graphic art // Squeak & Squawk Music Festival

squeak squawk shirt art

The good folks behind Tacoma, WA’s Squeak & Squawk music festival are hosting a fundraiser show (featuring Widowspeak!) for which they asked me to design graphic art to be printed on shirts and posters as part of the initiative. Can you find the two S’s? The two Q’s? How about the two mice and the two birds? What else do you see…?

This is a pretty tight lineup for the 4th annual TIMBRRR! Winter Music Festival in Leavenworth, WA—hope our chill poster art does the firecracker bands some justice!

TIMBRRR! Winter Music Festival year two was even better than year one (which set the bar high.) Friday night popped with a variety of fresh sounds from new wave to hip hop while Saturday night finished with a solid bang with the two-punch of Hobosexual followed by headliner headbangers Red Fang. Leavenworth was lovely, as always, and the waather gave us snow when and where we wanted it and left the roads clear. Thank you Kevin, Phil and Chad at Artist Home!

music film // The Moondoggies : “Roll Away”

We were on hand at Everett, Wash.’s Skate Deck for the roller skate release party of The Moondoggies‘ latest album Adios, I’m A Ghost.

Put us in a roller skating rink with cameras and we’re going to dive in quads first.  The Moondoggies asked us to use the footage to put together a music film for their b-side Roll Away and we were happy to oblige.

Original poster art for another fantastic music festival—music, snow, and more music in the Bavarian-rich Leavenworth, Wash.  There’s some heavy hitters on this bill and all in a really unique setting.

We had such an amazing time at TIMBER! Outdoor Music Festival this year—including, but not limited to: (1) sitting front-and-center through J Mascis‘ mind-altering set, (2) watching Damien Jurado‘s gorgeous set from our tent, (3) the Milky Way overhead, (4) swimming in the river with good friends, (5) feeling a world away in Tolt-MacDonald Park, and (6) spending the weekend with some of our favorite people and artists. Thank you Kevin, Phil and Chad at Artist Home! Photos are below and films are to come…!

video // Musical Plates : OK Sweetheart

Lucky, lucky us. We again had the good fortune of joining Seattle’s only (and best!) mobile food tour as it added a local band to the mix for a night of indie pop, mouthwatering eats and a four-wheeled foray up, down and all about town and into some of Seattle’s best kept culinary secrets.

We’re firm believers that White Moustache gastro-guide Bryce Lathrop is one part Bacchanalian storyteller, two parts food anthropologist and three parts epicurean shaman. Meaning, he has the epicure for all that ails you and you’ll emerge from your food coma two days later boasting some anecdotal food history to boot. In a perfect interlacing of the senses, he invited one of our favorite up-and-coming bands OK Sweetheart to serenade a busload of gleefully gluttonous traveling tastebuds.  Bryce played raconteur and the band played songs sweeter than milk and honey and everyone filled their bellies with cupcakes, barbecue, fried pickles and heaven.

Take a look at the video above (or the shorter videos below) for a glimpse at the night.

If you like what you see, don’t hesitate to purchase tickets for the next Musical Plates food tour!
