Silber Records 15-Year Anniversary with Aarktica, Clang Quartet, Electric Bird Noise, Hotel Hotel, Irata, Northern Valentine, Remora, Slicnaton, Small Life Form, Wet Teens, Weather Machine

When: Sat., April 2, 7 p.m. 2011

"I would love to be at a higher level, sales-wise, but not necessarily profile-wise," Silber Records owner Brian John Mitchell told the Independent Weekly in a long 2009 profile. "I feel like Silber has a good brand, and that there are people who buy basically everything we put out." Mitchell was right about his brand: During the last 15 years, his home-based experimental record label has built a haven for an array of experimental sounds, unified by mutualistic senses of dark unease and tonal unrest. From the spectral solo guitar works of Low's Alan Sparhawk to the brazen caterwauls of Clang Quartet and Aarktica, Mitchell has explored the outbound edges of indie rock to gather descendants of noise rock, 4AD atmospherics and aleatoric execution. Silber's responsible for more than 90 releases during the last decade-plus, and tonight, an astonishing 13 of his artists will gather for a free anniversary show.
