Published Apr 23, 2015Toronto indie label Paper Bag Records is set to hit the musical milestone of putting out its hundredth release, and it has some special plans in the works to mark the occasion.
As part of this year's NXNE festival in Toronto, the label will host an event by the name of #PAPER100, which will bring together past and present Paper Bag artists for a night of live music.
Set to take place at Lee's Palace on June 18, organizers have confirmed appearances from Nils Edenloff (Rural Alberta Advantage), Woodhands, Rock Plaza Central, the Acorn, PS I Love You, Frog Eyes, Yamantaka//Sonic Titan, Laura Barrett, Cuff the Duke, Mozart's Sister, the Luyas, Grey Lands, Hey Mother Death, and members of Sam Roberts Band, with more surprises to come.
In addition to what promises to be a kick-ass show, the performances will be recorded as a compilation for future physical release.
"Paper Bag Records likes to celebrate," said label president Trevor Larocque in a statement. "Not many labels get the opportunity to reach their 100th catalogue number and I think its exciting that #PAPER100 is going to be recorded to become a physical release. It's going to be a night to remember."
