Bloodshot Brings Anniversary Party to Hideout

2011_8_31_bloodshot_hideout.jpg Bloodshot Records and the Hideout - like chocolate and peanut butter, Abbott and Costello and Will and Jada (for now) - are two great tastes that go great together.

The ubiquitous local record label and its partner-in-crime tavern-cum-music room have a working relationship that goes back practically since Bloodshot was founded nearly 17 years ago and some Bloodshot artists may have even served you a beer or a shot.

It makes sense that Bloodshot would want to host its upcoming anniversary party at the place it can call a second home. Which is what they'll be doing next Friday with a concert. Not only will this mark the label's 17th anniversary, but it will also celebrate the live release No One Got Hurt: Bloodshot's 15th Anniversary @ The Hideout Block Party, which they released last April for Record Store Day 2011.

The lineup for the anniversary party features The Waco Brothers (naturally a Jon Langford outfit should be involved), Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, Danny Black and Nora O'Connor, and the Deadstring Brothers in a solo conformance. That's a good lineup that should go a ways toward showing once again Bloodshot isn't just an alt-country label.
