Vicious Petals

we are all gold.

Saturday was a GEM!

The 11th Annual Tom Waits Tribute Night brought the house down and put it back together. Thank you to all the performers: Sam Russell, The Foghorns, Kate Noson, Miss Mamie and Her Band, Eric Ray Anderson, Knathan Ryan, The Cabarailers, Ryan from the Kings, Harry Seth Herman... And, of course, Conor Byrne Pub.

We can't wait for the next one!

We have Ts!

Head on over to the shop and get one of these new straight razor Ts designed by A+C! Gorilla Screen Printing, down on First Ave in SoDo, were so great to work with and did a fantastic job. (Thanks Jon!)

Yoko and Ravi stylin' in our new Ts. Be like these cool kids and grab one this Saturday at the Tractor! (Fluffy pup not included.)

Lyric of the day: Redwinged

Lush leaves, they lie languid in the wind / Wisps of time and try again lingering on / The cellophane cage will stop making its slow spin / And even with feathers clipped by our kin / You know that only the redwinged / Can take flight like this
