Your Golden Opportunity is Comeing Very Soon

Our dear friend RJ Shaughnessy has a very handsome new book we'll be launching at Family June 4, at 7:30pm. In a magical pairing, RJ's favorite band Abe Vigoda will be playing against a backdrop of his projected images.

Your Golden Opportunity is a collection of black and white photos documenting street damage caused by wayward vehicles around LA. RJ manages a subtly diverse range out of a rigid concept - it's intense, funny, affecting, and resonant.

Family Bookstore is proud to present the first release from Family Bookstore Records.

Asdsska 'Hold On'

Asdsska is a duo consisting of Aska Matsumiya (The Sads, Moonrats) and David Scott Stone (The Sads, Get Hustle, Unwound, Melvins). Matsumiya is a classical trained pianist and the single, '25', features a slow debussy-like piano refrain accompanied by her delicate voice and Stone's ethereal modular synthesizer drones. The B-side is 'We Feel it More Than They Do', an ambient instrumental variation on 25's melody.

Family will host a record release party with a live in-store Asdsska set backed by The Ladies Choir, made up of 14 singers.
There will also be a screening of the video directed by Spike Jonze and Crystal Moselle.
