Merge Records 2017: a Listening Party

Join us upstairs at the Songbyrd bar on Tuesday 11/14 for a Merge Records fall listening party, in which we celebrate indie-rock pioneer Merge Records’ 2017 releases in true Songbyrd fashion, complete with an ongoing raffle of a huge stack of luscious Merge prizes, including a TEST PRESSING of Destroyer’s latest album “Ken”. Plus other swag.

In addition to their latest release, Ian Svenonius’ new project “Introduction to Escape-Ism” (drops November 10!), we’ll be playing selections from all of Merge’s 2017 line-up: Destroyer, Hiss Golden Messenger, Shout Out Louds, The Clientele, A Giant Dog, Sneaks, Waxahatchee, Mike Krol, the Mountain Goats, Ibibio Sound Machine, Mark Eitzel and Allison Crutchfield…

Plus we’ll celebrate Merge’s heritage and throw in some vintage tracks from old-school Merge bands like Superchunk, Polvo,
Arcade Fire, The Rock*A*Teens, Magnetic Fields, Lambchop is a Band, Spoon and Archers of Loaf, because why not?

See you at the Songbyrd bar for a fun Tuesday evening Merge Records!

It’s free!
