The Japanese have wacky shows and The Social Registry artists have killer shows. See, maybe it's not so unrelated now, is it? Just look at this video, laugh your ass off, hate on me for being ridiculously late to the show because you've already seen it, and read about this cool festival I have to tell you about after the fancy embedded YouTube video.
[Isn't it sad that our first (maybe last) YouTube video be of that prairie dog? -- Ed.]
Come on, it's hilarious, admit it. Besides, you should totally see the Star Wars version too -- oh shit son, so funny. Anyway, The Social Registry is having a two-day, outdoor festival August 11-12, and they'll be featuring tons of their own artists. It's kind of like a cute fund raiser for the label, but it'll never be as cute as the dramatic prairie dog. Aw. The festival itself is dirt cheap for what you're getting; $15 for one day and $25 for both. Nice! So, if you live near Brooklyn, NY, here are some essentials:
Venue: The Yard
Address: 400 Carroll Street between Bond and Nevins
Directions: F or G train to Carroll Street / N or R train to Union Street
Not only will some of the old skool Social Registry artists be performing, some new signings such as Growing will be droppin' some tunes at the fest as well. The Social Registry even has a special show up its sleeves by featuring a live performance by Ghost Exits. The festival will be the group's first live performance in three years! Cue the lineup:
Sounds like it'll be a good time. I'm off to YouTube to watch more Dramatic Prairie Dog ripoffs.
