Don Giovanni Records celebrates 20 years, announces 20th Anniversary expo in Philly - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Don Giovanni Records marks two decades as an independent label with the Don Giovanni Records 20th Anniversary Expo, scheduled for October 6th and 7th at First Unitarian Church. Spread throughout both days are a range of live performances from Tenement (playing their first show since 2017), Hunchback, Laura Stevenson, Sammus, Mikey Erg, Roadside Graves, Mechanical Canine, Weakened Friends, Paisley Fields, Chris Gethard, Shellshag, and Rodeo Boys in addition to a mystery headliner that has yet to be announced . Expo goers can also explore the fair in between sets, digging through record crates, looking at art, and paging through books.

Label owner Joe Steinhardt excitedly writes, “I can’t believe we made it 20 years, and thinking about how the label started I’m still not completely sure how we did. To celebrate we’re going to hold an expo in Philadelphia, because it feels like there aren’t enough expos these days and it’s time we do something about it. In the spirit of the label, we’re keeping the tickets cheap, the stages small, and the good bands over abundant. So come on down to our 20th Anniversary Expo, October 6th and 7th at the First Unitarian Church in Philly. Saturday during the daytime we’re going to have a record, book, and art fair free for all who attend either night (or $5 if you want to just come to the fair). Tickets go on sale Friday at 10am.”

Saturday’s fair will also feature acoustic performances from Homeless Gospel Choir, Kym Register, She/Her/Hers and Maura Weaver, free for those with tickets to either night and $5 without. Tickets for Friday and Saturday go on sale Friday, July 14 at 10 a.m..
