Saturday Night Decisions

Saturday Night’s All Right For Fighting

Connecticut is pretty small. It’s a small world, really. CT is just part of that small world.  Part of a part of a part of a part (CT, USA, Northwestern Hemisphere, Earth).  Within CT people involved with music production and events are even a smaller part of that smaller world within worlds. Saturday night has a very small circle biding for your time in very differently fun ways. Chill out with the final nail in the coffin to the summer of 2010 for Popeye’s Garage. Or party hard at the last outdoor event of the year with the Hartford Party Starters. Heck, if you can’t actually decide or if you’re just lazy, then go with whatever’s closest.

Anecdotal Evidence Of Life On Earth

Tonight at Redscroll we have a bunch of people speaking. Some will read their poems. Some will tell stories. A few of them have worked on some projects done by Hot Air Press.

What is Hot Air Press? A publishing company? Yea, I mean sort of. They’ve definitely put a bunch of collected works of poetry and such (there is one particular that definitely qualifies as “such”). A record label? Maybe, yea. They have put out a handful of releases on wax. Cold Snap, Ipsissimus, Mammoth Hunter, & Florida=Death have all released music with them. An eclectic mix, for sure (weird hardcore, black metal, instrumental denseness, and improv-friendly hip-hop sensibilities all have found their way to the Hot Air Press).

What it really comes down to is that it’s a group of friends in a small state in the north-east trying to make the most out of what is directly around them. Connecticut based bands, artists, poets and people who just generally need a creative outlet can look to Hot Air Press. Come by the shop tonight and meet these dudes. Hear them speak… along with a bunch of other friendly types.

Sale Starts Tomorrow: VIDEOS! Fun!

I made a couple videos this week. You might have seen them already via some other social networking sites. If not, check them here. The last one was just finished this morning and looks the most professional and is probably the best looking video on our youtube page to date because of the work of my friend Brian (Erzen Design).

Full information on the sale is back at this post:
