Exciting things are starting to happen at Dumb Records now that the store has acquired more space and opened up. On Thursday, March 24th we have a real treat coming, and that is the co-founder of Lookout Records, Larry Livermore. Mr. Livermore will be stopping by for the evening in support of his new book “How To Ru(i)n A Record Label” which talks about the story of how Lookout Records formed. For those of you unfamiliar, Lookout Records was responsible for releasing records from bands Green Day, Operation Ivy, as well as many others. From the event description:
Larry Livermore was the co-founder of Lookout Records, the editor and publisher of Lookout magazine, and a longtime columnist for Maximum Rocknroll and Punk Planet. A seminal figure in the Bay Area scene and in punk in general, Livermore walked away from the label at the height of its popularity.
Larry will read from his new book, How To Ru(i)n A Record Label: The Story of Lookout Records (released by Don Giovanni Records). He will probably tumble through his treasure chest of tales and maybe do some Q and A too. Don’t miss it.
More information on the book can be found right here. The event will be held inside Dumb Records at 7:00 pm on March 24th. It is also free, and Dumb Records will be event offering 20% off everything in store starting at 6:00 pm to get you out to this! Find a facebook event for this one right here.
