Shake It Records has a treat for you Saturday— quite a few of them, actually. On top of the borderline-Hoarders amount of music they have available for sale, they’ve also arranged a meet-and-greet, Q&A session with a certain Talib Kweli. Maybe you’ve heard of him. Whether or not he’s performing really depends on Kweli’s schedule, but as Darren Blase, co-owner of Shake It says, “The fact that he’s showing up is pretty awesome.”
Wussy also sat down at Ultrasuede and recorded an acoustic set of their album Funeral Dress, which is being offered as Shake It’s Record Store Day exclusive. Remember how Foxy Shazam is from Cincinnati? They'll be repping their home city with a stripped down set inside Shake It. Apparently globetrotting got tiresome. Talib Kweli will appear at 1 p.m., Wussy at 7 p.m. and Foxy Shazam at 8:30 p.m. The entertainment is free.
