You can’t watch Game of Thrones at Videology anymore

Game-of-Thrones

Not sure why HBO has singled out Videology, but you’re going to have to find a new place to watch naked redheads get torn apart by wolves:

HBO has sent a letter to Williamsburg bar Videology telling them not to show Game of Thrones episodes on Sunday nights. “They said that it’s not allowed to be shown in a public setting,” says the bar’s co-owner, James Leet.

If you don’t own a record released by the Numero Group then you have a great chance to rectify that this weekend as the Chicago-based re-issue label will be in town.

The shop will be at Human NYC on 110 Meserole Avenue in Greenpoint from midday on Friday the 24th until 8pm on Sunday the 26th of April (MAP). Details can be found on this Facebook event page (edit – new link as per comment below).

Everything the label release is done at huge effort and love, digging into the most obscure material that was either long lost, forgotten, or just didn’t get a fair crack of the whip at the time. The label excels at unearthing soul and funk gems, but lately has done an amazing job with slowcore and proto-grunge, with the likes of Codeine, Bedhead and Unwound getting lavish boxset treatments. It’s hard to go wrong with anything you could buy, but some of my personal recommendations are below the jump.
