KEXP Suggests: Seattle Benefit for Hurricane-Drowned Norton Records @ Tractor Tavern 12/2

More hurricane heartbreak news comes from NYC, and this time it hits music fans hard–Norton Records‘ Brooklyn warehouse was badly damaged by freak super-storm Hurricane Sandy and their massive vinyl catalog was drowned in four feet of water. See for yourself in the video below:

Billy Miller and Miriam Linna, who formed Norton Records in 1986, have been dedicated to reissuing classic forgotten rock and roll from the 50s to the 70s, as well as the occasional new band and some cult favorites that would have been relegated to the dustbin of history had it not been for their care and their work. Norton is in need of some help, so a record sale and benefit show is being held on December 2 at the Tractor Tavern because YOU CAN’T DROWN THE LOUD SOUND!! Pick up your tickets here.

The record sale begins at 6 pm, and, in the spirit of Norton Records, it should be great time to pick up plenty of odd, rare, and one-of-a-kind vinyl. At 8:30 the bands will start playing. The lineup includes Young Fresh Fellows, Girl Trouble, the New Original Sonic Sound (members of Mudhoney, Girl Trouble, Tom Price Desert Classic, YFF), The F**king Eagles, The Tripwires, Less Than Equals, Trick Bag DJ’s Miss Lilli & Brian, DJ Steve Turner, Tim “Purple” Hayes, and MORE!!! Keep updated on who joins the bill and event-related news on the benefit’s Facebook page.
