The Genjitsu Stargazing Society presents Strange Attraction—the Philippines’ first Cassette Store Day event, in partnership with United Cassettes and Spindle Hole Records. A small DIY gathering to promote the culture in the ways we know how. Catch us this October 13, 2018, 1-8 pm, on the penthouse level of Creekside Mall, Amorsolo St., Makati City.
Cassette Store Day is an annual worldwide event first established 2013 in the UK. Inspired by Record Store Day, CSD features the likes of music performances and exclusive tape releases happening around the globe. The goal is to celebrate the cassette as a format, along with the entire underground culture surrounding it.
This year’s Philippine leg will have performances from local musicians Memoryville, .wendil, Kino1998, joe-chu, pcastlesss, savedhistory, Ernest:Hope, and Brandon Cueto. There’ll also be brand new tapes from United Cassettes and the GSS, second-hand tapes from Magat Brothers, and tape equipment from Spindle Hole Records, along with handmade art from orngfolds, pocketbluu, Zom Kashwak, and Tonik. Drinks will be sold by Nipa Brew.
We’ll also be featuring the launch of our CSD exclusive limited edition tape, “leaving”—a GSS compilation of local music.
Tell your friends, and we hope to see you there! For more details, check out our event page at bit.ly/2xiceeV
