Barsuk would like to thank all the artists who played such amazing shows at our 15th anniversary celebration, as well as those artists who weren't here with us our label is defined by the music you've made and continue to make; the sounds and songs you brought to Seattle during this crazy extended party blew our minds.
Many thanks also to everyone who came out to enjoy the festivities, to our wonderful hosts at Bumbershoot, The Showbox, The Neptune, Neumos, The Tractor, The Sunset and KEXP, and to all our friends near and far who support the bands we love, including the many people who have massively impacted the label and our artists over the years but who often go unacknowledged.
Thanks to Gilda's Club Seattle (beneficiary of funds raised by the show and anniversary merchandise) for all that they do for people impacted by cancer in our community. You can still get limited-edition anniversary sweatshirts and t-shirts here, and donate directly to Gilda's Club Seattle here.
BARSUK'S 15th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION HAS BEEN DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF CHRIS TAKINO, BETH NUBY, AND ANDY KOTOWICZ, FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS WITHOUT WHOM BARSUK WOULDN'T BE THE SAME, OR MIGHT NOT BE HERE AT ALL.
