As if it hasn't been made abundantly clear all week, Sockets Records is throwing its 5-Year Anniversary Party tonight at The Black Cat with label stalwarts The Cornel West Theory, HUME, Imperial China, Buildings, and Big Gold Belt. We thank them all for participating here this week.
Label founder Sean Peoples has some parting thoughts and your Parting Shots this week:
In my 5 years running Sockets Records I learned a lot about releasing music. But more importantly, I made a bunch of new friends and can help highlight new creativity that deserves to be heard. The Sockets showcase tonight will be eclectic and I wouldn't have it any other way. Big thanks to Jon at TVD for helping put this together and stay tuned for a lot more music in 2010!
