When you can pick and choose the songs you want to buy online, it’s rare enough to have one artist’s whole catalogue, let alone that of an entire record label. This weekend in Carroll Gardens, though, the Social Registry — the Greenpoint-based indie label that brought us Blood on the Wall and TK Webb — will bring together almost all of its acts to celebrate four successful years of business.
“We’ve always talked about doing something like this,” said Social Registry President Joe Gaer. “But now we have new acts on the label and it’s time to debut them to everyone. It’s seems like the perfect time.”
During the two-day festival, old standbys like Gang Gang Dance will take the stage alongside their newest label mates, Douglas Armour and Sian Alice Group, who are traveling from Los Angeles and London respectively.
It’s unusual for this many bands to come together in support of their label, but with this set there’s a strong comradery. “It’s a pretty tight-knit group,” explained Social Registry chanteuse Samara Lubelski (pictured). “This is the continuation of a long history.”
The Social Registry Summer Festival will take place at 1 pm on both Aug. 11 and Aug. 12 at the Yard (400 Carroll St., between Bond and Nevins streets in Carroll Gardens). Tickets are $15 per day, or $25 for both. For information, visit www.socialregistry.c....
