LOWER EAST SIDE—When Bblessing closed, we were a little worried that the LES had lost its sad-eyed goth torchbearer, but Convent seems more that happy to take up the title. On Wednesday night, they're holding a sale called "The Death of Summer" with pieces from Rick Owens, Skingraft, the Twentyten, and Erre Siete. This is no mere in-store shopping occasion, though: The event doubles as the album release party for Codecracker, it's got an open bar running from 8pm to 10pm, and it takes place at Fat Baby (112 Rivington Street).
