Thrill Jockey Records Mark 20 Years With London Show
Thrill Jockey Records will mark their 20th anniversary with a show at the Lexington in London on November 9.
Labelmates Arbouretum, Radian, Alexander Tucker and kandodo will perform to mark two decades since Bettina Richards launched the diverse US-based marque in 1992.
Since then it’s released work from acts including Tortoise, Boredoms, the Sea & Cake, Sidi Toure, Fred Anderson, Wooden Shjips, the Fiery Furnaces, Barn Owl, Tom Verlaine, David Byrne, Oval, Trans Am, High Places, Future Islands, Liturgy, Freakwater and many others.
Thrill Jockey say: “a series of 20th anniversary shows will be held, showcasing some of the label’s established and up-and-coming acts.
“Events kicked off last week with shows in New York and Baltimore, including show-stopping headline sets from Future Islands and Tortoise. Further planned events will be held in LA, Chicago, San Francisco, Portland and London later this year.”
Baltimore psych-rockers Arbouretum will premiere material from fourth album Coming Out of the Fog, due out in January. The show also marks the first London appearance of kandodo, Heads guitarist Simon Price’s solo project.
Thrill Jockey promise an “intimate affair, and one to remember” at the Lexington. Limited-edition anniversary merchandise will be on sale.
Tickets cost £10 and are available here.
