Hear one of Empty Space Orchestra’s Record Store Day songs

Friday, April 15th, 2011, 7:40 am by Ben Salmon

As mentioned in today’s Feedback column in GO! Magazine, tomorrow is Record Store Day, and Ranch Records (831 Wall Street, Bend) is celebrating with some special RSD releases, free giveaways and an Empty Space Orchestra show in the alley behind the store at 1 p.m. It should be a pretty cool day.

Props to Empty Space, too, for getting into the collectible, scarcity-obsessed spirit of Record Store Day by putting together a limited-edition two-song release that they’ll be selling for $5 tomorrow. Just a couple days ago, they were pushing to finish the groovy custom covers, shown by drummer Lindsey Elias in the photo above.

So, if you want those two songs, your best bet is to be at Ranch tomorrow around 1 p.m. If you can’t be there, though, the band was also nice enough to make one of the two tracks — “It’s Hard to Play Basketball in the Dark” — available for free download to Frequency readers! Stream or grab it right here:

As long as we’re on the subject of ESO, advance tickets to their album-release show on May 19 at the Century Center will go on sale at the band’s website on Monday. They’ll be $15, which also gets you a free instant download of the album. Also on the bill: Diego’s Umbrella and The Quick & Easy boys.
