Search and Restore is having a one year anniversary party at the Bleecker Theatre and Alas No Axis is playing.

Alas No Axis is Jim Black, Skuli Sverrison, Chris Speed, and Hilmar Jensson.  Tickets are for sale through Brown Paper Tickets, not sure if it will sell out, but the opportunity to see this band doesn’t happen very often. The band’s fifth album, Houseplant, is out now and you can check out some of the tracks on Jim’s myspace.
