The Isotope's New Favorite Band
Play Live Thursday, September 1st

No doubt you already know about the Isotope's infatuation with the Osaka based band PINE*AM. You've no doubt already heard their quirky DEVO-esque bubblegum pop emanating from the store's sound-system on several occasions, or perhaps you've already picked up a copy of their awesome "Pull The Rabbit Ears" CD which perpetually lurks behind the shop's counter, or perhaps you joined us in checking the band out live when they were last in the city, or perhaps you've just heard members of the Isotope staff extolling the virtues of PINE*AM's groove-laden vintage synth bleeps, euphoric three part harmonies, catchy guitar hooks and robotic drum loops.

And what could be a better way to celebrate the Isotope's love for the band than having them in for live concert?

While internationally touring bands playing at your local comic shop might not be the standard, let us invite you to come see PINE*AM playing live on the Isotope's stage this Thursday night! And witness the band playing some of our favorite songs like Gymnopedie 0.1, Far Star Lover, Hidden A, and Space Tug [departure from universe2].

PINE*AM @ the Isotope
Thursday, September 1st
On stage at 9pm

(also be sure to catch PINE*AM this Wednesday Night @ The Rickshaw Stop)
