EXCLUSIVE WAREHOUSE FINDS:
brand new copies of rare vinyl at special prices...
We've been doing a little vinyl archeology here at the shop and let me tell you, it's dirty, dusty, hazardous work, but because we love our customers so much, we're going to make some of the fruits of our sweaty labor available on Record Store Day. For you funk soul scavengers, we have some very rare promo 7"s by Kon and Amir and DJ Muro on Rapster Records, and for you Techno nerds, a few copies of the even rarer Multiple Mirrors EP by Second-Hand Satellites on Three's Hallucination Ltd. label - a bonafide classic and one of Taimur Agha's "Top 5 of All Time." For the house heads, a real treat... the world's last 3 copies of UQ-009, the super limited and super deep Small Oak by Jus-Ed. These came straight form the man himself, and he was even kind enough to sign them for the occasion. Trading now on Discogs for 45-65 Euros, we'll be parting with these bad boys for a special one day only price... Once they're gone, they're gone, so on Saturday morning, make sure you brew some extra strong coffee and get a move on down to halcyon.
I Love Vinyl Tee-Shirts
While Scribe, OP!, Amir, JOn Oliver and The Twilite Tone are on the decks we'll be hawkin' wares... I Love Vinyl logo T-shirts will be for sale. You can get yours and have the Dream Team sign it! And don't Don't miss I Love Vinyl, now twice monthly, once "on the B-side" at Southpaw and on the final Saturday of the month at The Gallery at Le Poisson Rouge.
Records by the Pound: The new dollar bins!..
We're currently marking down tons of records in order to make some fresh dollar bins. But these goodies won't just be $1 per record. They're going to be $1 per pound! On average that will work out to about fitty cent a record. Nice. Price. Many crates worth!
Once again... Opening EARLY: 10:00am
