s book section!! We’ve been complimented on our unique selection of hard-to-find/interesting/obscure music, art, fiction and pop culture titles so now we’re bringing you even more literary and visual goodness.

Speaking of books, the SWEAT BOOKS Book Club meets Wednesday, June 25th at 8pm and we’ll be discussing “Snuff” – the new book by Chuck Palahniuk. It’s out now and a pretty swift read so grab a copy and turn those pages!! The SBBC has a Facebook group and you can join it by clicking here.

There will be sno-cones, guest DJs Hottpants and Carmine P. Filthy (Even Further, NYC) along with our awesome residents, veejay Chris V doing “Music Video Request” on the back patio, and of course… CUPCAKES.
