  • Recession Special

    No Coast is having a 25% off sale this weekend, come by and be stoked. We're open Friday 1-7, Saturday 12-7, Sunday 12-6. Will abstaining from buying corporate trash for one single day a year change the system? Dunno. Will supporting your favorite local and independent artists every day of the year change it? Maybe...let's find out!

  • New Items!

    We got some new stuff in, with lots more on its way. Here's some of our favorites.

    Bongout is a publisher and silk-screen studio in Berlin.  They publish Mollusk, a magazine of contemporary art and design.  We just got in Ghana Movie Posters and The Last 10 Shots.  The first is from an exhibit of promotional oil paintings in Ghana.  The second displays the last group of polaroids taken by a diverse group of artists.  Also from Bongout is an amazing limited edition collaborative screen-print book by Bongout artists and Seripop from Montreal.  Sold out on the Bongout web store but you can get it from us!

    Also posters from Danimal are here!  These will look great on your bedroom wall.

    Plus new titles from Green Lantern Press, Dewayne Slightweight, Al Burian, Eye Rocket Books, and more!

  • YOU GUYS ROCK

    The opening last week saw some beautiful weather, beautiful people, beautiful performances, and pie. This summer has been wild trying to get things started, so there are many many thanks due to everyone that came to support, and especially to Future Islands, Lexie Mountain Boys, Radical Passenger, and These Are Powers for performing. Your presence is more than worth the work it took to get this project off the ground. Y'all come back soon now. We're open W-F 1-7, Sat. 12-7 ans Sun. 12-6. Our next event is a new one: a monthly Stitch & Bitch on Thursday the 23rd, from 6-9. Hope to see you there...
