Our good friends over at Earfarm (one Poptarts favorite blogs of 2009) just put out a holiday compilation disc amusingly titled “Do you EAR what I EAR?” and they are having little record release/holiday party tonight (Dec 18) at Spike Hill in honor of it. If I didn’t have my own office party to attend tonight, I would definitely be there. Here’s a little more info on this evening’s festivities:
Dearest of EAR FARMErs –
We’re having a FREE party tonight. It’s an EAR FARM family party/holiday show… if we all lived in the suburbs, this would be a free keg party in Matt’s basement and you all would be spending the night on couches and spots on the floor, but we don’t.
Instead, we’ll be at Spike Hill in Brooklyn. Steps from the Bedford L stop. And yes, it’s still an entirely FREE show. Everyone who comes will get a little free gift from EAR FARM, and will be treated to some live music entertainment from the bands listed below.
While you’re there tonight, please find Mike or Matt and say hi, we’d love to see each of you and thank you for making it such a fun time. Also, be on the lookout for the donation bucket… if you’re feeling generous, please donate some money to the charity we’re working with this holiday season: the Association to Benefit Children. All proceeds from this show, and from our recently released holiday album Do you EAR what I EAR? will go directly to the ABC.
Thanks again, see you there, and happy holidays from the EF crew!
