In case you didn't know, this weekend is the Harvest of Hope Festival in our hometown, St Augustine, Florida. Some of the best indie, hip hop, punk, and rock bands will be performing. Maybe you've heard of Broken Social Scene or Dead Prez or Kool Keith or Man Man, and that's only a few of them. There are over 160 bands slated to perform, CHECK OUT THE FULL LINE-UP HERE. And of course, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to check out these groups and at the same time sling some of our fine goods, so we will have a booth set-up where we will be selling our tees, including our yet un-released spring line. As if that wasn't enough, we are setting up shop to be able to print t-shirts on the spot of designs that we have made up specifically for the weekend, never to be seen again afterwards. Your not going to want to miss this.
Our good friend, DJ Japancakes has just dropped his latest mix, In For the Kill, in both digital and hard copy format. It's a stealthy mix of hip-hop, indie and old school jams that is guaranteed, i repeat, GUARANTEED to wake the dead. Kudos, Mr. Cakes
While the well-below normal temperatures here in the sunshine state are getting to be obnoxious, and the farmers are getting tired of their citrus plants dying, and the iguanas and manatees are getting tired of just dying in general. We here at paper root are taking advantage of the situation to stay in the lab longer and later, and the resulting spring release is looking sharp. Now we're stuck with the dilemma of when is a good time to unleash this release, while most of the country is still wearing gore-tex parkas and galoshes. Oh well, check out a sneak peak below.
This band has got me going lately. They just released their US debut last week and i'm sure they're going to be buzzed about for some time to come. I'm equally pumped to find out that they will be playing a show at the venue I work with in St. Augustine, Cafe Eleven. Check out their music below, and come find me at the show at Cafe Eleven in April...
