A&R is Jetting to New York. Join us in wishing them off with much Chicago love May 21st at the Double Door. The show is FREE! So come have a drink, buy them a drink, jam to some tunes, and party it on as A&R prepares to show NYC and Europe what they got.

Jason Gatz
Ronnie Bass
Boom Juice

Double Door
May 21st, Friday

We had Intern Stan write a few words to tell us how he feels about the duo as he wrote the piece that we ran in issue 4 of JETTISON:

Turns out that Chicago is too small for A&R. It's a bit ironic-the duo can
fit into the tightest clothes imaginable. And yet, they are taking their
brand of soul-pop to the big city, New York, New York.
The Big Apple will probably be a good fit for A&R. If nothing else, they're
sure to find some gigs during fashion week. Assuming east coasters accept
A&R's rustic, Midwestern fashion sense.
Though A&R, as a group, spent less than two years in Chicago, Alex and Rocco
still deserve a going away party. Who knows, they might like New York so
much that they will never return. So, for what might be the last A&R show in
the Windy City, the duo is pulling out all the stops.
The going away party will have guest appearances from Jason Gatz, Ronnie
Bass and Boom Juice, and all the free eye candy that comes with an A&R show.
Friday, May 21st at the Double Door is going to be the best, last A&R show
for at least a few months. Especially since it's free.

Jettison Quarterly in LA

Top: Time Travel Mart
Below: Echo Park Independent Co-Op

Jettison was in Los Angeles last week soaking up some sun and getting some work in. The highlight of our trip was taking some time to sit down with the crew at Sirocco Research Labs. Sirocco is a really cool production company based in LA doing some fun stuff with film. You'll have to check out our piece about Sirocco Research Labs in the upcoming summer issue for the details.

Jettison found some other cool stuff along the way as well. In the Echo Park neighborhood we discovered The Echo Park Independent Co-Op. EPIC is a boutique stocked with local designer wares that knocked out socks off. You can check out their stuff here, as well as shop online:

Also, right up Jettison's alley was this awesome shop (See photos). Time Travel Mart was stocked with so much exciting robot stuff, we freaked (they sell time travel supplies as well, and Black Holes are only a $2.99). On top of that, everything that the store sells goes back into their non-profit after school assistance with children. Time Travel Mart works with kids to help them with their homework and allows them to great creative with fun art projects like book binding classes.
