• Band of Horses – “Acoustic At The Ryman” 7 inch
• Billy Bragg and Wilco – “Mermaid Avenue Volume 1″
• Billy Bragg and Wilco – “Mermaid Avenue Volume 2″
• Charles Bradley – “Changes” 7 inch
• Fallout Boy – “Pax Am Days” 2×7 inch
• Flaming Lips – “Peace Sword” LP
• Harry Nilsson – “A Selection of Rarities” LP
• Nick Cave – “Live From KCRW” LP
• Puscifer – “8 Ball Bail Bonds” LP
• Rockabye Baby Pearl Jam – “Lullaby Renditions of Pearl Jam” LP

This week, I launched a new online shop called Close By. Orders can be shipped in the US, internationally or if you live in Seattle–you can come to Porchlight to pick up your order for free. Close By carries Poler, CXXVI and more, including exclusive stuff!
On November 16th, Greg Attonito (of the Bouncing Souls) and Shanti Wintergate will be bringing their family-friendly band Play Date to Seattle. Come see ‘em on Saturday, the 16th for only $5 and get some free gummy worms and juice boxes.
We were very lucky to have the incredibly talented Jon Contino as part of our Sandlot themed group show here at Porchlight. These giclee prints are limited to just ten and there are only a few left but we wanted to give you out-of-towners a chance to own one. These prints are on 8″ x 10″ thick matte watercolor paper with a 1/2 inch border and real limited for $75. Folks in the USA, click here to buy one. For international orders, click here.
BIG, BIG thank you to all the folks that came out to the Sandlot Art Show last night. It went about as perfectly as one could hope, and everyone seemed to have a great time. The artwork will be up until December, so you’ve got time to come see it if you missed out last night.
This has been a couple months in the making, so it’s great to finally unveil it to everyone!

Now that Fall is upon us, everyone you know will be complaining about the weather for the next 9 months. To drown out the aforementioned, as well as ease you into hibernation, we’ll be recommending some vinyl that’s juuust great for Fall.
This next Fall record recommendation is the debut full length from a real great collection of musicians that includes members of Bedhead, Centro-Matic, and Pedro The Lion (Bubba & Matt Kanane, Will Johnson, and David Bazan respectively). These four have created a somber collective called Overseas, that is destined to bum you out in a great way. The LP is available here in the shop in limited quantities. Take a listen and a peek at the record below and come out to Neumos on October 11th to see them live!
“Hey, you wanna s’more?”
On October 17th Porchlight is hosting a collection of artwork inspired by The Sandlot. The collective résumé of all the artists is prettttty impressive and the show is guaranteed to be fantastic.
