Manny Torres & 2NDWND at Native Sol – June Artwalk LB

20120701-105738.jpgI was invited to spin records at my friend's shop during the 2nd Saturday Art Walk in Long Beach this past June.  Native Sol is an earth friendly lifestyle store, located in the East Village Arts District.  They offer products that are Organic, hand-made, local, fair-trade, upcycled, and sustainable. 

Native Sol had a guest artist named Manny Torres, who had a table set up with his unique, later etched jewelry under the moniker 2NDWND.  He was selling pieces etched out of old vinyl records.  He gave this cassette piece to me at the end of the night.  Big up!

Really looking forward to this documentary.  Long Beach heads can see this at The Art Theater on Friday, May 4th at 11:30pm.  It is important for us to take the time to learn and cherish the memory of Bob Marley.  His messages still ring true today in so many ways.

Cool Record Cover…

Went digging yesterday and found this Olatunji record.  How can you pass up a record that says Afro-Percussion?!  Listened to it on the Crosley at the store, took it to the counter, bagged it up, went home, and it’s been sitting there until this evening.  While looking over the art work, I noticed an interesting thing embedded in the cover.  Check it out…
