A Drink For The Kids, the Vera Project’s annual benefit event for the 21-and-over crowd, is happening October 8th through 11th in bars across Seattle, including a grand finale show at Neumo’s on the Oct. 11th. All proceeds from the show and from any Red Hook and Dewar’s drinks purchased at the venues will help keep music and art accessible to people of all ages. So pick a spot in your neighborhood every night, and save Saturday October 11th for the show! By simply ordering a Redhook or Dewars and coming to a great show you can lend your support for the Vera Project, Seattle’s all-ages, volunteer-run music and arts space.
Well hello there, website-visitor! I’d just like to take a moment to talk to you about November 4th. Cool? Great, thanks. November 4th provides you, website-visitor, with an excellent opportunity to purchase three brand new singles from three different Sub Pop recording artists. Also, you should vote.

On October 7th, Stray Age, the debut recording from Daniel Martin Moore will be available to you on CD and as modern, downloadable MP3s. You’ve never heard of Daniel Martin Moore, from Cold Spring, Kentucky and that’s okay. Before we got his unsolicited demo in January 2007, neither had we. Luckily, he’d heard of us, and contacted us the way people in Cold Spring still do—he sent us a package, just to see what would happen. We caught up with Daniel while he was working at a friend’s bed and breakfast in Costa Rica. Recorded in Los Angeles in late 2007/early 2008, Stray Age is his stunning, understated debut.
If you pre-order Stray Age by October 7th, we’ll throw in, at no charge to you, a limited CDR featuring four demos, three of which are exclusive to this release. And, as-per-usual, you can expect some stickers and a button or two.
