this friday – exile in austin!

Post image for this friday – exile in austin!

just a couple of days to go before we head down to austin for our july catalog release party! we are so excited to go back to the live music capital to celebrate with the happen-ins, who are featured in the catalog, and photographer alexandra valenti!

i’ll have more photos and info (and a free download!) from the happen-ins once the catalog drops, but today i wanted to introduce you to the guys who will be playing a live show at our party on friday!

happenins

the happen-ins are (from left): ricky ray jackson – guitar/vocals, john michael dayspring – bass, falcon valdez – drums, and (front) sean faires – guitar/vocals.

formed in early 2009, the happen-ins quickly grew a following in austin where their blend of r&b grooves and gritty americana rock suit the live music capital to a t.   their sound and style has an authenticity to it that is refreshing, setting them apart from other up and coming acts. they pride themselves on developing their own culture and building a community around their music – their connection to their fan base is a huge part of what makes them so loved.  for all of these reasons, we knew they were perfect to appear in our austin catalog! their long haired, bell bottomed, vintage rock style and good looks were of course a plus :)

here’s a little preview of some of their tunes to get you ready for friday’s party. check them out and just try not to shake your hips!

I was so excited to find out you guys are coming back to Austin for the release party. I picked out my Free people outfit for the party a couple days ago already. Can’t wait to meet you and express how passionate I am about Free people!!! Not sure if you have seen a sneak peak of the video I am working on with a friend. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1y-iBNLBzr4&feature=channel_video_title
It’s going to be a Free people promotion videos of the clothes I’ve purchased from Free since March 2011. I am totally hooked, and just want to show other girls how to dress in Free from a customer’s point of view instead of a professional model.
Anyway!!! I am soooo excited. I use Nikon D90, and will take photos of the party. Then my friend may record, and we will post a video of July catlog release party video on Youtube. Anyway, it should be fun!!!!!!!!!!!
Can’t wait!!!!!!
:)
