We are once again partnering with Counterweight Brewery for a second Record Festival in Hamden! It will be on May 19th from 10AM-4PM and will be FREE ENTRY for all! All ages welcome (of course you must be over 21 to consume alcohol).
☠ Vendors from all over the North East!
☠ Food Truck
Details on all those features will be revealed closer to the festival. Stay tuned and follow us on social media @redscroll (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter).
We thought it might be nice to go over some of the dealers that you might encounter during our upcoming record festival!
This won’t be in any particular order – not even alphabetical and if anything changes before the fair I might update it too so feel free to refer back to it.
As happens with organizing these types of things we do get drop outs and we may have some empty space for those who might still want to reserve a table. If that’s you you can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the shop and ask for Rick or Josh at 203 265 7013.
Redscroll Records – That’s us! You probably know us and we hope you have some love for us. We’ll be bringing some recent used acquisitions and some nice stuff that you might otherwise find used in the store. We’re not planning on bringing any new stock to this one – our store will be open for that of course. Continue reading May 12 Record Fest Dealers!→
Hey all ! We’ve got an event coming up fast in just a few Saturdays! If you’ve been to the store or follow us on social media or if you’ve seen flyers out in the wild you might already know. We’re holding a record festival with our friends over at Counterweight Brewery in Hamden!
The record festival starts at 10AM. It is free entry. There is no early admission. We have dealers coming in from all over the north east.
Counterweight is coordinating to bring in a food truck so there will be sustenance as well.
Entertainment will begin at noon! We have some of the finest selectors in the area and a few of the finest musical acts.
WFMU was named “Best Radio Station in the Country” by Rolling Stone magazine for four consecutive years.Some fans of the station include: Velvet Underground founder Lou Reed, The Simpsons creator Matt Groening, filmmaker Jim Jarmusch and playwright Eric Bogosian, Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum, Kurt Cobain, Led Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant, Sonic Youth guitarists Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore, and many more.
The station also helps out the community and fellow radio stations.WFMUbegan voluntarily hosting the webcast of legendary New Orleans jazz music station, WWOZ, when its studio and transmitter were destroyed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.WFMU took donations for the WWOZ and raised over $70,000.
In the destruction of Hurricane Sandy WFMU was hit pretty hard.They lost a lot of equipment and had to cancel their annual record fair.The fair is one of their major sources of funding. In effort to help out the station a record swap is being held (organized by our friend, Malcolm Tent of Trash American Style):
