CT-X (Captured Tracks) 10th Anniversary Tour

The Olympic, Thursday, Nov. 1


Captured Tracks has put out quite a few noteworthy releases since it was founded in 2008. These include such acclaimed albums as Perfect Pussy's Say Yes to Love (2014), Mac Demarco's Salad Days (2014) and DIIV's Is the Is Are (2016). With names like those on its roster, the Brooklyn-based label could've easily put together some kind of self-congratulatory celebration for its 10-year anniversary.

Label founder Mike Sniper and company weren't content to rest on their aural laurels, though. Instead, they organized a North American tour for three of Captured Tracks' up-and-coming acts: somber, folk-tinged songstress Lina Tullgren; muscular, abrasive New Zealand trio Wax Chattels; and hypnotic, unsettling Leeds post-punk group Drahla. As Sniper explained in a statement posted on the label's website, the CT-X tour represents "our chance to give fans the opportunity to see something new so that maybe one day they can say, 'I was there 10 years ago!'"
