Kelp 20 parties set for Toronto & Ottawa! /April 16, 2014
It’s hard to believe we now have an intern in our office that is as old as Kelp is. We’ve grown from our meagre beginnings hawking cassettes in Fredericton, NB into a company that handles management, label, and other services for artists. Though a lot of hair has been lost along the way, our enthusiasm for music has not, and we feel lucky to be able to continue to do what we do. So thanks for your support over the years!
We’re ready to celebrate this spring with 20th anniversary parties in Toronto (May 29) & Ottawa (May 31) and a few fun reissues too, the first of which is a double-vinyl edition of The Acorn’s classic Kelp releases The Pink Ghosts and Blankets EP, housed together in a gatefold jacket on two beautiful slabs of pink-marbled & white vinyl! You can preorder the records now here.
As for the parties, they are going to be a blast….both shows will feature the live return of The Acorn (full band) as well as The Kelp Revue, a circus-like stage full of players and instruments backed by The Flaps and featuring performances by Jim Bryson, Andrew Vincent, Evening Hymns, Chris Page, Andy Swan, Rhume, Flecton Big Sky and more TBA! We hit the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto on May 29th and Barrymore’s Music Hall (!) in Ottawa on May 31st. All of the info is sitting over at kelprecords.com/kelp2o, so scoop up tickets, keep an eye on #kelp20, and stay tuned for more fun announcements in the coming weeks!events, news
