We’re only 22 short days away from Record Store Day 2016! Vinyl Revival will stock a selection of titles that are Record Store Day exclusive, limited edition and first releases and we’ll have a couple fun events during the day on April 16th.
11 a.m. – 12 p.m. – Meet Orlando Haddad and Patricia King from the Brazilian jazz group Minas and get advance and signed copies of their first album, Num Dia Azul, which will be re-released at their World Café Live concert on April 16th at 8 p.m.
12 p.m. – 2 p.m. – Meet Philly’s first rock and roll star, Charlie Gracie, as he signs copies of his new book, Rock & Roll’s Hidden Giant: The Story of Rock Pioneer Charlie Gracie.
Gracie’s book and Minas’ album will be available for sale at their individual events.
As part of the Record Store Day celebration, light refreshments and drinks will be provided during store hours from 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m and an assortment of Record Store Day promotional items will also be given out for free with each purchase while supplies last.
Hope you can celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store with us!
Woo hoo! We are just one month away from Record Store Day. We are super excited about it and hope you are too!
Last week, the folks at Record Store Day announced “the list” of titles that will be available on April 16th. You can take a look at the entire list here. There are about 350 titles. We want to please as many customers as possible, so, as Dawes would say, we ordered “a little bit of everything.” Many releases are limited editions and there are a lot of record stores participating in this special day so we may not get everything we ordered.
We hope that you’ll stop in our store on April 16th beginning at 10 a.m. to helps us celebrate independent record stores. We are planning a few events including a Vinyl and CD signing with Brazilian jazz group, Minas, a book signing with rock and roll pioneer Charlie Gracie, with more events to be announced. We’ll have complimentary light refreshments and beer and wine all day. Check our Facebook page for event details as we’ll be adding more to it as we confirm things. #RSD16

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.”
