After 15 years of success, Yep Roc seems increasingly like a rare sanctuary for the feeling of what it means to covet music and to cherish the chance to share it, no matter what it means for the bottom line or the market dossier. This calendar celebrates those 15 years with hard rocking photos from Yep Roc's 15th Anniversary Festival in Carrboro, NC. Yep Roc 15 celebrated not only the genre bending label, but the artists that have contributed to making the label's name known.
Now that the dust from YR15, Yep Roc's official 15th anniversary bash, has settled, we're taking a look back at the four days of amazing music and fun with the YR15 Official Calendar. This 15 month (yep, that's three bonus months!) calendar is the first chance for fans to check out the official photos and live recordings from the festival.
Each month puts the spotlight on one of your favorite Yep Roc artists who peformed at YR15 and features an original photo taken during their set. In addition, on the first of each of the fifteen months included in the caldendar, there is an exclusive link and code that will unlock one new track from that artist recorded live during the festival. Artists featured in the calendar include Nick Lowe, The Sadies, Tift Merritt, Liam Finn, Jukebox the Ghost, Josh Rouse, Sloan, Los Straitjackets, Chuck Prophet, John Doe, Chatham County Line, Fountains of Wayne, Dave Alvin, Cheyenne Marie Mize and Robyn Hitchcock. Turning the page on a calendar has never been this awesome!
The calendar also includes notable dates in Yep Roc history and special discount codes to save on music and merchandise at the Yep Roc Store.
The YR15 Official Calendar will begin shipping on December 14th, 2012.
