When: Wednesday, September 28 – 8pm
Why: The songs on St. Croix were recorded during Family of the Year’s sessions with accomplished producer Wally Gagel (Eels, Norah Jones, Old 97s) and serve as a precursor to their full-length tinyOGRE Entertainment debut coming out in early 2012. “From a rich, sweet-toothed tapestry seemingly lined with the DNA of Don MacLean, Ben Folds, Arcade Fire and, more recently Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, come Family of the Year” -NME

Hear ye, hear ye: The always wacky wunderman Wayne Coyne will be paying a little visit to Portland’s own Jackpot Records to present the exclusive release of the new 6-hour song: “I Found This Star On the Ground” along with the ultra-fun Strobo Trip toy.
Wayne and friends (you?) will be at the downtown location (203 SW 9th Ave, 97205) tomorrow, Sep. 20 at 5pm. This will be the one and only chance to get your hands on the STROBO TRIP! Stop by, say hi, won’t you?
Our inaugural issue is available at many, many places in Portland such as the Tender Loving Empire store, Kelly’s Olympian, Jackpot Records, most Pizzicato locations, nearly anywhere on Hawthorne St. and plenty of other coffee shops, music venues, record and music stores, restaurants and cantinas, and especially college campuses.
This (one) one’s for you, Portland!
