“Cellar Door Records Volume III” Eight years ago, a small coffee shop in Madison, Ohio opened its doors, hoping to give local bands a place to play. Cellar Door Coffee had a 135-person capacity and two visionaries at the helm: college students and musicians Justin Markert and Rick Fike, who wanted to bring the electricity of local music to their small town. Since then, Cellar Door has attracted the likes of Oh My God, The Detachment Kit, Hero Pattern, The Heavenly States, Xela and The Pink Spiders. Their coffee shop had an organic vibe that could encompass whatever act caught their eye. Cellar Door was booking everything from acoustic singer/songwriters to hardcore shows, and soon, nationally touring bands were blowing into town. With a clientele demanding more music, the pair soon began their own label: Cellar Door Records. Soon, they released the first of a collection, “Cellar Door Records Volume I”. Printed and assembled by hand, the disc offered two tracks from six favorite artists and was distributed for free. Soon after, the coffee shop was sold off and the guys returned to a “normal” life. It wasn’t until a re-partnering in 2007 that Cellar Door Records was reanimated. Markert, Fike and new partner Adam Butcher released “Cellar Door Records Volume II”, whose success surpassed several individual artists’ albums. Now, the self-made men are back at the table with a clearly defined goal. Their latest venture, appropriately titled “Cellar Door Records Volume III”, will showcase more talented local artists. This collected work of the best and brightest acts in Cleveland will be the focus of a release party on Friday, March 18 at the Grog Shop. Joshua Jesty, Humble Home, Rob Geer, Moonshake and Frozen Hellsicles will be performing, along with many more. Tickets are $10 and include a copy of the album; show starts at 8.
