Lilystars Records marks the 4th year of its creation and advocacy of fine indie pop music with an anniversary party on April 13, Friday, at AMOS Cafe in Quezon City.
Asked about his thoughts on the label’s 4 years, label manager and The Camerawalls frontman, Clementine, said, “I can remember Johan Angergard* (Labrador, Club 8, Acid House Kings) telling me it takes around four years for an indie label to really make anything. I’m looking forward to that.”
Founded in April 2008, Lilystars has, since then, signed various local indie acts, released a full-length album, several singles, EPs, videos, contributed to local & foreign compilation albums, and staged tribute nights and major gigs via its own production outfit, The POP Shoppe! Its present roster of artists include The Gentle Isolation, Your Imaginary Friends and banner artist, The Camerawalls.
Projects lined-up in 2012 include more single releases, tours locally and of Southeast Asia, as well as several collaborations with other like-minded artists and record labels abroad. All these are geared towards strengthening the presence of Lilystars’ artists and their music advocacy in the local & global independent music scene.
Lilystars’ 4th Anniversary Party by The POP Shoppe! At AMOS Cafe on April 13 will feature performances by the label’s roster of artists, Kate Torralba and the Flippin’ Soul Stompers.
