BARSUK RECORDS 15TH ANNIVERSARY
This year marks Barsuk's fifteenth anniversary, and we're celebrating!
After kicking things off in early September with an incredible day of Barsuk artists at Bumbershoot, we'll be picking up again November 7-10 with a ton of Barsuk artists past and present for four once-in-a-lifetime shows in some of our favorite Seattle venues: Showbox at the Market, Neptune Theatre, Neumos and Barboza, and The Tractor Tavern.
We're honored that so many members of Barsuk's little roster family have signed on for these shows — Bumbershoot is going to be great, and we're giddily and impatiently waiting to announce the November lineup at the end of this month... All we can say now is that these four shows are going to be unforgettable nights of music, packed with musical bliss from amazing headliners, artists from throughout our history, and some fun surprises...
Tickets for Bumbershoot are on sale now at bumbershoot.strangertickets.com. Tickets for individual November anniversary shows will go on sale toward the end of June, but a very limited number of early-bird wristbands with special perks will go on sale next week. Read on for details...
Only 50 early-bird wristbands will be sold online (via www.barsuk.com/xv/wristbands; must be 21+ to purchase) starting on Tuesday June 18 at 12 pm PST.
Wristbands will give holders guaranteed access to all four November shows, and come with a complete set of signed & numbered Barsuk anniversary show screenprints by renowned poster designer Jason Munn, plus a free round-trip car ride to each venue courtesy of Uber. Also, 100% of Barsuk's net proceeds from wristband sales and from all other anniversary ticket sales will be donated to the wonderful local non-profit cancer support organization Gilda's Club Seattle.
Bumbershoot: On Sunday, September 1, the long-standing Seattle arts festival will feature "15 Years of Barsuk Records," a conversation with label co-founder Josh Rosenfeld and a collection of some of the more verbose members of the Barsuk family as part of Bumbershoot's Words & Ideas programming, followed by an all-day music lineup featuring performances by Death Cab for Cutie (performing their 2003 masterpiece Transatlanticism in its entirety), Ra Ra Riot, Mates of State, David Bazan, and Ramona Falls.
November shows: As tickets become available, we'll list links and information here.
