For nearly a decade, Death by Audio was a recording studio, an effect pedal workshop, a music venue, and a home to musicians and artists. Oliver Ackermann (A Place to Bury Strangers) found the warehouse in 2005 and along with fellow artists in Dirty on Purpose, he started hosting concerts to help pay to build out bedrooms and studios. By 2007 DBA was hosting bands almost every night. Over 1,800 shows later, DBA announced its impending eviction with an epic final month of programming. Start Your Own Fucking Show Space tracks the last days of DBA in November 2014, a sweaty, bittersweet homecoming for many artists who began their career there.
Presented in chronological running order, Start Your Own Fucking Show Space features live recordings from 26 bands over the venue’s final month. The LP set is housed in a double gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeves listing every one of the 1,800+ shows in the venue’s history. There is a limited pressing of the compilation on clear with opaque blue & red vinyl, available while supplies last.
Limited to 1000.
