From the news release:
Records & The Mad Platter will be
3rd annual Record Store Day on Saturday April 17th
from 10am to 10pm. The
years we have featured free live performances by top shelf talent The
Death Metal, Eli “Paperboy” Reed, Frank Fairfield &

gamut and timeline.

his novel “Psychedelic Days” as well as signing the book &
taking questions at 11am at Rhino.
Nirvana UK were the first band to sign to Island
& were part of the “Swinging London” scene of the late
60’s. Their “The Story of
Simon Simopath” record was the first concept rock record
released, predating The Who & The Pretty Things, and is considered
to be a
lost classic. Patrick might share some of his run ins with
Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Salvador Dali & other noted
that time during this instore.
Yo La Tengo
Acoustic performance at 3pm
Hoboken New Jersey’s most famous recording artists
(ok, following Frank Sinatra) have been making music for over two
decades. Their latest recording, “Popular Favorites” on
Matador Records, charted in the Billboard top 60 it’s first week out
& continues to map out new worlds in the ever evolving sound arsenal
La Tengo. This will be the bands first acoustic set in California since
the wee days of 1993, don’t miss it. Free lithograph of poster for

of OTEP will be reading
poetry from her
latest book “Caught Screaming” followed by a signing at 3pm.
Otep is one of Metaldom’s most interesting acts.
Led by lead singer Shamaya, Otep formed in Los Angeles at the begin of
millennium. Combining true metal with the poetic & volatile
lyrics/vocals of Shamaya, the group is a unique concoction that stands
a world of cookie cutter bands. The band has recently reunited with
original drummer & guitarist for a release due this Fall on Victory
Records. Shamaya will be reading poetry (her second book, “Caught
Screaming” was recently published) and signing at the Mad Platter on
Record Store Day.
