If you stopped by the shop recently, you probably heard us playing the recent works and wonderful sounds of local band Cloudeater. With their EP entitled Greatest Tragedy, Cloudeater will immediately win you over as a fan. They combine a mix of mellow vocals from lead singer, Sam Dew, with creativity in the rhythm section. Here are two tracks, Sabotage and Decade that we here at Wish feel you may enjoy. Please download and support Cloudeater on iTunes! Enjoy!

Wish x Mishka NYC x No Brakes – “Get Pitted”

Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on July 15, 2010 in Events

To say we’re excited about this project is a huge understatement. We’ve teamed up with the best name in streetwear, New York based Mishka and locally owned and operated bike shop, No Brakes to put together a few tee’s, a snapback and a dope event for this hot summer. Shown above are the two colors in the t-shirts that you can expect to see with the slogan, “ATL Get Pitted”, a nod to the gears of a fixie and the Peach State. Additionally Wish and No Brakes worked on crafting a 1 of 1 custom designed Fixed Gear bike. The tee’s and hats can be picked up at either location and the fixed gear will be on display at Wish. For those of you that want to get your hands on a bike, you can place a custom order to have one made specifically for you through No Brakes!

___  WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR THE EVENT ___

– An Alleycat Bike Race Will be taking place at 7:00PM on July 24th beginning at No Brakes Bike Shop and will end @ Wish.  It will involve multiple stops with a competition at each stop.  The challenges will range from kicking a fieldgoal to chugging a full beer.

– Tee’s and Hats (pics to come) will be available @ both No Brakes Shop and Wish for sale.
