Old 97s Young Evils Crafternoon

Join us Sunday, December 5th from 1pm-3pm at Neptune Coffee as we gather to craft holiday style. In this month’s edition of the Imaginary Crafternoon Listening Party, we’re going to work on our craft projects and listen three new releases in their entirety from beginning to end:

The Old 97’sThe Grand Theatre Volume One – The eighth studio album that somehow captures the vigor and daring of their live show (finally).

The Young EvilsEnchanted Chapel – One of our favorite releases of the year, from Seattle or otherwise. It’s full of “strumming, crisp drumming on a kick, tambourine, and a bright blue briefcase full of melodic punk-blues defines the schema.”

The Matinée Holiday Soirée – a 5-song ep featuring festive songs by Northern Portrait, Strawberry Whiplash, Bubblefum Whiplash, Chamgagne Riot, and Math and Physics Club that will be a holiday staple for years to come.

While listening to these three stellar releases, we’re going to have some paper craft projects going. We’ll have some card stock, craft paper, and scissors for folks to cut out snowflakes or create holiday cards. Feel free to bring any paper, craft punches, or crafty items to share and/or join in the fun.

You don’t have to partake in the craft paper piles, bring your own knitting needles, or current craft project and join us for fabulous crafty conversations and good times! As always, it’s a free all-ages event and we’d love to have you join us!

JUST ANNOUNCED: We’re going to have some hot crafty raffle action at this Sunday’s event. Participants will be entered in a raffle to win a fabulous partying gift {a pair of tickets to see the Old 97s at the Showbox on January 24, 2011 or a Matinee Recordings / Math and Physics Club indie-pop treasure}.
