As a full-time environmental activist and musician, I’ve always had a real soft spot for Parks and Records — an indie label whose mission is “To support original music while helping protect the parks that we love.” With bands like Silian Rail (favorite parks: Joaquin Miller Park, Eno River State Park) and Shuteye Unison (favorite park: Humboldt Redwoods State Park) on the roster, though, you don’t necessarily have to even give a shit about the environment to find plenty to like.
Which is why you should come out to the second Parks and Records Festival on August 9 at Bottom of the Hill. The show will feature both Silian Rail and Shuteye Unison, plus another stellar Parks and Records band, B. Hamilton (favorite parks: Big Basin State Park, Joshua Tree). “It’s going to be an awesome night,” says label founder Jon Fee (who is also a member of Shuteye Unison). “We’re stoked to have these bands help us celebrate.”
Do you want to help Parks and Records celebrate, too? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Parks and Records Tickets” and your full name in the body for your chance to win a free pair of tickets!
