Saturday, April 17, 2010
Y'know, we really don't ask you guys to come out for much. Oh sure, there's been four Record Fairs to date and some event here or there we were high on, but beyond these we typically leave it to the other blogs to shoulder that burden.
This time however, we've got a good cause that we'd like you to leave the comfort of your turntable for. Just for a few hours. You can do it. Be strong.
Saturday, April 17, 2010 is Record Store Day as any reader of this blog knows. It's 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.
(A reminder: this is a dry event. Please join us as you would any Fort Reno concert.)
Ok, so...back awaaayyy from the turntable now...c'mon...and join us.
If you're on Facebook, you can RSVP right here.
