Sept. 13th Local Book Creators

Hello everyone,

We’re excited to share our upcoming MAG Conversation topic with you:

"Of Making Many Books There is No End"

A discussion between book artists Larry Thompson and Paul Champion Demers on the strange and not-so-gentle madness of creating beautiful hand-crafted books. They’ll discuss what it is that motivates them in their art, talk about the books arts scene and attempt to describe how they can survive such an esoteric pursuit. They will also bring samples of their work and tools of their trade.

Larry Thompson is a full-time artist, teacher and writer based in Merrickville. Under the imprint Greyweathers Press, he has been creating and printing books by hand for 15 years, with eight titles including the most recent: Ecclesiastes.

Paul Champion Demers is a professional gilder and restorer who recreates medieval wooden bindings often with illuminated or decorated drawings of fantastical beasts. 

Hope you can join us at the Sidecar Café on Main Street at 7:30, Thursday, September 13th.   A small fee of $5 will be charged at the door. FREE for MAG members, Friends of MAG, season ticket holders and sponsors.

Record Store Day

Record Store Day

Record Store Day- INTERNATIONAL LISTS. 
We don’t control what gets released in which countries. Someday, every release will be available everywhere without issues (we hope!) but that day’s not today. Meanwhile, here’s a link to the Record Store Day sites in other countries. 

RSD UK: HERE 
RSD IRELAND: HERE
RSD GERMANY: HERE 
RSD BELGIUM: HERE 
RSD NETHERLANDS: HERE 
RSD FRANCE: HERE  
RSD MEXICO: HERE 
RSD ITALY: HERE
RSD SPAIN: HERE 
RSD AUSTRALIA: HERE
RSD JAPAN: HERE
 

Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica. 

This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, DJs spinning records,  and on and on. In 2008 a small list of titles was released on Record Store Day and that list has grown to include artists and labels both large and small, in every genre and price point. In 2015, 60% of the Record Store Day Official Release List came from independent labels and distributors. The list continues to include a wide range of artists, covering the diverse taste of record stores and their customers.
 

On the first Record Store Day, Metallica spent hours at Rasputin Music in San Francisco meeting their fans and now each year hundreds of artists, internationally famous and from the block, flock to record stores around the world for performances, signings, meet and greets and to fill their own shopping bags with music. In 2009, Jesse "Boots Electric" Hughes (Eagles of Death Metal) declared himself the "Record Store Day Ambassador" as a way of shouting out how important the stores were to artists and since then Joshua Homme (Eagles of Death Metal, Them Crooked Vultures, Queens of the Stone Age), Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, Jack White, Chuck D and Dave Grohl have worn the ceremonial sash. For 2016, that sash is based to Metallica, as a way to officially mark their involvement with Record Store Day and support of independent record stores. 
 

Throughout its nine years, cities across the United States, including New York City, Los Angeles, Boise, Charleston and Las Vegas have declared Record Store Day an official holiday. In 2013, Co-Founder Michael Kurtz was made a Chevalier of the Ordre Des Arts et Des Letters in France, honoring Record Store Day's contribution to the cultural and artistic life of the French people. That same year, the organizers of Record Store Day accepted the Independent Spirit Award from NARM (now the Music Biz Association). In 2015, Record Store Day was named the Marketplace Ally of the Year by A2IM, an organization of independent music labels. 

While there’s only one Record Store Day a year, the organization works with both independent and and major labels throughout the year to create contests, special releases and promotions in order to spotlight the benefits of supporting these independent, locally owned stores with music purchases throughout the year.   In 2010, Record Store Day coodinated its first Black Friday event, which gives record stores exclusive releases as part of the attempt to redirect the focus of the biggest shopping day of the year to the desirable, special things to be found at local stores. 

Record Store Day is currently managed by Michael Kurtz and Carrie Colliton, in coordination with Michael Bunnell and Eric Levin. Folks wanting to contact Record Store Day are encouraged to email us at information@recordstoreday.com
