Hey y'all! Sorry it's been a minute (or kind of almost a year?) since my last update. It's been a weird chunk of time. METAMORPHASIS! SATURN RETURN! WHATEVER! Like it or not, I'm back to regularly update this blog, damnit! So check the pic, that's me (thanks Rachel!) in the window of our new store, Fond Object. We've been batting around one-liners to try and succinctly describe what Fond Object IS. For one, if you look on the back of the WICKED WILL LP or the TEETH single, you will see that Fond Object is the Ettes' record label. It's new, it's our own, we will be releasing our music and other music we like henceforth in perpetuity ad nauseum. But Fond Object THE STORE is so much more! It is a shop to showcase FIT-grad Poni's latest designs (www.blackbymariasilver.com). It is a gallery and display space for artist Rachel Briggs (www.rachelbriggs.com). It is a record player store and repair shop. It's a place to come sit in the awesome and massive fenced back yard to watch those JANUS FILMS my awesome friends got me for my 30th. And square footage-wise -- and this is so exciting -- it is a record store. More on where the stock is coming from later, but suffice it to say our amazing friend El Jefe Del Guapo is trucking up over 20,000 of his records to stock this rad store, and I DON'T KNOW ANYBODY WITH BETTER TASTE THAN HIM. Y'all don't even KNOW! So that's what Fond Object is! The A/C and lights come on tomorrow. Saturday is paint day. We'll open when we're ready. So get ready.
It's kind of almost Halloween!!!
