Almost two years ago, my sister and her boyfriend started an online radio station called Hollow Earth, featuring “found sound, field recordings, story-telling (sometimes paranormal), dream-collecting, radio plays, live house shows and local in-home performances.” In addition to creating an eccentric online station for people to listen to from the comfort of their homes, they have held some pretty cool events in Seattle to foster a sense of community (Magma Fest) and to promote local musicians, whilst raising money to fund programming (shameless sister promotion blah blah blah).
On December 6th at Healthy Times Fun Club in Seattle, Hollow Earth is hosting yet another rad event—their First Annual Local Label Record Sale and DIY Craft Fair. Over 20 local labels will set up booths to sell their wares, and bands will play for the entirety of the event. Sub Pop and our much-loved label pal Hardly Art will share a table along with employee Lacey Swain’s own Haunted Horse Records. Come! Listen to music! Buy local!
*Record sale is from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and turns into an evening show thereafter, with a $5 suggested donation at the door.
