Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records’ Label Launch Party, Sunday, April 14th
…we’re gonna have us a champagne jam!
All right then. We’ve gone from fetus to newborn to crawling in under a year’s time and now BBiB Records is off and running with 4 stellar magical musical releases, all from bands we are in love with. So now we’re gonna make our little label official with this here label launch party on Sunday, April 14th at Glasslands Gallery.
And we’re doing it with a few bands on our roster, Prince Rupert’s Drops, MMOSS, and Quilt! And our good pals The Electric Mess will kick off the festivities in a most-fun freakbeat kind of way. And to put the lysergic cherry on top of the psychedelic sundae, Drippy Eye Projections will be bringing the visual stimulation.
We’ll also have all of our records for sale and we’ll have a special vinyl package deal. And you’ll be able to buy the new MMOSS & Quilt split 10″ EP, New Hampshire Freaks, a week and two days before its April 23rd release date!

Hey dudes, our superpals at Dog Gone Blog are hosting these two fucking amazing new Chilean psych bands, Follakzoid and the Holydrug Couple, at Mercury Lounge tomorrow night (Thursday, 3/21)…and gave us a pair of tickets to give to you!
Hey, tune in to BBiB on East Village Radio on Friday, Feb 1, as Psychic Ills mastermind, Tres Warren will be sitting in with me spinning trippy afternoon jammers.
We’ll certainly be talking about and playing stuff from Ills’ new One Track Mind album, out Feb 19th on Sacred Bones.
And if you’re in NY, you’d be a fool to miss the record release show next week at Bowery Ballroom. Not only is Psychic Ills playing, but White Hills and BBiB Records’ own Prince Rupert’s Drops! (And I’ll be handling the jams before the show and in between sets).
Tell ‘em Marc sent ya.
Prince Rupert’s Drops debut Run Slow is released on November 13th on BBiB Records, and we shall party in honor of that fact on Saturday, November 17th at Wild Kingdom.
Live sets from Prince Rupert’s Drops, Endless Boogie, and 1-800-BAND.

Wild Kingdom, Brooklyn, 97 S. 6th Street, Brooklyn
We are overwhelmingly psyched to announce to you today that Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records officially takes flight as we start taking pre-orders for our first release from the absolutely amazing Brooklyn band, Prince Rupert’s Drops. Their debut album Run Slow officially comes out on November 13th.
We have been toiling behind the scenes pretty much all 2012 to get the proper ducks in a row for BBiB Records and we continue to do so. And a happy toil it has been. The stuff of dreams…except with less falling and more flying :)
And we’ve been so lucky to have a lot of help and support from a lot of you. A huge thank you to any of you that answered any of our myriad questions, helped with artwork, posted about the label, came to BBiB shows or record clubs, gave advice, said kind words, inspired us, dealt with my stress or provided a smile. It’s all been greatly appreciated. For real.
And another enormous ‘thank you’ goes out to Chris Millstein who, early in the game, hipped us to Prince Rupert’s Drops. They encompass so many of the qualities that make us love music like we do. It’s indescribable the many different ways that this band kicks ass. You just need to soak it in for yourself. We’re truly giddy that we get to be the ones to unleash the magic! And of course there’s no better way to do that than via vinyl.
Come see the psych soul rock Chicago groove stomp fuckers, The Velcro Lewis Group, at Beyond Beyond is Beyond’s party at Glasslands tomorrow night.
Then tune in to East Village Radio on Friday from 2-4pm ET to hear them do a live session on Beyond Beyond is Beyond.
Read the great write-up on East Village Radio’s site.
This’ll be fun. We’re gonna install a creek in the studio.
Friday, 2-4:00pm eastern on Beyond Beyond is Beyond on East Village Radio. See ya there.
This show will kick lots of ass. And the first 20 people who email their advance ticket order confirmations, will get a free poster of this amazing show artwork done by the inimitable Justin Gabbard…or a mix tape compiled by Marc Norman. Your pick.
