We don’t think you’d know it to look at him, but John Gross of local label Artifact Workshop loves to dance. Seriously, the Party Ender keeps putting out albums that seem determined, against all odds, to make Austin a veritable beat happening. Now we’ve never actually seen John Gross dance, but we like to imagine his moves to this particular song looksomething like this kid in the orange (wait for it). Artifact Workshop’s latest attempt to liven up Austin’s dancefloors is with the release of Custodian’s official debut, 7-song album. Custodian is Adreon Henry (of Single Frame fame) and Jay Bradley, and their album, Ultra-Fresh will be released this Saturday, November 21st, at Bird’s Barbershop on East 6th (of course). The party will run from 5-9, and, most importantly, FREE BEER. We don’t care how sweet your DJing is - if you want to start a dance party, throw in some free beer. Get a taste of what you’re in for below with the song “Pop-a-Lock” from Custodian, and you can pick up the limited edition special packaging there (apparently a special janitorial sponge box complete with wool scouring pads “impregnated” with soap, whatever the hell that means). And did we mention FREE BEER?
