In music/retail/good-cause news: Rudy's Barbershop and Caffe Vita recently recruited their most musically talented employees across their Seattle, Portland, New York, and Los Angeles locations to create the Buzzed Cuts Mix Tape.
Seventeen songs were picked from many barista and barber submissions, with sounds running the gamut from alt-country to metal to hip-hop.
How might you jam out to these tunes, you ask? Starting August 29, both the Vita and Rudy's online stores will be selling limited-edition T-shirts. Purchase one and get a Buzzed Cuts download code. And if feelin' good while bobbing your head and sporting your new tee isn't enough, all proceeds from the sales will benefit young musicians through the local nonprofit Music Works Northwest.
We call that a triple play, folks.
