All of us here at Touch and Go are pleased to announce the release of the first in our web series of mini-videos about our 25th anniversary birthday bash held last September at the Hideout here in Chicago. Now, for all of you who couldn't make the trek, here's a way (other than all those blurry youtube videos) to check out Big Black's stellar set, David Yow in all his writhing glory, or any of the 29 other bands that rocked thousands of socks off in one glorious weekend.
The series kicks off on our website this Monday, January 22 with an overview of the block party and how it came to happen. Then, starting January 29, we'll begin posting band-specific clips from every set of the weekend. We don't want to give too much away about the first few posts, but you can expect to see a little old-school, some more recent faves, and even one from a band that's so new they haven't released a record on Touch and Go yet. In the weeks and months to come, check back every Monday for a new video from a different act blending live performance and interview footage in commemoration of 25 years of Touch and Go
