Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records Celebrates 10 Years with Orchard Street Pop-up
Cult Records is making waves through the city over the next few weeks. The independent record label and online store created by Julian Casablancas (The Strokes, The Voidz), is celebrating its 10-year anniversary, and is lock-stock-and-barrel ahead of performances by both his bands at this year’s Governors Ball.
The label is revisiting its roots with a pop-up shop at 98 Orchard Street (May 28-29, 12-8pm), where exclusive merch from both their catalogue and artists will be available, as well as art from the likes of Ben Tipton, Johann Rashid, Whoman, and others. Festivities will also include a special performance by The Voidz at Market Hotel on May 29 (tickets on sale today at 10am).
(This is the space previously occupied by the troll-loving Castle Fitzjohns gallery until its closure earlier this year.)
In the meantime, Voidz fans can finally check out the band’s latest hazy, euphoric video for “Permanent High School,” featuring Suki Waterhouse and Theodora Richards (daughter of Keith Richards).
Back in February, Cult Records x The Voidz hosted a similar retail experience in Los Angeles, where the video looped throughout, but had yet to be officially released. The wait is over.
