Yoyo A Go Go 20th Anniversary!

This month marks the 20th anniversary of the first Yoyo a Go Go festival in Olympia, Washington. These fests helped inspire other festivals like Homo a Gogo and Ladyfest, and had amazing and diverse line-ups that extended from Sleater Kinney to Elliott Smith to Negativland to The Mountain Goats to Beck to Modest Mouse to The Gossip and beyond.

We're honored to be the sole distributor for the last remaining first printings of the Yoyo a Go Go compilations, and many of the Yoyo Recordings releases. To celebrate this anniversary, we're throwing in a Music Grab Bag with every Yoyo Recordings purchase for the rest of the summer! Happy 20th, Yoyo a Go Go!

This piece from the great 10 Things Jesus Wants You to Know zine gives some history of the fest. And these original album and poster designs were made by the one and only Tae Won Yu.
