Sink or Swim
Today is your absolute last chance to score some deals on cool wax and CDs at Echo Park's Sea Level Records, which is letting stuff go ridiculously cheap before it closes its doors for good tonight.
While Tower Records on Sunset enjoyed new life (if only for a night) as Icky Thump Records courtesy of the White Stripes last week, the real Indie crowd bid adieu to the the much smaller record store last Friday night at Safari Sams, which was by all accounts a sad affair, though we hear sets by The Switch and Division Day helped brighten the buh-byes.
We're just waiting to see what SL's Todd & Sylvia will do next. After their DJ sets on Little Radio last week, we think a show on the station would do swimmingly.
By the way, LR's "Summer Camp" BBQ's are in full swing again, though they are no longer free since some jackasses stole stuff from the warehouse a couple weeks ago. But 10 bucks is totally worth it for blow-up pool fun, free drinks and bands like Burning Brides (who played this past Sunday) and The Raveonettes doncha think?
Check out these slip n' slide pics we took there last summer.
