We Like The Like

The Like

L.A. band The Like are cute as hell and gifted in the way of the dreamy pop hook.

Motel Gallery

Motel Gallery

Portland's Motel Gallery has an impressive roster of artists. A fave from the list is Megan Whitmarsh, whose knitted, intergalactic worlds featuring yetis, crystals, boomboxes, and Flying Vs are pure gold.

The Ponys Kansas In-Store


More FreeYrRadio madness. This time The Ponys ripped it at our Lawrence, KS store. (Donate to KJHK here. More pix here.)

Smile Forever Zine

Smile Forever

There is something so sweetly demented about the characters in Michael Sieben's artwork. If you're quick, you can grab his latest zine, which is a signed edition of 200.

What is C.H.U.N.K. 666?

C.H.U.N.K. 666

We think they say it best: "C.H.U.N.K. 666 is a mutant bicycle jaunting club, tallbike youth brigade and civic betterment society based in Portland, Oregon, USA."

Jen Stark

Jen Stark

Jen Stark probably wasn't thinking of her future when they handed her the safety scissors back in kindergarten. 20 years later she's busting out these intricate, kaleidoscopic, rainbow construction paper explosions.



Selfportrait is a new online artist community where you can post your photography, studio art, film, writing or whatever creative juice you're sippin'. We liked the cosmic factor of the Eric Shaw piece we found there.

Suupaa Pop

Suupa Pop

Suupaa Pop: Package Design from Japan is going on now through May 25th at The Gallery at AIGA National Design Center. Check check it out. (Via Fly)

Deanne Cheuk's Creative Juggernaut


Australian export Deanne Cheuk is an unstoppable tidal wave of creativity. Whatever she touches - art direction for Urban Outfitters' catalogs, her portraits of celebs, the apparel line Liness (which finds her teamed up with Rilla Alexander of Rinzen) - is imbued with a sense of the sublime and ethereal.



Bed down with one of these evil rock quilts and you're guaranteed some heavy metal dreams. They're one-of-a-kind and come from the sinister studio of Boo Davis.

Late Spring 2007 Video

A video from our late Spring catalog.

May Dazed


Counting the days until the new Dazed.

On Your Marc

Marc Jacobs

Super cheap and seriously limited, these Marc Jacobs totes are only $12. Unless of course you miss out in stores - then they're as much as the stranger bidding against you on eBay is willing to pay. (Only for sale at Marc Jacobs stores.)

Chau Frau

Chau Frau

Philadelphia artist Kris Chau makes pretty pictures of pretty girls. Check 'em out here.

Sarah Style


We heart Sarah (you know her from our catalog and our website, right?) and it's good to see her getting some shine. Here she is taking charge on the cover of Preen, one of our favorite new mags.

Klaxons Chicago In-Store


Klaxons showed up at our Wicker Park store on Sunday for their Free Yr Radio gig and blew doors. (Donate to WLUW here. More pix here.)

The Whitest Boy Alive

Geoff McFetridge strikes again. This time he provides hand-drawn animation for The Whitest Boy Alive's beautiful "Golden Cage" video.



Uffie, part of the Ed Banger heat pack, spits brat-tastic electro-rap over squiddly finger snaps on her recent "Pop The Glock" and "Hot Chick" 12"s. Stay out of her way -or don't- as she's already let us know that she's "Ready to Uff". Dangerous.

Let the Rhythm Hit 'em

Miami Winter Music Conference

This is how they do in Miami when the Winter Music Conference is in town. (Via The Cobrasnake.)

Refill Seven Laserdeck Show

Refill Seven

An amazing traveling art show featuring an equally stunning list of artists. Each artist has been asked to explore the idea of lasering away the seven layers of ply of a skateboard deck to leave their own distinctive mark. More info and dates here.
