Regina Spektor Set for Record Store Day Performance
Says Other Music co-owner, Josh Madell, "Record shops are all about creating a place for artists to connect with their fans, and in the most literal sense Other Music and Record Store Day 2011 are creating a great forum for Regina Spektor to connect with the great New York fans who have supported her from the start."
This year, Other Music, with Spektor's help, plans to say thank you to those fans by giving the first 100 customers who buy Spektor's limited RSD release, Four From Far, an extra-special bonus with their vinyl: a ticket to see Regina play an intimate solo show at the store that afternoon, as she records her next Record Store Day release.
Four From Far (Warner Bros) will contain the digital exclusive "Riot Gear", "The Sword & the Pen" and "Time Is All Around" from far Special Edition, and "Eet" from Live in London, now compiled together on light blue vinyl
Live In London is Regina's brand new live concert film, which will screen at the Walter-Reade Theatre in Lincoln Center on the same night, as part of the Record Store Day celebration.
Also screening at the Walter-Reade is the official film of Record Store Day 2011, Jeanie Finlay's celebrated film, SOUND IT OUT-- a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England.
Regina Spektor has always been an ardent supporter of indie record stores. In fact, in recent years, she has graced the now-annual event, Record Store Day, the big day out in celebration and support of independent music retailers, with in-store appearances, special product, and kind, public words for the event. This year, Spektor goes all out with a number of hearty nods to the indies, sending out love in all formats…
The artist says, "I'm very glad to take part in Record Store Day again. It's so important to have a local place where you can go and discover new and older music. It's great to be surrounded by knowledgeable people who can guide you and help you through your discoveries; people who can put things into a context, care about the history of recorded music, and want to share their experience. Go and meet them!"
