Dave Hause (The Loved Ones), House Industries (renowned typography and design gurus) and Bantic Media (student-run artist services company out of Drexel University’s Music Industry program) have teamed up to produce the three-track solo House 7″ by Dave Hause. The 7″ features three freshly recorded songs, custom artwork by House Industries head honcho Andy Cruz, limited to 500 copies and available on a variety of colored vinyl.
In celebration of this unique collaboration, there will be a record release show at the free House Industries exhibition being held at Drexel University’s Armory in Philadelphia on May 5th 2010 where Dave Hause will perform and pre-selling the single.
For those unfamiliar with House Industries, they have designed fonts for the NFL on Fox, Tokyo’s 2016 summer games’ Olympic bid, Shell Oil, Simpsons Movie, the New York Knicks and countless others. They also designs furnishings, accessories, clothing and books. House Industries will be taking up a weeklong residency at Drexel University. Andy Cruz, co-founder of House Industries, will be at the school
working with students in the Graphic Design program on a creative problem that he’ll present as a challenge that they will complete and showcase at the final event on May 5th. Cruz will also be working with Music Industry students on packaging and promotion for the Dave Hause 7″.
The House Industries residency will conclude on May 5th when they take over the Armory for a fun evening that includes an exhibition of House Industries and Drexel student work (all night) a talk by Andy Cruz, “Building a Brand” (7pm), a performance by Dave Hause (8:30pm) and ping-pong and other table games to keep you amused. When you’re not listening to Dave Hause perform or facing off in a ping-pong match with one of your peers, professors or fellow participants, you’ll be able to walk the Armory and see the creative
work of House Industries and the students who participated in the residency on display. This event is free and open to the public
