You may be aware that Record Store Day is just around the corner – and with it comes a cornucopia of special events, prizes and limited edition releases from some of the industries biggest and best!
You may also be aware of (and judging from the amount of inquiries we’ve been getting, you are) a limited edition release from a local college rock n roll band… Phish (pronounced Puh-hish.) If you’re one of these self professed “Phish heads” here’s the info straight from the fish’s gill:
On Record Store Day, Phish will release TWO SOUNDCHECKS, a Limited Edition 7-inch vinyl record that will be available exclusively at participating independently owned record stores across the country. ‘Two Soundchecks’ marks the band’s first ever live vinyl release and their first release in conjunction with Record Store Day.
This 7-inch is limited to 2,000 hand-numbered copies, and once they are gone they are gone. The A-Side is an instrumental jam culled from the soundcheck of Phish’s third show of a sold out three-night stand at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA. The B-Side is an especially exotic soundcheck from Hartford, CT in 2009, featuring Trey on Bass, and Fish on drums. This Limited Edition 7-inch was created exclusively for Record Store Day.
Pure Pop will be opening at 10AM record store day, and because we’ll only have TWENTY of those copies, we’ve decided to institute some kind of raffle to give everyone who wants a copy a fighting chance. Namely because we’re going to make people fight for them. Just kidding.
Keep your eyes on our facebook page and this blog for more info on on the raffle and for more info on our record store day exclusives.
