Hello loyal subpop.com readers, I am sorry that it has been so long since we’ve last corresponded. But! As you may or may not know, we’ve recently moved offices from our old hoborific joint to 5 blocks up the beautiful Seattle streets. Our new offices have the luxury of an interoffice bathroom, not to be used by wino’s, grifters, vagrants, or the like. We also now come equipped with air hockey, a dishwasher, and a big fucking tv. But not everything has been gravy around here, we’re all catching up with all of the work we’ve not been doing in preparation for the move. In other bad news, our front desk lady Alissa got her car broken into in the new lot and her gym clothes stolen (crackheads apparently love to wear sports bras and spandex?) and I got kicked out of an A Frames show for being far too drunk. My cantankerous blacked out behavior was not appreciated at that show near as much as I thought it would be. Luckily this time when I blacked out though I didn’t try to ride my bike, and I made it home just fine, sans brokenface. Whilst all of this tom foolery has been going on around us we’ve also been planning a monumental CMJ event for you, our loyal fans. This year we are presenting to you Constantines, Fruit Bats, Rogue Wave, Chad VanGaalen, Wolf Parade, Holopaw, and Kinski. So if you haven’t heard yet, check out this fancy postcard and get over there to try and get in… And if you are unfortunate enough to not be in the New York area for this event, you might still be able to catch Chad VanGaalen, Rogue Wave, and Fruit Bats on tour around the nation together, so look at the tour section for the date nearest to you. Good Luck and stay tuned for more info. in the coming weeks.
