'FOOD COURT' was an extraordinary event held this past Saturday night to support NOW-ID at MALL. The night was organized by board member Gary Vlasic, (V-Project), featuring a menu by chef Robert Angelilli. We were elbow to elbow with some marvelous souls. Thank You so much for being there!


We were treated to a brief music performance by Two Nations, who gave the visitors to MALL a preview of their upcoming album 'After Midnight' ...which is pretty darn amazing and you should listen to it here

We're obsessed.

krcl polar jubilee

Some great photos by the force of nature that is David Newkirk from this past Friday at KRCL's annual 'Polar Jubilee' which was held in a vacant shop space at historic Trolley Square. Loved the looks on display backed by bowie-esque rock bands and a retro sci-fi soundtrack that bled into a stellar space disco dance party! Thanks again for the invite Bad Brad Wheeler and everyone at the station who made it so fun.
