Great scene at last night’s Acapulco Lips Album Release Party at Killroom Records studio. Take a listen to some of their tracks as a soundtrack as you read this. Surf’s up, don’t you think?

The event took place on the eve of Record Store Day, and how appropriate. They released it in vinyl! (and CD). And it was held in the industrial Georgetown neighborhood that’s under the shadows of nearby Mt. Rainier.

Pretty impressive studio, in that it’s in an industrial building heavily sound insulated. And that’s incredibly necessary here, bounded on one side by Interstate 5 traffic to the east and Boeing Field to the south. The test flights that go overhead are said to cause breaks in conversations because they’re so deafening.

The night was kicked off by a crack of the bull whip and a rocking’ band that, help, for the life of me I can’t recall or find their name. (If anyone knows it, please email me and I’ll update the post.) They rocked it.
