Slumberland Records Anniversary

As Oakland's Slumberland Records continues its 20th anniversary celebrations, it's easy for fans to wax nostalgic about the imprint's influential early catalogue. American fuzz-pop pioneers Velocity Girl, Powderburns, and Black Tambourine staked a claim on territory established by U.K. acts Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. Now Slumberland has outlived its Brit mentors and gone into overdrive with fantastic roster additions. Recent signings the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Liechtenstein, Summer Cats, and Brilliant Colors reinvigorate their dream pop and arty postpunk influences. The label's all-ages celebration offers some exclusive, out-of-retirement performances by Boyracer, Henry's Dress, and Go Sailor, while newer bands Pants Yell!, Brown Recluse, and the How will join Brilliant Colors, Australia's Summer Cats, and more for a packed evening of pop heaven.
