    Waxahatchee & Hurray For The Riff Raff - Tickets - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA - April 16th, 2018
    Out in the Storm, Katie Crutchfield's fourth album as Waxahatchee and her second release with Merge, is the blazing result of a woman reawakened. Her most autobiographical and honest album to date, Out in the Storm is a self-reflective anchor in the story of both her songwriting and her life.

Stick to Your Job Pictured here is a poster ...

Stick to Your Job Pictured here is a poster which encouraged employees to “stick to your job,” which encouraged workers not to drift from job to job because their dedicated work was vital to the war effort. This poster was produced by the United States Department of Labor and, like many other propaganda posters, was distributed to American factories in order to encourage workers to maximize efficiency for the war effort.

    Hi, We could do the usual record company "bio" about this new record, but, seriously...who gives a fuck? The world is a mess. This is just music. Music by someone who tends to believe that change starts in your own backyard. I'm just optimistic enough to believe that kind of thing can still help people.

    Bishop Briggs - Tickets - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA - May 18th, 2018
    While those in a Tokyo karaoke bar may not have realized it, they were witnesses to a life-altering experience for four-year-old Bishop Briggs. As she sang her first song in public, Bishop fell instantly in love with performing, and her auspicious debut served not only as an indelible touchpoint, but also the initial indicator of an unmistakable identity.

    "What should I do?" That's the question Merrill Garbus asks herself halfway through "ABC 123," the stunning centerpiece of the new Tune-Yards album, I can feel you creep into my private life. In 2014, Tune-Yards released Nikki Nack, which NPR called "dazzingly imaginative," while the NME hailed it as "easily Tune-Yards' finest work," and New York Magazine dubbed it "possibly the catchiest record of the year."

Join us for Citizen Archivist Week of Service...

Join us for Citizen Archivist Week of Service! In the spirit of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, join us January 15-19, 2018 for a week-long citizen archivist challenge. Our goal is to tag or transcribe 2,018 pages in the National Archives Catalog during Citizen Archivist Week of Service. Can you help us meet this challenge? Get started by visiting the Citizen Archivist Dashboard beginning January 15. During that week, we’ll have a special expanded missions session and lots of featured records waiting to be transcribed. For our new volunteers, you’ll also find instructions on how to create an account and get started. You can help us unlock history by tagging and transcribing primary source documents in the National Archives Catalog. As you add tags or transcriptions to these records, those words are added to our Catalog – improving search results, and making our records more discoverable online. The added benefit is that we’re unlocking the sometimes difficult to read text for all to understand. We like to say that as we tag and transcribe, we are unlocking history. Transcribe and tag some of our holdings today, a handful of which are linked to below: The Indictment of Samuel Maccubbin involved in the Baltimore 'Riot' of 1861: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/278869 Deposition of John Snyder: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/18545806 Information provided by Lester Matz and John C.
