  • BSI

    Couple o' extra details on that saturday show at Comet: It's also a CD release for Blue Sausage Infant... Pilesar and Violet are guesting on the BSI set. Also on the bill is a duet from LA of Emily Hay (of Motor Totemist Guild fame) and Motoko Honda. Strotter Inst. does incredible work with multiple-turntable installations. A must-see. I have spoken.

  • The Vinyl District

    Saturday, April 17, 2010 is Record Store Day—a day set aside to promote the history and longevity of DC's—and the nation's—indie record stores.

    In conjunction with Record Store Day this year, Olivia Mancini, Paul Michel, Tone, and New Rock Church of Fire are playing in support of another DC landmark, the outdoor summer concert institution, Fort Reno.

    The event runs from 8:00PM - 10:30PM at St. Stephen's Church which is located at 1525 Newton Street, NW, in DC.

    Tickets are just $10.00 with all proceeds going toward the overhead for Fort Reno's Summer 2010 Season.

    Those of you who patronize one of our local independent record stores on Record Store Day will receive half off the price of admission with the presentation of a store receipt dated Saturday, April 17, 2010.
