Updates and New Releases 12/13/2019
First off we would like to thank 8-Bit Creeps and Soft Speaker for putting on such a wonderful show at our shop last week. It was a great fun and good to hang out with everyone and see people having a good time. We look forward to having both bands back in the future.
Next up, we have another show at the shop this Saturday, Dec 13th at 2:00pm featuring three more wonderful local bands (and when we say local, it means they live right down the street). Thomas Comerford, Jessica Risker and Axons will all be gracing the shop with their wonderful music. See below for more info.
We have a ton of new releases that came in this week including new releases from DJ Shadow, local faves Droids Blood, Benoit Pioulard, The Liminanas, as well as killer reissues from Possessed, Exodus, Fela Kuti, Roy Montgomery, Screaming Females and a ton more. See below.
The following events will be happening in our humble little record store. Hope you can make it!!
Axons (single release) / Jessica Risker / Thomas Comerford Band
Saturday Dec 14th 2:00pm
Axons celebrates the release of the first single from their upcoming album I Object to Everything, which tells the true story of how two prisoners escaped from a federal prison in downtown Chicago. (This awesome art was provided by Joseph Jose Banks, one of the subjects of the record!)
Jessica Risker / Deadbeat plays delicate psychedelic folk songs from her 2018 record I See You Among the Stars along with new tunes.
Alt-country troubadour Thomas Comerford and his band pay tribute to the Velvet Underground on the 50th anniversary of VU's self-titled The Velvet Underground and their live recordings from The Matrix in San Fran that year.
We Buy Records
If you have any records you would like to sell for cash or store credit, you can bring them by the shop or give us a call to setup a house call.
