The smoke has finally cleared from the big DJ Car Stereo (Wars) release party and we are finally coming up for air. Everyone that came thru the door was treated to a complimentary one of a kind CD as well as LCD Soundsystem songs played live by All My Friends, a sweaty set from Neiliyo and the bangers of Hot Britches! The whole evening was made great in part by the free lager from our friends at Brooklyn Brewery, the hard work of the Beauty Bar staff and lest we forget the HUGE help in promotion we got from some of the best online resources around : Austinist, Lamebook, and DO512! Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who came out to take part in the big event with us! We hope you had as much fun as we did!
If you would like to download the album, feel free to give a donation of any amount (it ALL helps!)- OR if you would like your own unique hand puff painted physical copy of the record- all you have to do is pay for shipping and handling! The choice is yours! More information on both HERE.
UloveI was out on the town Friday night and caught a lot of the shenanigans on film. Check out all of the action HERE.

We are getting more excited by the day about this Friday’s big release of the new DJ Car Stereo (Wars) album Explains it All! It’s going down at the Beauty Bar with free Brooklyn Lager and plenty more surprises when the doors open at 9pm.
The bill reads like a line of up of Austin All-Stars, featuring LCD Soundsystem tribute band All My Friends (10pm), recent Artifact Workshop alumni and one-man electro wonder Neiliyo (11pm), and an opening DJ set by Hot Britches! (11:40).
Everyone thru the door that evening will walk away with a free hand (puff) painted copy of the new CD so the digital pop culture explosion doesn’t have to stop when the bar closes. We double dare you to name all the snippets of music on Explains it All.
The show is sponsored in part by Austinist, Lamebook, DO512, and Brooklyn Brewery.
Please download on of our favorite tracks from the album “Whoah Dude,”

It has been an exciting and busy chunk of time for Artifact Workshop the past several months. We put out a soapbox full of boom-bap with CUSTODIAN in November, a slap bracelet full of electro-fun(k) with Neiliyo in February and now we are pleased to announce our fifth overall release will be coming from DJ Car Stereo (Wars)! The AW launch party back in August of 2007 doubled as the release party for the first DJ CS(W) release the Bandit, a record that garnered attention from Absolute Punk, Gorilla Vs. Bear, StereoGum and MORE. We are currently working hard on making the next installment in the mashup artist’s discography as great as it can possibly be; more details to come but know this for now: It will be titled Explains it All, and will have an epic release party at the Beauty Bar in Austin TX April 23rd with live performances by Neiliyo, the nation’s premiere LCD Sound System tribute band All My Friends, Hot Britches, and of course DJ CS(W)! Stay tuned and mark those calendars now!
