DJ Car Stereo (Wars) is leaving the bagels and pizza by the slice of Brooklyn behind and returning to Austin for migas and BBQ this weekend as he plays at the Beauty Bar on Saturday the 19th and then again on Sunday the 20th at the Mohawk for a big Austin Music Foundation shin dig.
Recently – the new album Explains it All was featured on Say It Like Slam who hypothesized: “ that mashup mixtapes are the best workout albums. If done correctly, they are a seamless hour of party music. And if you’re anything like me, you need something upbeat to keep you going between the 2nd and 3rd mile of your run! Another (awesome) mixtape to join the ranks of Girl Talk, DJ AM and Mochi Beats is DJ Car Stereo (Wars)!”

Things have been quite busy in Artifact Workshop land but ultimately been going great! Emily is finished with her school year, and thus leaving that profession behind and ready to embark on a new one. On her last day of school her food-writing project Gnocchi No Plan (it’s an Okkervil River reference ya’ll) received internet laurels from TWO of our favorite websites! We are taking this a good sign of things to come.
The Austin American Statesmen’s online presence Austin 360 took a peak in our refrigerator for their column What’s In Your Fridge Friday. Writer Addie Broyles stated that Emily “is as obsessed with music as she is food.” In addition to pimping our love for garlic and local beers, the article also managed to provide some props for Neiliyo who had one of the busiest weeks ever playing a huge outdoor festival in Houston as well as opening slots at two sold out shows in Austin. He’s not finished yet either: he’ll be in New York playing a show at the Delancy this week and soon after that in Chicago! Read the whole article on Emily HERE!
Emily’s personal and incredibly educational writings were also praised on Recovering Lazyholic, a webpage that encourages you to get up and make something yet simultaneously makes you stay in front of the screen reading about all the cool stuff on the site itself. It’s a brilliant catch 22. Erin from Recovering Lazyholic was the radiant mind behind the art for the Neiliyo Game Night slap bracelets, so we have a lot of respect for her. Emily’s food writing getting co-signed by Recovering Lazyholic is a awesome stamp of approval. Read the whole thing HERE.
