RECORDHEADZ HOST WEEKEND RECORD STORE DAY SALE AND DJ EVENT!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RECORDHEADZ HOST WEEKEND RECORD STORE DAY SALE AND DJ EVENT! APRIL 18 - 19
Local record collectors to host a National Record Store Day celebration on Capitol Hill at the Electric Tea Garden (Gallery ~ Tea Lounge). There will be 1000’s of vinyl records for sale as well as local DJ’s of all levels and styles performing at this “open tables” event. Proceeds of vinyl records sold will benefit local youth music projects.
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 as a way to link independent record stores, the artists they represent and the communities they serve. Record Store Day offers exclusive vinyl releases and social events to help invite customers to come celebrate the fun to be found in independent record stores and with listening to music in the vinyl format.
Recordheadz, a project started in March of 2009 by record collectors Patrick Mouton and Shomari Shanks (DJ Shonuph) which takes donated or unwanted records from within the community—saving them from being tossed into landfill. These records are cleans and sold at various sites and a portion of the proceeds are gifted to community organizations and individuals that work with youth on music related projects. Recordheadz also maintains a blog: Recordheadz.com which features reviews of vinyl records, record related events, and information about its community projects.
Electric Tea Garden has been a site for the previous Recordheadz vinyl sales and will host a mini record store within its gallery space. Recordheadz is inviting the community to come join them at the recently opened tea lounge / event space, to celebrate Record Store Day with a record sale and free DJ event! Come enjoy Electric Tea Garden’s selection of organic teas, locally roasted coffee and shop a huge collection of vinyl records being sold to support Recordheadz community music events.
Open Tables: We are also inviting DJ’s of all levels and styles to come down and spin an “open table” set. Turntables and mixer will be set up on site. Just bring headphones, needles, your own vinyl records and of course lots of friends to watch you spin.
