Courtland Records, this college’s music business project, is throwing a party for the release of the company’s first extended play disc, “In Transition.”
The five-track EP by punk/ska band Uptown Creepers will be given away at the party at 7 p.m. Saturday at Rock Bottom Tattoo Bar, 1033 Ave B.
“The venue is small, holds about 300 people, and we’d like to fill it up,” Marcus DeLeon, radio-television-broadcasting sophomore and assistant to the vice president of promotions at Courtland Records, said Monday.
Uptown Creepers started working with the recording class of MUSB 2309, The Record Industry, on Oct. 18 and finished in early November.
“In Transition” is free after the $6 cover charge for anyone 21 and up, or $8 for those 18 -20. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
Headlining the show are three local bands, Slick Kickens, The Rapskallions and Id, who like Uptown Creepers, also play punk/ska music. The first band is scheduled to perform at 8:30 p.m.
