Sunday’s Bonnaroo Updates from Vinyl Records field reporter (Mixtur)Reed Turchi
TurchiTweet5.0 (3:06am): “So far, Girl Talk and MGMT win for most obnoxious fans. I am both impressed and alarmed. Let’s put on more sparkles.”
TurchiTweet5.2 (5:16am): “MGMT may have a larger following, but in my mind Hockey won best performance for an indie electro pop band.”
TurchiTweet5.4 (3:45pm): “Rebirth Brass Band makes an unscheduled appearance and I get there just in time to see it end. Missed the best show here!”
TurchiTweet5.6 (4:01pm): “Brett holding it down right now, then Andrew Bird and Band of Horses.”
TurchiTweet5.8 (8:28m): “Comedy tent hipsters have ironic sex. Like how’s this? Whatever.”
TurchiTweet6.0 (9:28pm): “Snopp Dogg: ‘What’s my mothafuckin name? Snoop Dogg Snoop Dogg, are you ready for Phish?!’ How many times do you think he’s said that?”
Relevant Grateful Dead quote of the day:
“Almost aflame still you don’t feel the heat, takes all you got just to stay on the beat.”
We are fast approaching a very exciting time for Vinyl Records UNC. This fall we’re looking for two bands/artists to be voted on by YOU, the student population, at our September Showdown to be signed to our totally student-run record label. Five bands or artists will be presented and the two groups receiving the most votes will be offered a record deal. Selected bands will receive all of the positive attention you would expect from a record label, and its all FREE.
Applications for bands interested in auditioning for the September Showcase are now available for download here and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be turned in by midnight, September 5th either via email, under the door in Hill Hall room 225, or by visiting our table in the Pit between 10am and 2pm.
