This is really cool news! The 9:30 Club is starting its own record label, with Justin Jones becoming the first artist they will represent.

9:30 Club will be celebrating their new record label, along with their first release, Jones’s The Little Fox EP on September 16th. The party will feature a Jones performance. While tickets won’t be sold to the general public, you will have opportunities to get them via lottery and social media outlets.

What do you guys think? I do question if this is the right time in the music industry to launch your own label, but I’m a big fan of the 9:30 and support any venture they start.
