Chicago label Thrill Jockey Records, who focus most heavily on experimental music and indie rock, will be celebrating their 20th anniversary in NYC on September 15 at Webster Hall with a stacked lineup of Tortoise, Future Islands, Matmos, Liturgy, and D. Charles Speer & the Helix. Tickets for that show go on sale Thursday (7/19) at noon.
