'switches shaking things up at Counter Culture
Counter Culture (www.counterculturestore.com) at Mockingbird Station is coming on strong this month, with 'Music Fridays' kicking off Feb. 1 and continuing every Friday night from 8 - 10 p.m. Counter Culture is giving local musicians/bands a venue to show off their talent, with any genre of music (from Indie to Metal) welcome. Anyone who's interested can call (214.414.1095) or stop by the store (5331 E. Mockingbird Lane, #110) during business hours to sign up.
And on Feb. 6, hot UK band, Switches (www.myspace.com/weareswitches), will be tuning up for their big opening act (for The Bravery) that night at The Granada Theater with a special afternoon performance at Counter Culture. So be there or be square.
In addition to Music Fridays, starting Feb. 1 Counter Culture also is featuring local artists of the month. An extension of the 'Art' part of Counter Culture's "Art.Fashion.Lifestyle" slogan, this program will spotlight a different local artist each month, with artwork by said artist displayed in Counter Culture's store as well as on its Web site.
All of this coincides with Counter Culture's year-round donation drive event, PROJECT JUXTAPOSITION, and its revamped Web site, which now offers real-time, remotely viewable inventory. So now you can see what's in store before you get there.
