see: Kelp Records 13th anniversary weekend

Kelp record
Congrats to reader J.P. for getting the guestlistspot giveaway.

Is there much more to say about Kelp Records? Over the last week, dial613 has typed the label's name on here more times than 'flecton crotch shot' has been Google image-searched in the same timespan, which surely speaks volumes.
The 13th Anniversary Weekend lineup is below, along with mp3s for a bunch of the acts. Each show should be a great time, not only for the music, but the atmosphere too: the music is coming from a bunch of really nice people doing things they like to have a good time.

Throughout the weekend, Kelp is also allowing you the opportunity to be a nice person and be rewarded for it, too: bring in 5 used CDs to be sold for the benefit of Parkinson Society Ottawa and get Kelpmitzvah: Kelp Turns 13 (the label's 13th anniversary sampler) for free. So go out and dig up your old unused albums, because the sampler is a great compilation (featuring Kelp acts as well as other locals Sarah Hallman, The Soirée, and Mark Wilson) and has such a clever name, isn't it a clever name?
