Independent Label Fair Edinburgh, August 2012
After the success of last year’s event, we’re back for another independent label fair at Summerhall on Saturday 4th August from 12-4pm. Basically you lucky people get some proper labels and us together in one room for an afternoon to peruse our wares and then hopefully buy some records. While you do that, some excellent artists will play live for you. In between that, some people who theoretically know about music will play records. The venue is a bar in what used to be the dissection room in the veterinary college. It’s pretty cool, as you can see:
So it’s going to be a fun afternoon of music and records and a few drinks. Come along, bring the kids. It’s the day after our Gerry Loves The Festival show at Sneaky Pete’s, so maybe you’ll need a hair of the dog? It was a really great and busy afternoon, and we hope it will be again this time. We would appreciate you spreading the word, and maybe inviting yer pals to the Facebook event? If you’re not in Edinburgh, why not make a day of it at the start of the Edinburgh festival.
This time around the SMIA are organising. Here’s their blurb about it:
What better way to spend an afternoon: grab a drink, listen to some fine music and buy lots of great records from some of Scotland’s best loved record labels and bands.
We’re returning to one of the Fringe’s best venues and will be taking over the Dissection Room with stalls from Scotland’s finest independent record labels, including Chemikal Underground, Rock Action Records, Song By Toad Records, Gerry Loves Records and many more.
There’ll be live performances throughout the afternoon – line up to be announced shortly – as well as DJ sets so you that you can bop while you shop.
See you there.
