The potential awesomeness of this Saturday's party, celebrating the opening of Skylight Books 1814, just grew exponentially with the news that the bookshop has formed a band, Skylight Juice, for the event. No word on who exactly the band members are or genre of music, but it could be very, very entertaining. Some more deets on the festivities include a cake made by Kate Steffens of Straightouttachocolate rock 'n roll cakes, champagne and ribbon-cutting by Los Angeles Councilmember Tom LaBonge. There will also be an 18.14% discount at both the original and new shops. Starts outside Skylight Books 1814 at 3pm.
