Published Jul 19, 2012Believe it or not, Toronto's Paper Bag Records turns ten this year. While the label has a few upcoming releases lined up from new signees the Luyas, Moonface and Tim Hecker, the company further celebrates its status this fall with a trio of anniversary concerts that show off its roster.
Taking place September 27 to 29 at Toronto's Great Hall, the anniversary shows will bring out 12 Paper Bag outfits. The first night wrangles together folksters Elliott Brood and friends, with openers including Born Ruffians, Woodhands and the Acorn. The second night is headlined by the Rural Alberta Advantage, with opening sets from Cuff the Duke, PS I Love You and Slim Twig.
The third night, meanwhile, will be steered by a super secret guest. Though this is purely speculative, we should point out that the label once issued LPs by Cancon greats like Broken Social Scene, Stars and Tokyo Police Club, among others. We can, however, confirm that dormant B.C. dance rock troupe You Say Party are resurrecting themselves for the show, and will be joined by Young Galaxy and the Luyas.
Tickets to the concerts are available now, with a single night costing $25 and a three-day pass running for $60. You can purchase tickets over here, or in person at Rotate This and Soundscapes.
