backyard bazaar

updatePoster

 

from 12:00 pm – 6:00pm this saturday and sunday at the gas station. 2601 12th Avenue South.

 

our friends from bang candy and barista parlor (with iced turkish coffee) will be there all weekend and the grilled cheeserie will be with us on Sunday.

 

in-store only; NO email or phone sales. first come, first serve.

 

a few insider tips we’ve learned over the years for these sorts of events :

 

#1 the “cash only” line is generally faster – bring cash if you’re in a hurry.

 

#2 avoid huge lines for the dressing rooms – gals, you can avoid ‘em by wearing tights, bike shorts, a dress or anything you can throw jeans on top of. and for the boys? shorts… long johns… you’ll think of something!

 

#3 the jeans only stay so organized for so long – so boys, if you look down and the jean you are trying on has a zipper, you’re wearing lady pants.

 

#4 this is marathon weekend and Saturday traffic tends to get a bit rough in certain parts of town. might we suggest avoiding the race course , corresponding road closures AND driving through downtown or the general lp field area.

record store day

a11bd356Every day we are proud to call Nashville home. On a day like Record Store Day, we are even prouder. There’s so much going on at the hometown record stores that it is hard to know where to begin. Fond Object, Grimey’s, and The Groove have killer shows and dj sets going down all day on Saturday and Third Man Records is pulling off what they are calling “The World’s Fastest Released Record”. Jack White will be playing live in the morning and within a matter of hours and with the help of United Records Pressing, the record will be printed and returned to sell in the shop that afternoon. See links below to all the happenings.

“They say you only turn 30 once in your life. The same can be said about turning 5. Being a Pisces and it being birthday time, my favorite way to celebrate is to get out on the open road and take in nature, mom and pop shops, and pick antiques out of back yards.

 

 

Myself, Caroline, birthday child Lola, and brother Hank packed up and headed on a week long adventure along the 101 bordering the Pacific Ocean…”

music has been at the front of our minds lately as we’ve been diligently working on bringing supper + song back into existence. we thought it fitting to start out the week with this playlist of the bands represented from this past weekend’s Chapel NYC vintage rock and harley tees. there are only a few remaining. check them out here.
