This month, we’ll be featuring the work of photographer Jim Thomson on our walls. Also known as Jimmy T, he grew up near Washington DC on an apple orchard in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He played drums in GWAR and SST Records instrumental group the Alter Natives. After moving to Brooklyn, he joined CSC Funk Band and launched Electric Cowbell, a record label specializing in releasing mostly vinyl 45RPM records in the “underworld music” category. And he also manages the 30-piece punk-circus marching band Mucca Pazza.
We’ll be celebrating his work on Friday, June 8th from 7-9pm in the shop. Come on in and check it out!
