DON GIOVANNI RECORDS - Happy Tenth Anniversary (Two Days at Music Hall of Williamsburg) + more

Don Giovanni Records will celebrate their tenth anniversary with a two evening affair of the heart at Music Hall of Williamsburg this February 8th and 9th, 2013.  Both nights will feature five bands from the DG roster (both new and old) with the very affordable cover charge of $13/15 (sliding scale).  

As well as having the label anniversary to celebrate, New Brunswick, PA punkers' Stormshadow (one of the main groups that actually inspired the formation of the DG label) will be reuniting for the show on the 9th which will feature the re-release of their LP "Set On Destroy".  On Thursday night at Death By Audio, the label will also sponsor its annual showcase which is set to feature even more of the label's roster including: California X (video below), House Boat, Brick Mower, and Plastic Cross; headlining the bill will be Nuclear Santa Claust, who are releasing their debut "Order Of The New Age".

"New Brunswick, New Jersey label, Don Giovanni Records, is pleased to announce they have fulfilled and exceeded their label's aspirations. This winter the label will reissue Stormshadow's record, "Set On Destroy". The band defined everything label founder, Joe Steinhardt, loves about his hometown's scene. They were original, political, tight musicians & made fantastic art. The band, however, broke up & no one outside of New Brunswick knew who the band was, so Don Giovanni Records was started to solely re-issue this local classic. Along the way the label has released a handful of bands that have defined the New Brunswick scene, like Screaming Females & other bands across the country, like Waxhatchee, who take a stand for the weird-os, failures & losers in all of us. Come celebrate this winter at Music Hall of Williamsburg, with a stacked lineup showcasing the labels roster, & most importantly see Stormshadow reunite."
