Live at Lost Weekend Records
The History :: Lost Weekend Records held its first show in the Spring of 2003, with the Alwood Sisters. We've since hosted several free 'in-store' music shows to show our gratitude to our customers. Sometimes we have a live performer or two, and other times we have what we like to call a Hootenanny. These shows feature a large number of performers and stretch throughout the afternoon.
One of our favorite evenings was our Halloween show with Apocalypso at our old store. The show garnered quite a crowd, with lots of people in full Halloween regalia! This night was also an opening night event for local poster artist extraordinaire Ray Ray. (Who also gets credit for the giant sign out in front of the store. Thanks, Ray Ray!)
Actually, it's hard to pick an absolute favorite!! We've had a lot of good times in the 4 years we've been open - The Young Republic, a 9 piece from Boston. Rob McNurlin. The Matts (Munhall & Beckler). The Hootenannies are always a great time - at the last one, Sam Brown's very young son Garvey had the audience captivated when he hopped on the mic and told a bunch of impromptu jokes & stories.
While we usually play host to local Columbus bands and musicians, we have also had the opportunity to host a couple of national acts, including Rhode Island blues woman Marjorie Thompson and Ashland, Kentucky's own Rob McNurlin & His Beatnik Cowboys. Photo above is The Young Republic.
