My favorite shoe store (and the shoe store of the Beastie Boys) Harputs is throwing a party. They're 10 years old now and want you to help them celebrate on April 27th in San Fransisco. Rachel Yamagata, Michael McDermott, and The Nice Device will help them raise money for an organization called Our Conservatory. It's a musical instrument library that helps at risk kids find their passion thru music.
The Nice Device is from Detroit, but is not in the typical vein of the motor city garage or soul sounds. Instead, they make pop music. The Brits are already hip to them. You can vote for them at NME.
