TOP SCORE Record Show
April 29 • 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm• Free
Record Store Day may have passed, but Top Score Record Showis the next best thing. The locally organized event will feature 30 vendors selling vinyl records, cassettes, 8-tracks and CDs. In other words, it’s heaven for audiophiles. André Sirois, known as DJ food stamp, is the co-director of the show. He says attendees will find vinyl from a diversity of genres — folk, funk, rap, rock, classic rock and jazz. That means there will be a lot of records to go through. But that’s all a part of the fun. “It’s a total hunt,” he says. “When you go to an event like this and you find something, there’s a feeling that you get.” He adds that the price of records will range from $1 to $50, but sometimes it’s possible to find rare collectables priced lower than they would be in a record store. Besides being a possible goldmine for someone looking for vinyl, the event is a fundraiser for Maude Kerns Art Center. Whenever someone buys a shirt, tote or vinyl sticker, the proceeds will go toward the art center. Michael Fisher, interim executive director at Maude Kerns, says the proceeds from the event — which happens twice a year — helps local youth take art classes at the center.
The Top Score Record Show, presented by TJ’s and Stem Holdings, is noon-5 pm Sunday, April 29. The event is located at Level Up Arcade, located at 1290 Oak St. and is FREE. — Henry Houston
