Band together to help NYC's Norton Records, ravaged after Hurricane Sandy. I'll let organizer Dan O'Connell explain their situation: “These amazing folks who have brought all of us deep cuts and primitive beats for almost 30 years just had their livelihoods stripped from them. Now their insurance is saying that catastrophes are not covered in their policy. They are manually going through each piece of vinyl and CDs, removing them from the trashed packaging, and washing each piece by hand, trying to salvage as much of their products as possible. They cannot afford to reprint every sleeve or piece of artwork and are asking for help.. Any one of you folks that are in the garage punk/soul/surf/rockabilly scene have listened to something or been influenced by this label. It's time to show our love for them and help out our family in this time of need.” Performers at this benefit include Cheetah Chrome, DEEZEN, Eddy Price and DJs Jewey Ramone and Twinkle VanWinkle. Buy raffle tickets to grab prizes from record stores and labels and other local shops.
