Carpark Records, based in DC and Brooklyn, is celebrating its 16th anniversary this month with a special series of concerts, including one at DC9 on Saturday, March 7.
The first show actually will take place with nine artists at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on Friday, March 6. The DC show will feature five bands, including Lexie Mountain Boys, Greys, Chandos, Adventure and Jimmy Whispers. The final anniversary show will be held on March 19 at Saw Dive in Austin, Texas, as part of SXSW.
Carpark Records made a trailer to announce the anniversary shows, but it may give you a bit of a headache to watch it:
The first 50 guests at each of the anniversary shows will receive a free Carpark Records anniversary T-shirt by American Giant.
The folks at Carpark Records love basketball, and they are excited that they can make “Sweet 16” references to their 16th anniversary. So in addition to the concerts, Carpark Records will mark its anniversary with a Sweet 16 basketball-themed picture disc to be released on May 26.
