Dust & Grooves Sunday Hangout at the Vinyl Library
Sunday, May 25, 2014 3pm – 9pm The Vinyl Library, London, UK
Please join the Dust & Grooves + Vinyl Library crew for a Sunday afternoon of vinyl, drinks, and friends!
Come out and browse the Library’s communal vinyl record collection and Eilon Paz’s new book that pays tribute to the collections around the world. Rotating DJs will grace the decks with all-vinyl sets and a signed copy of Dust & Grooves: Adventures in Record Collecting, due out in Europe on May 20, will take its place among thousands of communal records donated by the public. Free drinks will be provided by Dewar’s. This is an additional London hang to our launch party at the beginning of the weekend on Friday, May 23 (at the Proud Archivist).
Sunday’s address: The Vinyl Library, Unit 1 Foulden Road, Stoke Newington, N16 7UU London
About the Vinyl Library:
Last year, vinyl librarians Sophie Austin and Elly Rendall started a volunteer-run lending library of records in north London, stocked entirely by donations from the public. Now… “…members get to rent out and listen to their choice of thousands of vinyl records at home. They can also have a go on the decks and listening stations and lounge about on the sofas. It’s an open community space and hosts workshops, bespoke music events, as well as an open platform for people to experiment on the decks or piano and share music stories with one another face to face. It’s a Not for Profit so any revenue past running costs goes straight back into the community outreach programmes like free mixing lessons for local young people (with a focus on encouraging more girls!).” –Le Cool You can virtually visit the Library on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
