6 Maggio | Largo Venue • Roma
It’s 2014 when Lady Sometimes Records emerges from the underwood of Rome (and my dreams too).
My ideas were pretty clear: a self-funded label that allowed me to be 100% independent, a roster producing only Italian bands dealing with English lyrics who had to be huge lovers of an elusive genre such as noise-pop. Sometimes a little more shoegaze or dreamy, some other times more electronic or wavey. In short, everything that is not at all trendy right now in Italy, but that sounds like the most sincere and incredibly international music we have today.
Four years have swept past and we crossed borders, played everywhere in Europe and struck collaborations with different ‘scenes’ all over the world, organized markets and festivals, published vinyl, cds, recorded cassettes and photocopied fanzine by hand – just as if it were 1988! Then we realized it was already 2018 and how much we would have loved to stop the time for a moment, listen to some beautiful music and have a toast all together.
Shoegazers, wavers, dream & psych lovers … we’ve set up this evening only for you and it will be so fun that you’re going to think: hey, that’s more than a festival, it’s a real party!
with Love, from your most romantic & noisy indie label…
