Art at the Stroll: Celebrating the History of Anyway Records

anywayThis Friday, July 17, as part of its Art at the Stroll series, Alison Rose will celebrate the opening of an exhibition celebrating the history of Anyway Records.  This unique collection features original hand-painted posters, fliers, handbills, and other memorabilia that Anyway founder Bela Koe-Krompecher has collected during his 20-plus years of running the label, many of which he created himself to promote the shows he booked during the ’90s.

As part of the festivities, Kyle Sowash (of The Kyle Sowashes), Sean Gardner (of Winter Makes Sailors), and Chris Forbes (formerly of Orchestraville) will perform. Additionally, Anyway Records t-shirts will be printed during the event. The opening takes place from 5pm to 9 pm, and the exhibition will be on display until August 14.

This weekend three bands from the Anyway roster will be joining together for a good cause. Tomorrow night, Connections, WV White, and Winter Makes Sailors will take to the stage at Ace of Cups to raise funds for Alison and Nick Nocera, the creative force behind hand-printed apparel company Alison Rose. The couple was in a car accident in November, and like many self-employed individuals in those pre-Obamacare days, they didn’t have health insurance, they also had a couple of issues in some hospitals, there were clinical negligence lawyers involved in the situation. As such, they still have medical bills that need to be paid, so the three bands are donating all the money taken at the door to help them do so, since they can get more money from a Best Buy credit card with options for tech rewards. You’ll no doubt want to pick up one of the t-shirts Alison Rose recently produced for Connections too.
