tonight is the finale party for the design by the book video series with the nypl and i just wanted to post a quick addendum because we’ve had to change rooms in the party to make room for the 350+ rsvps (we’ve hit our guest limit so unfortunately the rsvp list is now closed). we’ve been blown away by the response and are so excited to see everyone there. if you’re planning on coming, please meet us at 6:30 at the main library at 5th avenue and 42nd street- but please be sure to enter on the 42nd street side. in addition to an advance screening of the final episode, we will be selling tickets for a raffle (proceeds to benefit the library) to win items like ‘listen lady’ jewelry designed by lorena barrezueta, julia rotham’s luxury apts print, prints from mike perry’s LA show at tinlark gallery, and books by rob ryan, lena corwin, lotta jansdotter and more. we’ll also have a quick q&a with the artists so bring a question with you and we’ll see you there!
[also, come early to the party- the first 50 people to arrive with get a copy of the zine that mike perry made for design by the book as well as a copy of our series’ soundtrack- ‘brutal’ by the clear tigers]
also, i posted about wedding music today at martha stewart and in the process of researching that i came across some really fantastic ‘soundies’ from eikon productions in athens, ga. athens is home to such an incredible music scene it’s hard to even describe how good it is (it’s on my short list of cities to settle in when we start a family, along with chapel hill, nc). but needless to say, i’ve been watching these for hours and hours and they haven’t grown old yet. if you’re looking for a little musical break in your day, just CLICK HERE to watch the videos after the jump. the second band, corduroy road, is playing at our wedding (with ian thomas)! yay bluegrass!
