HOUSE OF VANS/ RECORD STORE DAY/ WAX TRAX! RECORDS- SOUNDCHECK
HOUSE OF VANS/ RECORD STORE DAY / WAX TRAX! RECORDS WITH MINISTRY & COLD CAVE- SOUNDCHECK
House of Vans Presents: Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records in conjunction with Record Store Day 2019
House of Vans Chicago
Saturday April 13 2019
The lead up to the actual main events in the late afternoon / early evening from House of Vans Chicago:
Soundcheck with Al Jourgenson and his band Ministry, with special guest Chris Connelly on vocal.
What a day.
We have a special screening of “Industrial Accident: The Story of Wax Trax! Records”, followed by a panel discussion, a Q&A, then performances from Ministry and Cold Cave.
If that’s not enough, Wax Trax! Records also has a pop up shop going on as well, and plenty of Wax Trax! memorabilia emblazoned on the walls of House of Vans Chicago, courtesy of painstaking work from Glenn Russell, and live DJ accompaniment brought to you by none other than Bud Sweet.
A Chicago affair through in and through out, with plenty of laughs and light hearted humor from Al Jourgenson of Ministry throughout soundcheck, making this event at House of Vans that more special.
Wax Trax! Records means so much to so many people, the devoted followers of the label and record store, the presence of Franke Nardiello of My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Chris Connelly, Julia Nash, Mark Skilicorn, Sean Joyce, and of course, the Wax Trax! faithful in droves.
Soundcheck with Ministry and Cold Cave, let alone setting up the chairs for the screening of the documentary, the pop up shop for Wax Trax! are all included in this batch of photos, plus some behind the scenes going’s on leading up to the actual events later in the evening.
Those pictures from the performances, let alone the fans watching the screening of the film, should follow shortly.
