Phratry Records Ten Year Anniversary

Phratry Records Ten Year Anniversary

By on  Comments

August 2014 marked the ten year anniversary for Phratry Records, and to celebrate, the label is hosting two nights of music October 17-18 at the Southgate House Revival in Newport, KY featuring many regional bands from the Phratry roster and several special guests. The show is All Ages and just $5 each night. 

Since 2004, Phratry Records (Cincinnati, Ohio) has built a catalog of nearly 50 releases and a roster of touring bands from the United States, Canada and Europe. Uninterested in being a genre-specific record label, Phratry boasts a diverse catalog -- everything from rock, punk, metal and noise to folk, indie-rock and contemporary classical -- by artists who share decidedly non-mainstream ethos. Phratry Records is an underground record label focused on art and community. It continues in the tradition of DIY, independent record labels and owes a considerable debt to imprints such as SST, Touch & Go, Dischord, Amphetamine Reptile and more.
