We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags [Quiet Slang]
Polyvinyl Records
“I suppose we’re all chasing something that resembles salvation, something that calms our bones. Maybe this is some small slice of that. Maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s chaos in soft clothes. Maybe it's frightened. Maybe it's fearless. Maybe it's both. Or maybe it's nothing. I don’t know, but I think about this: one day I’m going to be dust. And when my soul splits, maybe this will be the thing that sneaks me through the gates. If not, well, those are the breaks. —James Alex [Quiet Slang]”

BUCKET O' BLOOD
Chicago, IL

It's time for the annual CASSETTE STORE DAY, a celebration of one of the most versatile formats for music lovers. In recent years, cassettes have gained in popularity as both collectible items and a great way for DIY bands to get their music out to a hungry audience. This year, we're teaming up with JUMP UP RECORDS, hosting a special pop-up shop to showcase their amazing, limited edition releases for the day. Chuck Wren is going to be performing a once-in-a-lifetime "TJ" set, playing some of his favorite jams right off of cassettes! We'll have some tasty beers from Ska Brewing for 21+ attendees. One lucky person will also win a one-of-a-kind Chema Skandal painted boombox!
Plus, tons of other killer CSD limited-edition releases from bands like Son of a Gun, Pet Symmetry, Pentagram, Tiamat, and lots more!

Cassette Store Day began in the United Kingdom in 2013 and quickly grew to become a global event with the participation of the United States, Japan, Germany and France. Through the efforts of CSD and the stores, labels, bands and fans involved worldwide we've helped keep what was once perceived as a dead format alive and viable in today's digital age!
