Double Record Release Party at SOhO

zach_madden.jpgCorporate Nightmare Records, a Santa Barbara-based independent record label, is hosting a Double Record Release Party at SOhO Restaurant and Music Club, Wednesday, February 28, at 8pm. Local artist Zach Madden is releasing Don’t Come Back Too Small and The White Fires of Venus are debuting their album, Skin and Light. Opening up the five dollar show will be the newest member of the Corporate Nightmare family, Kinothek, a mood-driven rock band based out of Buellton, currently at work writing and recording their first full-length release. The middle set showcases The White Fires of Venus, whose Skin and Light was recorded by musician Jeff Sparks for CNR. They will be back by a full band for the performance. Sparks’ sweet, dreamy sound mines the same fertile musical grounds previously explored by Iron & Wine and Elliot Smith. The final act, Santa Barbara’s own Zach Madden, will be joined by a full band to perform songs off his follow-up to his 2003 self-titled debut. His lyric-driven folk-rock acoustic style is reminiscent of Death Cab for Cutie, The Get Up Kids and Wilco. Check out his webpage for a full bio and mp3 downloads.
