‘Arrested Development’ Returns Party + CD Baby Sponsorship!

We feel like the Belle of the ball this week. If you haven't already seen the news over on Hypebot, we announced a new sponsorship deal with CD Baby!

Plus, we're just days away from our Arrested Develpment Returns Party at Holocene on May 8th!

Here are all the details of the party:

Three awesome bands! The We Shared Milk (recently named one of the Best New Bands by WWeek), Animal Eyes, and Tango Alpha Tango. Each will be performing one cover song from the show! The We Shared Milk will perform “Big Yellow Joint,” Animal Eyes will play “The Final Countdown,” and Tango Alpha Tango will cover “Afternoon Delight.” Plus, the first 100 attendees will get free album downloads from the bands courtesy of CD Baby!

DJ sets by Trim Jones! Come early and stay late to groove with one of our favorite electronic acts in town.

Bluth Family costume-contest! We've done it before and we hope you'll join us again. Rumor is Franklin might even make an appearance! Plus, “Chicken Dance” dance-off! Prizes for both contests include gift-cards to Veggie Grill and Double Dragon, a Banana Stand prize package, and a month-long, VIP membership to all the events at Holocene!

We're also having an Art Show featuring a variety of Arrested Development prints made by local artists. You may have seen some of the prints on Portland Pulp this week, but if not, here they are in all their glory:


“Buster” by Allyson Haller


“The Mole” by Ryan Hill


“Gangy 4” by Terry Blas


“Millford Man” by Carolyn Main


A limited number of these prints will be available for sale at the show with all proceeds going directly to the individual artists.

We'll also have banana slushies, clips from the show, and who knows what else! Anything can happen when you share a cell, 'cos. (You can't tell, but we just winked.)

The party is being sponsored by CD Baby and our long-time friends over at The Portland Mercury, who recently named Dustin Mills' poster for the event as the best of the week.

Get your tickets to the Arrested Development Returns Party at Stranger Tickets in advance, or on May 8th at the door. And if you're into that sort of thing, RSVP on Facebook

2013 got off to an incredible year with our release of the Grandparents live album, and we're working to make sure the rest of the months are equally great. We're so thrilled to have our live albums being distributed and produced by the Portland-based CD Baby, and we can't wait to show you what the new albums look like. As always, a huge thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way: our partners at Collective-47 Productions, Tim, Chris, Adam, Vita Mastering, and all the wonderful people who show up to our little space month after month to hear great music. I love you all, Marta!
