We are not usually in the business of putting on events outside of the store, but this was too good to pass up. We are giddy with excitement to be a part of this super awesome event and it is not to be missed. Mark you calendars. Saturday September 8th, the founders of FOUND magazine are headed back to Ottawa for their 10th anniversary tour.
Road warriors Davy and Peter Rothbart are hurtling their way on FOUND Magazine’s 10th Anniversary Tour, which celebrates the release of Davy’s book of personal essays, My Heart is an Idiot, Peter’s new album, and a brand-new issue of FOUND.
The Rothbart Brothers are hopping back in the tour van, FOUND treasures in tow, for an epic romp across North America with stops in 75 cities – including a stop on Saturday, September 8th in Ottawa at Pressed (750 Gladstone Avenue) at 7:00 p.m. Their last visit to Ottawa sold out quickly, so arrive early to guarantee yourself a spot!
FOUND Magazine is a collection of the greatest lost, tossed, and forgotten items: love letters, birthday cards, kids' homework, to-do lists, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, telephone bills, doodles - anything that gives a glimpse into someone else's life. Whether they are found on city sidewalks, stuck in chain-link fences, tucked into the pockets of secondhand clothing or library books, or on the grass in a school yard, these items give readers an uncensored, poignant, and often hilarious peek into other people's lives.

We are sure this event will have the same effect on you as the art show had on the above 8 year old.
Catch this rowdy reading-and-music show Saturday, September 8th at 7:00 pm at Pressed for 5$.
Not to be missed, friends.
