Record of the Month Club

Record of the Month Club

Every month, we nominate a bookseller-endorsed LP for Record of the Month and promote the album, band, and label throughout the course of the month.We put heavy emphasis on local and/or off-the-beaten track artists and labels with the intention of bringing support and attention to our community's vibrant creative landscape.

At 7pm on the last Saturday of the month we host a FREE listening party at our 9th Ave location and spin the album in-store.

So Many Books, So little Time. We can help with that! Apple-A-Month Club

Apple-A-Month Club

Sometimes the hardest part of picking your next book to read is the choosing itself! Our Apple-A-Month club is a subscription service that sends you 1 new release fiction paperback per month.

The books are hand picked by our staff and most always from a small press so that 1) we can support these books that we believe in that do not have big publisher marketing, and 2) we can be confident that you do not already have this on your shelf.

June Bookseller's Choice

Each month, we select a brand new book that we love so much that we guarantee you'll love it too.

For this month, we have chosen The Future Was Color by Patrick Nathan

Cover of Patrick Nathan's The Future Was Color. The cover is an painting of a masculine figure, face down on a pink floaty in a clear blue swimming pool.

George is a screenwriter in McCarthy-era Los Angeles, writing about where monsters come from. His vision is doubled as a gay Hungarian immigrant, who is trying to decipher between true friends and enemies, awaits their chance to strike. The Future Was Color is an incredibly rich text that stares the reader directly back in the face. It is difficult to read this book and not be floored by beauty of each sentence. I cannot recommend it enough. —Zoe
