RECORD STORE DAY Stock Update

RECORD STORE DAY TOMORROW! In accordance with that I’ve broken the update into 2 sections.
The first is all the RSD items and then the second is the newest of regular stock.

(If you don’t see it, I’m sorry, we didn’t get it for one reason or another. The Hold Steady we didn’t get because there are over 1000 stores participating and only 700 of those were made in total. Ouch!)

Celebrity Sighting

Taking stock of people we’ve sold to through Redscroll brings a small impressive list to mind (Henry Rollins, David Byrne and very recently, Matt Groening). Woah, right? Seriously.

None of those people have been seen on video inside the store, unfortunately. Let’s hope this video I’m about to post of a small local celebrity starts the trend.

Anthony hosts the Needle Drop website as well as the Needle Drop radio show on WNPR (which is also syndicated on my home station of WESU).

On this note, you might have noticed (this week in particular) that I’m trying to add a bit more content (rather than just stock updates) to our blog. Let me know your thoughts on that. Would you like to see more videos? Would you like to see more local celebrity sightings? I could just post my face on here everyday (joke). Band interviews? In any event, look forward to more and more content coming via this page. We’ve also got some bigger developments (related) coming down the line so stay tuned (refresh often).

RSD NOTE: I will be posting a stock update later that will include the Record Store Day items that we will have available tomorrow (when we open at 10AM).

Anecdotal Evidence Of Life On Earth

Tonight at Redscroll we have a bunch of people speaking. Some will read their poems. Some will tell stories. A few of them have worked on some projects done by Hot Air Press.

What is Hot Air Press? A publishing company? Yea, I mean sort of. They’ve definitely put a bunch of collected works of poetry and such (there is one particular that definitely qualifies as “such”). A record label? Maybe, yea. They have put out a handful of releases on wax. Cold Snap, Ipsissimus, Mammoth Hunter, & Florida=Death have all released music with them. An eclectic mix, for sure (weird hardcore, black metal, instrumental denseness, and improv-friendly hip-hop sensibilities all have found their way to the Hot Air Press).

What it really comes down to is that it’s a group of friends in a small state in the north-east trying to make the most out of what is directly around them. Connecticut based bands, artists, poets and people who just generally need a creative outlet can look to Hot Air Press. Come by the shop tonight and meet these dudes. Hear them speak… along with a bunch of other friendly types.

A Couple Movies About Record Stores

Time is flying by. Soon after opening shop in April 2007 a local independent (then student) film-maker, Brendan Toller, came by the shop and did some filming (among many many other shops and private collector locations) for a movie that we did the CT Premiere screening for on July 13, 2008. This coming Record Store Day sees a limited release of this movie, I NEED THAT RECORD! We will have some copies, for sure. It will have a full wider release in July. Why wait? Check this trailer:

I Need That Record! Trailer from Brendan Toller on Vimeo.

There is also a new record-angle doc I’m excited to check out (whenever that may be done and available for viewing). It seems to feature some prominent collectors and goes beyond just the listening audience to talk about the aesthetics of what makes records great (Blue Note album covers!). It also reminded me that I need to go down to Pittsburgh soon (summer time) to do some serious record digging.

Lest you forget, we’re into day 2 of our sale. We have events going from Thursday – Sunday. Definitely check all the info out here: http://redscrollrecords.blogspot.com/2010/03/april-3-year-anniversary-sale-record.html
