Why do you people bother to comment. It makes you look stupid. This is a record label showcase. Tickets for Wookiefest will be on sale soon. Be patient.

No Shit! Anyone who doesn't know the importance of this record label is just plain ignorant.

Neutral Milk Hotel has got to be one of the best Bands Ever!!!!! wonder if jeff will make any type of appearance?

Hey tmrc66, it's ironic that you have a picture of Les for your profile yet you find a record label that released so much music that shared his same ideas "terrible"

Merge Records is one of the most important UNDERGROUND record labels of the last 20 years. They have supported a lot of good rock n roll bands and shows without trying to go mainstream. Just cause it's not your favorite lame, major label hippie/electronica wannabe band on the roster doesnt mean it aint good.
