208 MUSIC VIDEO SHOW SCREENING AND FIRST BORNS IN-STORE WITH FREE PAYETTE BREWING CO. BEER OCT. 4!

Head to The Record Exchange (1105 W. Idaho St.) on First Thursday, Oct. 4, for the 208 Music Video Show Screening with a special performance by First Borns and free Payette Brewing Co. beer! The festivities kick off at 5 p.m. As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages.

The third annual 208 Music Video Show drew submissions from dozens of Idaho musicians and directors. The winners were crowned at a First Thursday event at Neurolux in September. Part of the prize for the first-place band, First Borns, was a showcase 30-minute set at the RX during the Oct. 4 screening. Natasha Louie, director of First Borns’ winning video for “Gene” will discuss the video and answer questions during a post-performance chat.

It’s also First Thursday, so we’ll have our regular store-wide First Thursday specials, too. Hope you can join us for this fantastic display of homegrown creativity!
