“Want You To Know”: A Short Film By James Blose set to the music of A.C. Newman’s ‘Shut Down The Streets’
Do I need to repeat the information listed above? Quite possibly, if your eyesight sucks or you don’t have one of those new fancy Retina displays (HINT HINT). On Monday, October 8 our good friends at Brooklyn Vegan are presenting a bash to commemorate the following day’s U.S. release of AC Newman‘s ‘Shut Down The Streets’ at The Rock Shop (249 4th Avenue, Brooklyn). The evening is said to feature “a live performance, full album playback, drink specials, album giveaways, + more!” and I don’t know about you, but it’s the whole, ” + more!” portion of the pitch that really has my curiosity piqued. Surely a free AC Newman show would be enough to get you out of the house. Throw in the drink specials, swag giveaways, etc. and this already sounds too good to be true. But “more”? Either we’re promising more than one mere record release party can possibly deliver (hey, it wouldn’t be the first time) or this truly is the can’t miss event of early October, 2012 (in Brooklyn. on weeknights). I don’t think you wanna risk missing out on the latter. And the former already sounded pretty good to me. In fact, if I see you there, I’ll personally buy you a drink (keep in mind the room might be quite dark and my eyesight sucks).
You can score a free ticket to the 10/8 party by purchasing ‘Shut Down The Streets’ at one of the following NYC area independent shops. The following stores will have the LP/CD in stock the weekend prior :
