Sponsored by Studio 52. A community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.
Shortly after celebrating their eighth anniversary and plotting out a new facility, The Record Co. has announced their first ever festival, a one-day event of Boston music at The Sinclair.
Aptly named TRC Fest, the all-ages May 2 show will be hosted by Oompa and feature performances from Ali McGuirk (pictured), Anjimile, Brandie Blaze, Black Bear Extraordinaire, Circus Trees, Cliff Notez, DJ Why Sham, Dzidzor Azaglo, Louie Bello, Nancia, Pony Snot, select members of Ripe, Saraswathi Jones, and Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys.
The purpose of the event is twofold, aiming to both showcase “emerging and legacy local talent” and raise money for the The Record Co.’s new music hub, currently due to open in 2020: “TRC Fest is a benefit to make more space for music makers in Boston… Every ticket raises awareness (and money!) to help The Record Co. build a new, world-class music workspace for Boston’s incredible community of musicians.”
According to a March Facebook post from the company, the new space “will feature 4 recording studios (the largest of which will double as a small-format community event space), 15 fully backlined rehearsal rooms, and a community meeting room.”
