This show has actually been up for a bit, but I just got around to seeing it. Do yourself a favor and check it out before it’s gone in a few days.
100 Records is the culmination of a massive year long project by artist and musician Sonny Smith, front man of the group Sonny & The Sunsets. Smith invited 100 artists to produce 100 7” record covers for fictional bands. Smith concocted the personas of these fictitious bands, then wrote and recorded one hundred songs to correspond with each 7” record. Recording with his band The Sunsets, as well as with members of notable bands such as the Sandwitches, Fresh N Only’s, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, and the Kelley Stoltz Band, each record stands on its own as a solid piece of music and spans a wide range from pop, concept ideas, spoken word, instrumentals, surf, garage, folk and rock n roll.
