Looks like I'm finally finishing my Pitchfork Fest posts just as the next big weekend for me rolls around: the 15th anniversary of the publicity firm I work with Bear In Heaven, Olivia Tremor Control, Akron/Family, and more. Out of the frying pan and into the fire, except that both the frying pan and fire are too busy but stressful things that involved hugging lots of your favorite people.
So many great things at the poster fair, but I was good and only left with a few buttons to mail friends.
Thee Oh Sees
Look who it is! Patrick from the late great Jookabox!
Nick Butcher and I sending a big hello back home to the Hometapes family.
Do you have the proper press credentials to be in the VIP area with that bubble camera, ma'am?
Chavez, and a specially delivery for my co-worker, Shil.
The Olivia Tremor Control night-time club show was close to Chinatown, so we got to take a dinner break and eat a real sit-down meal in air conditioning.
My sweet pals Page and Dan made it into town for the Olivia Tremor Control club show Sunday night. They perform as Dreamboat, and have a beautiful record out this fall on Cloud Recordings.
Love me some good bathroom graffiti.
