As our last days fly past here, emotions are running high at Other Music, and we are truly overwhelmed by the love and support we have been feeling from all of you. We are looking forward to our blowout party at Bowery Ballroom on June 28, which will be hosted by Janeane Garofalo! It will surely be a great chance to pause and celebrate with so many of you, but with the show sold out, we need something more, and we have put together a free and open pre-party on the 28th that we think will honor this moment -- one more in-store performance as we pack our boxes and prepare to move out of 15 East 4th Street, followed by a second line parade through the East Village.
The final Other Music in-store performance will be with our good friends 75 Dollar Bill, at 5:30 on the 28th. One of our very favorite NYC bands, with a beautiful new album just out, we can't think of any better artist to bring to a close our 20-year in-store series.
And then we take our music to the streets! After the in-store, 75 Dollar Bill and the incredible Matana Roberts will lead us on a march from Other Music, across 4th Street, down the Bowery, to the Bowery Ballroom on Delancey. We want to celebrate 20 years of New York City music and arts culture with all of you, and we hope that whether or not you have tickets to the Bowery show, you will join us for this free event -- let’s show NYC that music still matters! We will start gathering at Other Music at 5:30, and the parade will begin moving at 6:30, with Matana’s crew taking the lead, and 75 Dollar Bill bringing up the rear guard after their in-store performance.

Perhaps best known as one half of Tim & Eric, the comedy team behind TV shows like Tom Goes to the Mayor, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, and Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories, Tim Heidecker is also a talented musician and songwriter. His excellent debut solo album In Glendale, which sees release on Friday, May 20, is a fun and often rollicking set that pulls inspiration from greats like Randy Newman and Harry Nilsson. A few days before, Tim will be stopping by Other Music to play an intimate acoustic set and sign his new album for fans. We'll have the record available to purchase a few days early, so come on by on Tuesday evening for this special night!

This Saturday is Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record shops, vinyl, and passionate record collectors! Indeed, it's a huge day for Other Music, and all the other great stores we love. We will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. with a huge stock of exclusive RSD titles on hand, and while we can't tell you what and how many, there is a full listing of all the official releases here. From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Nate Hun (record collector and associate producer of Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock and Roll) will be DJing '60s and '70s Khmer rock 'n' roll, including music from the film's Dust-to-Digital released soundtrack, right off the original singles.
