Various Artists – Start Your Own Fucking Show Space (3xLP) – New LP

Regular price $ 34.00 $ 0.00
For nearly a decade, Death by Audio was a recording studio, an effect pedal workshop, a music venue, and a home to musicians and artists. Oliver Ackermann (A Place to Bury Strangers) found the warehouse in 2005 and along with fellow artists in Dirty on Purpose, he started hosting concerts to help pay to build out bedrooms and studios. By 2007 DBA was hosting bands almost every night.

Over 1,800 shows later, DBA announced its impending eviction with an epic final month of programming. Start Your Own Fucking Show Space tracks the last days of DBA in November 2014, a sweaty, bittersweet homecoming for many artists who began their career there.

Presented in chronological running order, Start Your Own Fucking Show Space features live recordings from 26 bands over the venue’s final month. Artists include A Place to Bury Strangers, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Future Islands, Protomartyr, Parquet Courts, Lightning Bolt, and many many more. This is not a nostalgic cry for the good old days, it’s an invitation to start anew. Start Your Own Fucking Show Space! Seriously…we need it.
