Paper Bag Records is turning ten. That’s old enough to be in Grade 5. Old enough to be learning exponents. Half as old as most of the hip hop references Shane and I make on a daily basis.
Anyway, to celebrate the good people at PBR are throwing a three night festivus (tickets for all three nights can be found here) and we are giving away a shit ton of stuff from their secret lair and access to the Friday night showcase. Free vinyl? Free tickets? Boom, ya pregnant.
Here’s what’s up for grabs:
2 PBR10 Friday Tickets – yeah, you know the show with The Rural Alberta Advantage, Cuff the Duke, Slim Twig and PS I Love You? Yeah, that one.
1 PBR10 T-Shirt
1 PBR10 Poster
1 PS I Love You – ‘Death Dreams’ LP
1 Elliott BROOD – ‘Days Into Years’ LP
1 Winter Gloves – ‘About A Girl’ LP
1 Slim Twig – ‘Contempt!’ LP
1 PS I Love You/Diamond Rings – ‘Leftovers’ LP
To enter, just leave your details in the comments section or email us (herohill AT gmail DOT COM). It’s that easy.
To get you excited, here’s a song from their latest signing and the Brood crushing a Feist cover.
Ha, actually, goodbye seems a little melodramatic, so let’s call it more of a “so long for now”. As you may have heard, the Ack and I are putting our beloved Herohill out to pasture. It’s a bitter-sweet decision to be sure, and I encourage you to read the Ack’s post from last week announcing(…)
Ten years. That’s how long herohill has been around. It’s hard to believe, but herohill has been a part of my life longer than my wife, any of my jobs and almost all of the friends I have. It’s a part of who I was and who I am, but I’ve come to realize it(…)
Running a music blog/website in this current timeframe means being constantly blessed & cursed by modern technology and the way it’s enabled every Jane Doe to create their own music and spray it across the internet like so much painfully earnest fertilizer. Yes, we have to deal with countless emails from MC BlazePurp and his(…)
Many moons ago, I was an obsessive jets to Brazil/Jawbreaker fan. There was something about Blake Schwarzenbach’s words that I connected with on a very deep level. In 2003, the band released their final record (the fabulous Perfecting Loneliness) and on first listen, the end results were jarring. When you considered the raw sound and(…)
You crack me up like my iPhone screen, or the Mayor of the city of my home team. haha, Rob Forb, amirite? Do we still care about him this week? You have to say, despite his being perhaps the worst example of a human being one could possibly fashion with a gigantic amount of surplus(…)
Doug Paisley’s fantastic EP, Golden Embers, is finally getting a Canadian release courtesy of the good people at Cameron House Records. I reviewed the EP over a year ago, but any chance to remind listener of Piasley’s music is welcome. Doug will share the Danforth Music Hall stage with Reuben and the Dark and Hayden(…)
