Record Store Day Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is International Record Store Day! Our new neighbor Phonopolis will be hosting a tUnE-YarDs listening party starting at 5pm WITH a keg of beer provided by record label 4AD. In support of our friends and in solidarity with small, arts related businesses across the nation, we will be giving 15% off all music books. Here are some choice picks:

You should really pick up a copy of this book, especially with the 10th anniversary concert sneaking up. Michael Azerrad's Our Band Could Be Your Life takes us through '81-'91 indie rock America, chronicling stories of bands that , at the time were pretty off the radar, but are now mostly legendary.

 Love Saves The Day is Tim Lawrence's telling of dance music beginnings. I haven't read this one but I loved Tim's biography Arthur Russell biography: Hold Onto Your Dreams.

Signed up for Electro Acoustics at Concordia this fall? I am pretty sure this is your bible or something...

And finally, Alex Ross' two music-scape-epics The Rest Is Noise and  Listen To This are on sale. Mahler and Wagner were basically the first indie rockers. Music books galore, on-sale tomorrow only!!
