Normally, we celebrate the holidays with our annual Mint Records Ridiculously Early Xmas Party (Remember last year? Nardwuar hauled up members of Franz Ferdinand and The Cribs). This year, we've changed things up. On December 14th and December 15th, The Mint Records Just in Time for Xmas Party will take place at the Railway Club with an unprecedented number of bands performing.
We've invited The Awkward Stage, Bella, The Buttless Chaps, Carolyn Mark, The Choir Practice, Immaculate Machine, The Pack A.D., The Ramblin' Ambassadors (from Calgary), Vancougar, and Young and Sexy, and spread them over two nights at The Railway Club for you to savour. Get there early, because the first 75 paid entrants each night will receive a gift! Plus, there will be no advance tickets! Yes, to continue with tradition, we're giving out some amazing presents from our friends. Early confirmed gift-givers: CBC Radio 3, Six Cent Press, iTunes Music Store, Bonerattle Music, Zulu, Scratch, Northern Electric, Red Cat, Bongo Beat, Boompa, White Whale, Latida, Black Hen, Hockey Dad, Nardwuar, Kelp Records, Happy Bats Cinema, Black Dog Video, Punk Rock Books, Paper Bird Clothing, Not Just Another Music Shop, Foundation Restaurant, and Long and Mcquade. And if you're on Vancouver Island the weekend before, we're doing the same thing at Victoria's Logan's Pub (on Friday and Saturday December 7 and 8) and Nanaimo's The & Loan Gallery (Saturday December 8 only)!
