Family is proud to present Boom, an exhibition of two color silkscreen prints by artists from Europe and the US. The prints are deftly hand silkscreened, the two-color limit lending to experiments with multi-colored pulls, varnishes, and neons. Produced at the Lower East Side Printshop in the tradition of Barbara Kruger and Kara Walker.

The opening will include the debut performance of Vibes (members of Pocahaunted and Robedoor).

You may know Holly Stevenson from her book of drawings, Mexican Love Story, published by Nieves.

Drawlings + Infinite Body
Live! Free!

We are proud to present two very awesome solo acts from each coast playing live. Drawlings is NY'er Abby Portner of Rings new solo project. Abby is also a visual artist and you've probably seen her art but maybe didn't know it, like on the Sung Tongs record by Animal Collective (she did the flyer for the instore too!).

Infinite Body is LA native Kyle Parker's beautiful / damaged / ambient music and after a bit of hibernation Kyle has started playing shows again. We have his self-released CD in the shop, which was definitely one of my favorite releases from 2008, and with upcoming records on PPM, Monorail Trespassing, and Teenage Teardrops, you'll probably have a hard time ignoring him in 2009.
