New Stuff at Sweat + ELECTROMA Monday!!

Dear Friends,

Happy Friday!! Tonight at Fridays at The Vagabond we’ve got a special live performance by NOTHING RHYMES WITH ORANGE!! They’ve been making waves across the pond and will be performing a set of their melodic Britpoppy rock at midnight. We’ve also got VEEJAY CHRIS VIDEO playing some awesome music videos in the garden after the band goes on. All that plus Mike Deuce and Ray Milian rocking the dancefloor, $1 Stella and PBR before midnight and all sorts of other surprises make this a night you can’t miss!!

Just in at Sweat – new releases and re-stocks from your favorite artists!! On CD: Daedelus, Silver Jews, Abe Vigoda, Black Ghosts, Boris, Deltron 3030 (reissued!), Slowdive, Walter Meego, Albert Hammond Jr., Lil Wayne, Quiet Village, Ladytron, Jean Grae, Manu Chao, and more!!

On LP: Beck, Hercules and Love Affair, Ratatat, Jay Reatard, Sufjan Stevens, M.I.A., Modeselektor, The Notwist, Chromeo (“Fancy Footwork” finally on vinyl!), Miss Kittin, Supergrass, Snoop Dogg, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more!! Make sure to keep an eye out for all the “DIGITAL VINYL” where each LP comes with a code to download high-quality MP3s of the tracks!!

Not only that but we’re proud to carry some awesome new local music including Otto Von Schirach‘s “Oozing Bass Spasms”, Jose El Rey‘s “A Little Strong” and the debut release from Joe Rehmer’s Tazer Room!! Come in and support local music!!

Last but not least, we’ve got a special MUSIC MOVIE MONDAY next week… Last year, we presented one of only six North American premieres of “ELECTROMA” – the first feature film directed by French music legends DAFT PUNK!! It was a great success and the movie is *finally* coming out on DVD so we’re proud to be presenting it again in the comfort of our store!! Seating is at 8pm and the film starts at 8.30 sharp. We hope to see you there!!

Lolo, Jsin + the Sweat crew

P.S. The Black Kids, who we brought down for an awesome show last November, are finally releasing their full-length album!! “Partie Traumatic” comes out next Tuesday and to celebrate, here’s a indie-record-store-exclusive link to a free MP3 – enjoy!! —>
