Thril Jockey's Quinceañera

2007_11_thrill_jockey.jpgThrill Jockey Records turns 15 this year, and in order to celebrate they've decided to throw themselves a couple of big-ass parties, one of which already occurred in London earlier month. However, the label has called Chicago home for over a decade, so we're expecting the 2 days of shows happening at Logan Square Auditorium on December 14 and 15 to blow London's party apart at the seams.

We're told they're setting up 2 stages and doing their best to transform the LSA's interior so that it is conducive to the massive celebration, and able to at least keep ther exterior walls from collapsing under the pressure of the excitement within. And they're pulling out all the stops with a massive (at last count) 17 band line-up including such luminaries as: ADULT., Fred Anderson Trio, Califone, Bobby Conn, Eleventh Dream Day, The Fiery Furnaces, Pit er Pat, Archer Prewitt, The Sea and Cake, Trans Am, and The Zincs.

Thrill Jockey is so excited about their upcoming birthday party, they want to give YOU presents! They've given Chicagoist two prize packs to give away, so enter below for your chance to win a special 15th Anniversary Thrill Jockey tote bag, and the limited Trey Told 'Em "Super Epic Thrill Jockey Mega Massive Anniversary Mix" CD.

The Thrill Jockey Records 15th Anniversary Show is all-ages and will be held at Logan Square Auditorium on December 14 and 15. Tickets are still available.
