Moondust Social Launches w/ New Releases & T-Shirt Deal

Be proud! Support the boss sounds on the top deck label – Los Angeles’ Moondust Records – home to the ’69 sound heard around the world. Launching with 9 releases of the cream of the crop from Laurel Aitken, Impalers, Ocean 11, Delirians, Revivers, Irie Beats, Soulsteppers and Soulutionaires Moondust Records blasted off in style. 2012 shows no sign off stopping either with new releases coming, a monthly label showcase and a true blue LA pride t-shirt.

Launching on Saturday February 18 (and every 3rd Sat of the month after that) the new monthly label showcase will focus on artists releasing on the label, top bands and sound system selectors in the Los Angeles area and other bands that reflect the ideals and style of the label. That means some Oi and other styles thrown in the mix. The launch party will function not only as the first night of the monthly event but also as a release party for not 1 but 2 new releases on the label, a Slackers after-party (as label artist The Delirians are opening for them this same night) and a birthday celebration for me. What better way to party than with your close friends!

It all goes down at the Five Star Bar (269 S Main St. Los Angeles, CA 90013) with early performances by Soulutionaries (Reggae), The Right Time (Ska), The Warlords (oi), Industry (oi) and selectors Tun Tun (Shark Skin), Supa kay (Arrow SS) and special guests til 2am. Doors open at 8PM and it’s 18+. $5 cover.

What are the new releases? Soulutionaries drop a more 70’s Punky Reggae style single “Sudden Destruction” backed with “Sudden Dstruction Dub” and Slackers’ sax-man David Hillyard brings together his Rocksteady 7 collective for a wicked workout of Howlin’ Wolf’s “Evil” in 2 parts. This was recorded way before Jack White ever thought to get a Mr. Tom Jones to record his version of the same tune. Order details to come soon.

The debut Moondust Records shirt (final design may be slightly different) is also available to order now too!. Ordering a shirt gets you a ton of goodies too including a record and pass to the Launch Party. Costing just $15 plus shipping it’s a steal. The shirts will come in S-M-L-XL sizes in Blue or Black. Shirts will be available for pickup Sat Feb 18 with shipping the next week.

BE SURE TO INDICATE SIZE & COLOR via option drop-down menu.
