We’re incredibly excited to host two days of this year’s Already Dead Family Reunion! This is by far our favorite music festival in Kalamazoo and we’re hoping to see all of you there.

We’re the only physical location where you can get tickets. No service charges or anything. All ticket sales go directly to the festival, which in turn gives all money to the travelling artists. Too legit.
You can get Will Call tickets right now in the store. Weekend Passes are only $20 and Day Passes are only $8!
*Weekend and Day Passes do not include Wednesday Kick Off Parties or Sunday Live Soundtrack at the Alamo Drafthouse. Wednesday is all donation based and Sunday tickets are only available through the Alamo.

This is the 4th annual Family Reunion. By far the best lineup they’ve ever put together. We highly suggest spending some time over at Check out the bands and get familiar. Kalamazoo is lucky to have an event of this quality and we want all of you to experience the magic with us!

We’ve got another incredible show announcement for y’all! 

On Tuesday, October 7th we will be in the presence of greatness. The legendary PETER WALKER will be performing in the store! For those not familiar, here’s a quick bio:

Peter is an American Folk guitarist that recorded some highly collectible records on Vanguard in the late 60s. He studied with Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan. He is a finger picking master with a style combining the sounds of Greenwich Village, John Fahey, Eastern Raga and Spanish Flamenco. More recently, Peter has recorded new material for Tompkins Square and had several reissues through Light In The Attic. One of his more recent albums is a combination of new material and tribute pieces recorded by modern admirers Thurston Moore, Jack Rose, James Blackshaw and Steffen Basho-Junghans. 
Peter was also the musical director for Timothy Leary, organizing music for the LSD advocates “celebrations”. 

Peter Walker is a true musical treasure. This will be one of his last tours and quite possibly the only chance you will ever have to see him live. DO NOT MISS IT!!

Opening performers for the evening will include: Bob Bucko, Jr. & Axel Quinlan.

Bob Bucko, Jr. (BBJR) is a Free Improv / Experimental musician from Dubuque, IA. He plays Guitar, Saxophone and various other instruments. He has released albums on the excellent Captcha Records as well as over 35 other albums and collections on Bandcamp!

Axel Quinlan is Kalamazoo’s best Folk musician. No jokes. We will fight anyone that disagrees. Axel is an incredibly talented musician that has crafted a sound reminiscent of such greats as Woody Guthrie, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Michael Chapman and Dave Van Ronk.

Show starts at 9pm
We’re asking for a $5 suggested minimum donation. We have two different traveling artists and we want to make sure they’re treated right! 
Satellite shows are always All Ages
