Xtra Mile Recordings presents: Rock Against The Riots at The Borderline

xtramile website grey
Xtra Mile Recordings present ‘Rock Against The Riots’ – a celebration of our fantastic roster of acts that will offer friends, supporters and music lovers everywhere something truly special…

On the 19th October 2011 at London’s Borderline venue, 5 acts from our eclectic and inspiring stable will be performing intimate acoustic sets as well as meeting the fans that have helped support them and the label.

On the bill are long term family members Chris T-T and Beans on Toast as well as new signings Mull Historical Society, The Loved One and Kyle D Evans the frontman from Retrospective Soundtrack Players. There will be goody bags, an Xtra Mile merch stand and through the powers of technology we will be linking up with one of our cherished acts currently touring North America. More info on that to come!

The gig is part of Xtra Mile’s ‘F**k The Fire’ campaign, a project born out of the ashes of the summer’s London Riots. When a fire tore down the Sony DADC Warehouse that housed [PIAS], a large distributor of over 150 independent record labels, all Xtra Mile’s new releases, limited editions and back catalogue went up in flames. So we teamed up with our friends at PledgeMusic and formed an exciting direct-to-fan campaign.

We invited fans to tell us what stock they would like us to replenish from our extensive catalogue and if we reach our targets we’ll get re-pressing right then and there! We’re currently on 98% which is just fantastic.

And if all that wasn’t enough, Xtra Mile continues to broaden its international reach by hosting a party on 18th October, across the pond in New York as part of the music industry festival CMJ. StringerBessant, Sophie Madeleine and Murray from The Xcerts are all confirmed to play.
