See inside Prophets of Rage’s performance at a Long Beach record store: On the heels of the release of the self-titled debut from Prophets of Rage, the supergroup played a sold-out in-store performance at Long Beach’s Fingerprints Records Friday, Sept. 22. The 250-person capacity record store was packed with eager fans who scored tickets by buying the new album. The group is made up of Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine, Chuck D and DJ Lord of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill. The performance was yet another get for the well-known record store which often hosts big name acts on its tiny stage, including Cold War Kids, the Foo Fighters and Ryan Adams. Fingerprints owner Rand Foster said members of the Prophets of Rage reached out to set up the performance.

Paisley’s Paolo Nutini set to wow fans with unique gig in town’s record store, The singer wants to give a boost to local shop Feel The Groove by staging a one-off show for people who buy music there: Paolo Nutini is giving 60 fans the chance to see him play a tiny one-off show in a Paisley record store. The singer wants to boost his local shop Feel The Groove, on Causeyside Street, by staging the unique show for people who buy music there.Paolo told the Sunday Mail: “We want to encourage that thing of making the trip to your local record store. It’s easy enough to go on iTunes or Spotify and get a song. “It’s not like I have a record out I’m trying to sell. The idea is you buy any music in the shop, you spend a fiver, you get a token. A tenner you get two, £20 you get four. “Each token is a chance to win – they go in the hat and 30 people are picked. Each gets to bring somebody along to the in-store show.

LCD Soundsystem Hid a Secret Message on the Vinyl of American Dream: If you’re in possession of a vinyl copy of American Dream, a look at the LP’s D-side will reveal an etching that reads “SEE U IN 5 YEARS.” Of course, it’s some self-deprecating humour in reference to their own five-year hiatus that they ended up returning from. You can find some proof of the American Dream etching below. Messages in the runout grooves of vinyl records are hardly uncommon. The D-side of Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories vinyl release reads “IF LOVE IS THE ANSWER YOU’RE HOME” in reference to their song “Touch,” while some pressings of the Clash’s London Calling feature the words “Tear,” “Down,” “The” and “Walls” on sides A, B, C and D, respectively. And those are just two of countless examples.

The Rolling Stones hope fans will warm to a deluxe version of ‘Their Satanic Majesties Request,’ their most disparaged albums: “The average concert ticket for the band’s 2012 50th Anniversary tour cost $624,” he said. “The fans filling all of those arenas probably won’t balk at spending a little bit more than average for this reissue.” With teenagers and millennials helping to drive resurgent sales in vinyl and other physical media, there may be an audience beyond just Baby Boomers, Furbee said. “There’s a good chance that anyone in their teens or early to mid-20s may have only experienced music as a digital file,” he said. “I’m not surprised at all that young adults are building record collections now, as they strive to find a deeper connection with the artists and music they love.”
