Teatotaller event: Facebook Cover Photo of West High St. Billboard

What a wonderful surge of support and excitement that has surrounded our billboard on West High St!

This is what makes Somersworth such a vibrant and expressive community – we couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.

A lot of folks have asked if they can use the image as their Facebook Cover photo – to which we say – “Yes!”

Teatotaller event: BRING US YO JAMS: Independent Music CD Drive

We’ve grown tired of major record labels dominating our audio experience in public spaces.

Why is so much good music going un-heard?

Teatotaller is ready to change that! We’re going Independent!

For the Summer (or really, forever?), Teatotaller is looking for YOUR music to play in OUR spot!

Send us your CDs! Music can be original or covers, but must be all performed and recorded by independent musicians.

If we like what we hear, we’re going to play it regularly in our shop, promote you/your band, and send you some tea!

If you bring in a CD (whether it’s your music, your friend’s, or your grandmas), we’ll give you a 20% discount on your entire bill!

Otherwise, please mail your CD (with any posters/cover art/info about you/chewed gum) to:

Teatotaller
69 High St.
Somersworth NH

 

*****No mp3s or cassettes – this is a truly late 1990’s undertaking*****
