Tour Dates: Matador Turns 21

Started out of a New York City apartment in 1989 by by Chris Lombardi, Matador Records has earned a reputation as one of the most influential indie labels of the last few decades releasing albums from the likes of Pavement, Yo La Tengo, Liz Phair, Cat Power, Belle & Sebastian, The New Pornographers and Sonic Youth. Last week, the label announced that it will be celebrating its 21st anniversary in style with a weekend festival in Las Vegas that they’re dubbing the Lost Weekend. While more specifics about the event are forthcoming, we do know that it will take place from October 1-3 and will be presented by Goldenvoice and FYF Fest.

If you can’t make it to Vegas to celebrate with the Matador folks, then maybe you’ll be able to hit one of these recently announced tours…

Finally, a couple of weeks back during the Yankees/Red Sox Opening Night game it was announced that two of Boston’s rock institutions – Aerosmith and the J. Geils Band: who will reunite for a rare one-off performance – would be teaming up to play a special concert at Fenway Park this summer. Dubbed the Double Play the two classic rock acts will take the stage at the historic ballpark on located on Yawkey Way on the evening of August 14.
