We're really excited to announce that we will be working with Brooklyn's Nude Beach on their next album, which will be out in the fall. We have been friends and fans of Nude Beach since the beginning and it seemed like it was only a matter of time before we would start working together as they seem to always be playing with our bands and Ryan Naideau, the band's drummer, has already played on numerous Don Giovanni releases in his former band Dustheads

Keep checking back for more information on the record, and in the meantime you can catch the band on tour:

4/23 Columbus, OH - Kobo w/ Tweens
4/24 Memphis, TN - Murphy's

"How Do You Like What You Have." - Artist book by Lauren Denitzio out April 26th

Written by Don Giovanni on 04/02/2014 10:53am


We're really excited to announce that we are going to be releasing a collection of artwork by Lauren Denitzio entitled How Do You Like What You Have. The 40-page booklet is professionally printed on high quality paper. 

People familiar with Don Giovanni Records are probably already familiar with both Lauren Denitzio and their artwork. In addition to playing guitar and singing in The Measure (SA) and Worriers, Lauren also did all of the artwork for those bands and a number of other bands on and off Don Giovanni.

The first printing of the booklets will include a signed and numbered edition limited to 75 for mail order only, as well as a non-signed and numbered edition that will be available through Lauren at Worriers shows and our website.

Pre-orders for both editions will go up Friday on our website.

In addition, Lauren will first have copies available at Brooklyn Zine Fest at the For The Birds table on April 26th, and again the following night April 27th at a release party for the book with performances by Shellshag, Chumped, and Worriers.

Here are a few sample pages:
