Considered by lovers of vinyl to be the greatest day of the year, New Orleans newest purveyors of wax have a incredible day of positive vibrations and aural excitement scheduled for Saturday.
The owners of the shop, which is located in the Bywater at 3401 Chartres Street, are promising “hundreds of crazy and cool exclusive records” to be released when the doors open at 11 AM. There will be bands all day and food and booze courtesy of Reginelli’s Pizza.
Since they are expecting die-hards to be lined up prior to the actual opening, St. Coffee will be on hand to provide sustenance for the serious collectors queuing at the door. DJ Matty will be spinning from 11 AM until 12:30 PM when trombonist Charlie Halloran of Meschiya Lake & the Li’l Big Horns takes over with his solo project.
The rest of the day’s musical lineup features Blind Texas Marlin and the Ramble Tamble Bramble Bramblers at 1:30 PM, Jonny Corndawg from Memphis at 2:30 PM, Boom Chick from Brooklyn at 3:30 PM and Die Rotzz at 4:30 PM.
This is a street party as well and DJs will be entertaining outside the store. Expect to see Sarah Mason with DJ Suzy Q of le Candy Shoppe, DJ Yamin and DJ Bunny.
Exclusives are also being promised including extremely limited edition mixtapes of extremely rare/hard-to-find/obscure punk rock 7 inches created by Andy from Die Rotzz. Also some beautiful custom 45 adapters by Tard will be available.
