Our first of many collaborations with Nylon Magazine is an insert in their new August issue featuring the awesome French pop-punk band Plastiscines. Editor Marvin Scott Jarrett shot the girls looking good (very good if we say so ourselves) in our clothing, and it's clear to see that this is a band you're gonna want to keep an eye on. (More pix here.)
This weekend it's time for the Wicker Park Fest, one of Chicago's best street festivals. Beyond the Vienna Beef you're bound to stuff your face with you're gonna want to see the bands. The line up this year is looking big time: Man Man, the Thermals, a live band set from Prefuse 73, and the Benevento/Russo Duo play Saturday, and Sunday sees High on Fire and the reformed Don Caballero set to crush. All for $5!! You can't beat that.
Paperplane is a travel magazine from the Monster Children gallery people so right off the bat you know it's gonna be quality. We like the fact that it's downloadable as a pdf, beautifully shot, informatively written and really focuses on unique locales. Look for issue 5 soon.

It actually sold out on Etsy before it's street date (Aug 12). So just make a note of their site as issue 2 is coming together, like, now. (Via decor8.)
Stencil artist by day, tender of plants by nite? Whatever his schedule is, Posterchild is trying to pretty up Toronto, one renegade planter box at a time.

We designed these killer tees for the event and you can get 'em at all 3 of our Seattle locations.
We gave away some free tickets to this Baltimore hoe-down just the other day but even if you didn't win you should still keep this festival on your radar and get there if you've got one good thumb or some gas money.
The name of the track says it all. Plastic Little are straight twisted.
