Saturday June 21st from 9-5, the New Orleans Record Raid, for one day only. Billed as the largest record show in all of Louisiana, this sounds like a lot of fun, but be warned–the nearest ATM is a block and a half away, so come stocked with cash or you might just miss that awesome vinyl find…
This record show is put on by a non-profit, “to benefit recorded music culture in New Orleans, Louisiana and the Gulf South Region” according to the official site, which also adds, “For the most part, our shows are open-ended: we welcome all formats of recorded media from all vintages and musical styles, and try to keep the shows accessible for collectors and sellers. We have had over 50 vendors from all over the region, and it’s currently the only event of its kind in Louisiana.”
This looks like a must-attend for any vinyl lover within driving distance. The Pittsburgh JazzLive International Festival, June 20-22 in Pittsburgh, is host to this super-amazing vinyl record event featuring vendors from all over the USA including Cleveland, Washington D.C. and Pittsburgh’s own Jerry’s Records, which is so massive and mind-blowing that you really need a whole weekend to properly explore the shop.
They don’t call this a record show, but a pop-up record mart. Can’t quibble over lingo, anywhere a lot of records are available for sale is a damn fine thing and my hat’s off to the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and Pittsburgh JazzLive for making this part of the weekend’s events.
This Saturday in Countryside, Illinois, it’s the Southwest Chicgo Record and CD show, held at the Holiday Inn Countryside/LaGrange on Joliet Road in Countryside.
I have no experience with this record show, which runs from 10-4, but any record show is worth a look in at least once! If you’re in the area, you could spend Saturday scoring some deals on vinyl and adding another record show to the list…
Admission is $3 and I can’t find word on whether there’s an early bird fee or not but you never know…
Goldmine magazine has a list of record shows coming up that includes a very busy weekend on June 21 and 22, 2014. Goldmine published their list of 2014 record shows back in February, so it’s really important to check the contact info on these shows before you make a special trip to attend.
This looks like a perfect weekend to plan a vinyl buying roadtrip…it’s just a shame that they aren’t all within driving distance of one another.
