Captured Tracks Announces CT5 Festival: Five Years of Captured Tracks Captured Tracks Announces CT5 Festival: Five Years of Captured Tracks

capFive years ago, in the long dark faraway of Brooklyn, NY, there lived a man of mystery named Mike decided what the world needed most was another record label and so he went ahead and started one. Captured Tracks was the name. Their first release, CT-001 was a 12″ EP of some fuzzed-out retro librarian named Dee Dee who’d go on to fashion and fame under the Dum Dum Girls moniker. It was Charles’ second review for us (his first, counter intuitively, being Seconds by Mr. Mike’s own Blank Dogs which was actually CT-002) so you might say we have a certain sentimental fondness for the label which is currently teasing at release 175 and has, in their time, offered landmark records by DIIV, Beach Fossils, Soft Moon, Thee Oh Sees and a slew of other ephemera including a remarkable 80s revivalist project (teaching us about The Wake and The Cleaners from Venus among others) and something called the Shoegaze Archives (which helped ensure the return of Medicine!).

They even have an honest to god store.

And this summer, they’re throwing a party to celebrate themselves with some of their favorite alumni. CT5 Festival will take place 8/31 and 9/1 (it’s a weekend) at The Well and will feature performances by DIIV, Mac DeMarco, Wild Nothing, Beach Fossils, The Soft Moon, Widowspeak, Minks, Chris Cohen, Blouse, Heavenly Beat, Soft Metals & Alex Calder. Tickets come at a variety of prices with a variety of perks that you should really consider investing in, like, POST HASTE because Captured Tracks don’t ever stick around too damn long. We’ve got the flyer and all the relevant ticket info below.

Seriously, though, you should go and sweat it out with these cats. They (and you) will fucking love it.
