TKO Records' 10th Anniversary Weekender Blowout
Huntington Beach punk label TKO celebrates its 10th year of existence July 20 through 22 with three shows in three different venues. Friday night's gig goes down at Alex's Bar (21+) in Long Beach; Saturday's happens at Vault 350 (all ages) in Long Beach; and Sunday's takes place at the Airliner (18+) in LA. Heavyweights such as Antiseen, Poison Idea, Smut Peddlers, Smogtown and many others will be igniting mosh pits, increasing adrenalin levels and inducing sweat stains during the TKO bash. Make sure you're well-rested for this.
In other TKO news, the company will open a retail record shop in Fountain Valley (18948 Brookhurst St.). Label boss Mark Rainey expects to launch the store in August. We wish him all the best in this horrendous music-retail climate.
