The performers include Grouper, Peter Broderick, Gabriel Saloman, Rauelsson, and Apartment Fox, and the two nights of music will conclude on Saturday night with a "spooky" afterparty DJ'ed by Liz Harris (Grouper). There's also a communal meal on Saturday and complimentary Ninkasi beer and Heart Coffee Roasters coffee all weekend. (Say wha?!?)
The celebration marks the launch of Beacon Sound's new record label, and shopkeep/impresario Andrew Neerman has a Kickstarter page set up to raise funds for Beacon Sound's first vinyl release, a 12-inch with music by Peter Broderick and Gabriel Saloman recorded at Type Foundry, on clear vinyl in a limited edition of 200. Check out the whole Kickstarter campaign here. Meanwhile, the Sou'wester weekend is $40 on top of accommodations, and reservations can be booked here.
