2015 in Review

2015 has been a great year and we have our customers to thank!

The popularity of records continues to grow and in addition to our regulars, we also have new customers stop in all the time.

Many of you attended events here or came in to buy the latest releases and special Record Store Day titles.  Let’s take a look back at some of the fun we had this year!

We screened great indie films with FirstGlance Film Festival and Film Festival Flix and Italian Cinema with Ciao Bella!  Living Italian Style.

We hosted concerts in The Vault featuring original music as well as covers with local musicians Tommy Davis, Third Man In and Electric Fallback. 

We had great new, exclusive, limited edition releases for Record Store Day and Record Store Day Black Friday, new releases from Kurt Vile and Jeff Lynne’s ELO plus hard to find vintage MFSL versions of Dark Side of the Moon and Magical Mystery Tour.

We also had books signings with authors Charlie Gracie, Jim RosinWyatt Doyle, Andrew Biscontini and Richard Adelman.

As we look to 2016, we hope to offer a wider variety of new and vintage vinyl and program more unique events that you can enjoy in Lansdowne!

New in the Neighborhood

Welcome to Vinyl Revival! 

I am so happy to open Vinyl Revival in Lansdowne!  Over the past few months, I’ve received such a warm welcome from the other merchants, people from the community and neighborhood organizations, so thank you!

I am opening Vinyl Revival in Lansdowne because I love the tight-knit neighborhood feel and the friendly faces.  I love that there is a growing arts community, a great farmer’s market,  restaurants, a fantastic music store, a growing business and retail district, and a fabulous historical theater soon to be restored to its former glory.  

Right now, we are in the process of clearing out the space to make way for new paint, cabinetry, theater equipment, and everything else needed to make the store a cool, welcoming and fun place to visit and shop. 

Here’s one of our before pictures. Check back often to see our progress and what we’ll look like “after.”
