After a year and a half of planning, He Just Wrote Them Like That – A Tribute To George Harrison is now out. It’s available from our bandcamp for a donation-based download, with all proceeds going to benefit Planned Parenthood. We’re honored and humbled to say that the release party we had at The Avenue Cafe on 2/25 (George’s birthday!) was able to raise over $1000 to Planned Parenthood. This is truly a highlight of our work as a label and we can’t thank the attendees and supporters enough. So check out the compilation, featuring brand new recordings of George Harrison songs by Jason Alarm, Carm, The Plurals, Calliope, The Hunky Newcomers, Johnny Unicorn, The Stick Arounds, Drinking Mercury, Scary Women, Mad Moon, Dim, and more! 21 different artists!
Check out the playlist below for some highlights from the release party. Thanks so much to the Avenue Cafe for being such great supporters of GTG Records and all that we do.
Check it out! Shows at the Avenue, Mac’s, Green Door, house shows galore, Record Store Day, etc etc! Spring!
First off, check out this new video for “Facebook” by The Plurals! Shot on tour last summer, coming out now in anticipation of a new tour. Also, we discovered when we tried to advertise this video on the, uh, real facebook that you cannot promote non-official products that have the word “Facebook” in them. Well aren’t we just little rebels. But anyway, that’s the video up there. This is a link to it too, because why not?
