It’s Black Friday. Black Friday is still terrible. Supporting local art isn’t. Here’s a quick list of alternative ways to spend your hard earned dollars than fighting crowds at the chain stores.
- Pick up some new music from a local band. The Sheila Divine, Goddamn Draculas, Party Bois, Worshipper and Weakened Friends have all put out amazing music in the past few months that is worth listening to on endless repeat.
- Help art get made! Abbie Barrett and Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys are making new records. I’m sure they’d appreciate your support.
- Did you know the design and illustration arm of the Daykamp Empire has an Etsy store? You can pick up show posters, art prints and even holiday cards!
- Save your money for the ROCKIN FLEA MARKET + BLOODY MARY BASH! Bridget Haley will have crocheted tacos. They’re amazing. Just don’t eat them.
If you do go out to the stores today, think about keeping it local. Oh, and pick up something for Anngelle Wood’s Spectacular Gift Drive for DCF Kids Fund.
