Mad Men Illustrated

This is the perfect accessory to your Mad Men addiction. Each week, graphic designer Nobody’s Sweetheart illustrates a scene from Mad Men and makes them available as a wallpaper download, icon or to purchase. They’re totally retro and the perfect compliment for the perfect show.

Ra Ra San Diego

Syracuse six-piece Ra Ra Riot continued their tour with an impressive showing in support of “The Rhumb Line” last night at the Casbah. Even in a San Diego indian summer, the band’s harmonius combination of indie rock, chamber and concert band instrumentals made us feel briskly cool, huddled up in flannels under a harvest moon. Wesley Miles (lead vocalist) even voiced his fondness for local North Park restaurant The Linkery. It’s a show worth making a night out of to celebrate the changing of seasons.
