The Insound 20: Custom Clothes, 826 Benefit, Launch Party Friday

We here at HAD have been big fans of Insound for a while now (in fact, we just got our new Sea and Cake vinyl from them today!). They've really taken the concept of the online record store and done it right. They have great selection, great service and competitive prices. More importantly, they package their vinyl correctly so that it arrives in pristine condition. Yum.

Given all that, we were psyched to hear that Insound has collaborated with local silkscreen house The Small Stakes to create the "Insound 20". The set is a collection of clothing and posters designed by The Small Stakes exclusively for Insound in limited editions, and to be frank, most of them look pretty cool. On top of all that, the proceeds go to benefit the New York chapter of Dave Egger's 826 charity.

So, what does this all mean for you, you ask? Well, Insound and The Small Stakes have decided to have a launch party for the Insound 20 right here in San Francisco! The shindig is going to be at The Curiousity Shoppe this Friday night (the 21st) from 6-9PM and wine and snacks will be served to those lucky attendees. What can we say? Music? Art? Wine? Sounds like a good time! Get yerself on down to the Mission to see some product.

As an aside, The Small Stakes just released a poster for last week's Crooked Fingers gig. Neat.

I got that Crooked Finger Small Stakes poster at the show. I sort of freaking out the merch lady by asking if that was a poster by the Small Stakes, despite only seeing it from a few feet away. What can I say, I'm sort of a Small Stakes fan boy.

I picked up a great Spoon poster (of course) at the event. Love Small Stakes.
