Stones Throw is proud to announce the production of an independent documentary “Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton (This Is Stones Throw Records)” by filmmaker, Jeff Broadway of Gatling Pictures. Drawing on live concert footage, never-before-seen archival material and in-depth interviews “Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton” will follow label founder and DJ/Producer, Peanut Butter Wolf and explore the various left-of-center artists, history, culture and global following.

Yes, I can’t remember the last time I heard someone use the word “BLING” (aside from those wannabe 11 year old rappers at the Cambridge Mall) but forget the aliens – forget finding another sustainable planet – the next space mission should be to this new planet covered in diamonds.

Since 2009, The Bold Italic has been celebrating local creativity in San Francisco. Between their online magazine, print publications, events, and pop-up shop, The Bold Italic focuses on covering and collaborating with the artists, writers, local businesses, and organizations who make them excited to be living in the Bay Area. The idea is to showcase what they’re excited about in San Francisco outside their borders and to show people back home what like-minded locals are enthusiastic about.
