L.R.S. Records Celebrates 5th Anniversary


L.R.S. Records, based in Syracuse, recently held their 5th Anniversary celebration at The Lost Horizon in Syracuse. Founded five years ago by Mark Turley and Nic Oliver, L.R.S. Records works with small indie bands from around the world to release and market music in various formats, such as vinyl, CD, cassette tape and digital download. To learn more about L.R.S.

The evening’s festivities featured bands mostly from Central New York and surrounding regions. Two separate stages were set up to keep the music flowing through the evening.

Up first was the “intergalactic surf punk” of Syracuse based The Amazing Shakes. Their mask wearing alter egos, The Reverend TF45, Nurse Backbeat, and Moonlight Jackson, got the evening started with a fast and loud set. Participation Trophy played the main stage next with their unique blend of acoustic folk with a dash of Irish punk. Back on the small stage, Telegraph Hill played a one man acoustic set. While all the bands thanked Oliver and Turley for all they’ve done, Telegraph Hill’s Caleb Liber stated that “If it wasn’t for Nick and Mark the Syracuse music scene wouldn’t be as good. So I’m happy about that.”

On the main stage was Against the Giants, the first of two bands featuring Turley, who played drums with AtG. Slaughterhouse Chorus then played a hard rocking set before Turley once again returned to the main stage with Bridge Under Fire. This time he was on lead vocals and guitar. Wrapping up the night was Goodnight Forever and a main stage performance of blues rock from Matthew Blake.
