Swan City Sounds brings cassettes back

Clifford Parody

by Kelly Fahey

In his living room that doubles as a makeshift studio, joined by his fiancée Jess, 3-month old daughter Charlie, and his dog Rouge, Clifford Parody excitedly presents to me a Recordex tape duplicator: the machine that keeps his DIY tape label, Swan City Sounds, up and running.

A modest $90 machine and the cost of supplies are the only overhead for the label he started with co-founder Brandon Adams less than three years ago in his hometown of Lakeland, Fla. Since moving to Greensboro in July 2013, Parody has released an impressive collection of tapes by local musicians including hip-hop artist Dante CK, the Old One-Two and his latest release, a collection of B-sides and rarities by Black Santa.

The Weekender, Oct. 23-26: The Purple Rain edition

The Purple One has a palpable presence in Winston-Salem this weekend.

It’s homecoming weekend in Greensboro, but it’s being upstaged in Winston-Salem by Prince, who isn’t even in town right now. Or ever. Dig it, if you will.

WEEKEND

  • The Greatest Homecoming on Earth takes over NC A&T University this weekend, with a load of activities, entire platoons of alumni in town, a parade and a big game against Florida A&M. Take the Aggies and the over on this one. (GSO)
  • Carson McCullers’ Southern coming-of-age tale The Member of the Wedding sees 12-year-old Tomboy Frankie yearning for bigger and better things. It runs through Nov. 9 at Triad Stage. (GSO)
  • The Winston-Salem Dash and Peppercorn Theatre team up to bring Field of Fears to the ballpark, a scare-fest that includes a hayride, a spiderweb maze and a Face Your Fears trail.

2014 Triad election guide

141022_cover_illustration_2000x1500

We’re fast approaching Election Day in a midterm with contours similar to 2010. That was the last time a US Senate race was at the top of the ballot. But the terrain is different this year: In 2010, the Republicans rode a wave of conservative reaction against the election of President Obama; this year, partisan lines are hardened and progressives have their own reasons to be mobilized, most stemming from the behavior of the Republican-controlled General Assembly.

The top-billed contest between Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan and Republican challenger Thom Tillis is expected to be the most expensive US Senate race in the history of North Carolina, and could determine the balance of power in the chamber. Read More
