Yep Roc Records 15th Anniversary Concert In Carrboro, NC October 11-13


Recommended Posts

Even though there's a good percentage of artists performing at Hopscotch in Raleigh in September that I'd like to see, this line up is much more up my musical alley.


Here's the press release:

YR15: Yep Roc Records Celebrates 15th Anniversary with 3 Nights of Music – October 11th-13th, 2012

Yep Roc Records, the artist-driven label that proudly refuses to be labeled, will celebrate its 15th anniversary with Yep Roc 15, a three-night concert blowout October 11, 12 and 13, at the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC, featuring once-in-a-lifetime performances, collaborations, and recording sessions by current and past Yep Roc artists.

The stellar initial Yep Roc 15 line-up includes Nick Lowe, Robyn Hitchcock, Fountains of Wayne, Eleni Mandell, John Doe, The Sadies and many more with additional artists to be announced soon. John Wesley Harding will serve as Master of Ceremonies.

Yep Roc 15 tickets will go on sale Friday, May 18th at 10am EST. More information and tickets will be available at www.yr15.com.

In addition to 3 nights of live music, fans who purchase the YR15 “Premiere Fan Bundle” package, which will be limited to 100 sold, will also have exclusive access to:

A kick-off party on Wednesday, October 10, at Local 506, featuring Los Straitjackets, The Fleshtones, Southern Culture On The Skids, and Countdown Quartet.

Every month leading up to YR15, the label will make one previously unreleased track from its archive available for free.

Based in Haw River, NC, Yep Roc Records was founded in 1997 by Tor Hansen and Glenn Dicker. Known for a genre-busting catalogue, Yep Roc has released over 300 albums, singles, videos and boxed sets to date. “If I’ve got my Yep Roc t-shirt on, I’m not really a part of one scene,” says Hansen. “I accept that, in fact I love it.”
