Warp Records 20th Anniversary Releases and Shows

The always amazing indie music label Warp that has come to be known as the ultimate sub-genre label is celebrating its 20th anniversary in September. And if you thought you celebrated your 20th birthday, you have no f*#$&@% clue how to do it up big because these dudes are going insane. Aside from releasing a huge box set featuring new songs, unreleased material, personal favorites by founder Steve Beckett, and the top ten Warp Song voted by the fans, the record and film label are putting on a series of live events and will then broadcast them and the mobile and web content platform Babelgum.
