Celebrate Record Store Day Everyday!
on March 8,2011 by jared

(But especially Saturday, April 16th...)

This Saturday, the fifth annual Record Store Day hits stores with plenty of sales to keep music fans busy. But there's more to the festivities than just 40%-off stickers and rare vinyl.

Celebrated the third Saturday in April, Record Store Day takes over more than 700 independently owned music stores internationally. In addition to sales and specially-released merchandise, stores offer special programming, from live performances to cook-outs to parades. The event was founded in 2007 to celebrate the art of music.

Locally, several stores are officially participating in the celebration, including Into the Music, Music Trader, Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store, War On Music, Red River Book Store, Planet of Sound, and Argy's Collectibles offer their own events. Head to Into the Music, Music Trader and the Winnipeg Folk Festival music store to catch sets by homegrown talent like Vampires, This Hisses, Scott Nolan, Rambling Dan Frechette, The Telepathic Butterflies, and more while perusing blowout sales.

After the business day ends, the party moves to The Lo Pub where participating stores come together for a night of music courtesy of DJ Hunnicutt and Triunfo de Gato, and the second edition of live music trivia game show.

South by Southwest Welcomes 10 Showcasing Manitoba Acts

An impressive group of Manitoba musicians are getting a head start on the spring thaw this month with a trip to Texas. But it’s not all sunburns and barbeque for the 10 local acts making their way south; they’ll be showcasing and networking at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin. The prestigious festival will put some of Manitoba’s most exciting and innovative acts on stage in front of powerful international music industry professionals.

Now in its 23rd year, SXSW, which runs March 15-20, is one of the world’s biggest music festivals and conferences, featuring over 1300 acts from across the globe performing in every imaginable genre. Manitoba acts will have the opportunity to perform for some of the industry's top names as well as rabid audiences in several Austin venues.

For the first time, Manitoba Music will host a showcase of top talent from the keystone province at SXSW on March 17 at The Parish Underground. The line-up features breakout soul/pop duo Imaginary Cities, indie pop/rock outfits The Liptonians, Royal Canoe, The Details, and Hope Atlantic, and hip-hop act The Lytics, This show is the latest in Manitoba Music’s series of successful market development events highlighting homegrown talent, including three recent industry showcases in Toronto. Other Manitoba acts hitting the stage at SXSW include acclaimed singer/songwriter Christine Fellows, indie pop/rockers Les Jupes and Boats, and noisecore act KEN Mode. Rock band Domenica and singer/songwriter Scott Nolan will also be performing in Austin.

For the 13th year, Manitoba Music and MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC join forces to present the hottest party at SXSW on March 18 at the Radisson Town Lake. The exclusive event brings influential industry players together with the Manitoba delegation to network and further develop crucial working relationships.

Manitoba artists and industry professionals were able to access financial support for their showcases at SXSW through the Market Access Program, a program jointly funded by Manitoba Music and Manitoba Film & Music.
