From the Workers Club:

At the Workers Club, we hold our local and independent music and arts
community in extremely high regard and believe that nurturing and supporting
our creative community is of the upmost importance.

But behind many of these bands and artists is a side of the creative community
rarely publicly celebrated or acknowledged, that being the Independent Record
Label. In today’s climate of the wonderful world of the music industry, these
people are some of the hardest working and often under-appreciated pioneers,
obsessives and passionate music lovers out there.

Here at The Workers Club, we think that’s worth celebrating, and have designed
a series of nights happening each Wednesday entitled ‘The Released Series’
specifically to acknowledge these labels, with each night personally curated by
the person or people behind the labels, showcasing their favourite bands, artists
and DJs each week.

As part of the Series, the Workers Club will be running the ‘Released Record
Stand,’ inspired by NYC’s ‘the Cake Shop,’ a half venue-half independent
record store, ‘the Released Record Stand’ is a semi-permanent record stand
set up each week giving labels the opportunity to have their releases available
for sale not only on the night of their curated show, but for the duration of the
series with labels taking 100% of all sales.
