Vinyl Revival Celebrates Record Store Day with 

Live Music, Exclusive Releases, Swag and Snacks 

Vinyl Revival, 35-37 N. Lansdowne Avenue, Lansdowne, PA, is proud to be participating in Record Store Day, an international day to celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store, on April 22, 2017.  Vinyl Revival will stock a selection of titles that are Record Store Day exclusive, limited edition and first releases.  As part of the Record Store Day celebration, there will be free in-store performances by Big Terrible, the Funky Rebels, MLC (Mid-Life Crisis), and The Wiretappers, free Record Store Day promotional materials with purchases, plus complimentary light refreshments and drinks during store hours from 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

            In celebration of Record Store Day’s 10th anniversary, Vinyl Revival has programmed a slate of live entertainment during store hours for customers’ shopping enjoyment. A wide variety of genres including singer-songwriter, hard rock, alternative and classic rock covers will be performed by several groups throughout the day.  Musicians include The Wiretappers, a mandolin and guitar trio playing both originals and covers, the acoustic duo MLC playing cover songs from the Lumineers to Rod Stewart,  the Funky Rebels, a newly formed band comprised of musicians  who met at World Cafe Live’s weekly Philly Rising open mic night who will blend the rap, pop punk and singer-songwriter genres, and closing out the day’s events will be  blues-soaked heavy rock by Philadelphia power trio, Big Terrible.  Since their formation in 2006, Big Terrible has been a stand out in the local hard rock/indie scene due to their expert technical skills and good ole-fashioned songwriting.  Their most recent album, Monument was released in March 2015 and is an addition to their impressive collection of releases such as Rotten City in 2013 and Face the Stone in 2009.

Music and merchandise by the performing bands will be available for sale at Vinyl Revival. For more information and the performance schedule, visit http://vinylrevivalrecords.com/.

Record Store Day 2016 Re-Cap

RSD2016flyerWow, we had a GREAT Record Store Day this year!  More and more people are coming to our store and we had a lot of what people were looking to get.  We’re thankful to everyone who came by to support and party with us!   We got lots of good feedback from customers who said they were happy to have a local record store to shop at again.  We’re glad that we can share our love of music and vinyl with other old school record fans as well as the younger collectors who are newly discovering the beauty of the format.

We still have a number of Record Store Day releases in stock and might have the title you’re looking to get so stop by and browse our inventory.  We also have some titles left from last year’s Record Store Day and Black Friday that we have reduced.

Here are some pictures from the day.  Special thanks to Charlie Gracie, Patricia King and Orlando Hadad from Minas for their special appearance on Record Store Day and Mayor Campuzano and Neumann University’s 98.5!

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.”
