• UO Happenings: Local Vinyl Swaps

    We love records! The way they sound, the way they look, that good ol' nostalgic feeling they give us... literally everything. In honor of music month here at UO, we are all about embracing vinyl and growing our IRL music collections with new and used vinyl. One of the ways we're making this happen is by getting behind the idea of record swaps, or gathering up a bunch of friends and swapping out all our underused, under-appreciated vinyl for something new-old to add to our collections. (You know the old saying: one man's trash is another man's treasure.)

    For our friends in Quebec looking to join in on the record swapping fun, make sure to hit up our UO record swap on April 25th. Along with the the opportunity to find some new-old vinyls to love, there will also be 20% off new vinyl, a DJ to jam to, and snacks.

    To keep our love of vinyl alive on the other side of the continent, we'll also be pairing up with two of our favorite music powerhouses, Amoeba Music and Org Music, on April 18 to throw a music-centric event in Los Angeles at Space 15 Twenty (1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd.). The event starts at 2pm with a TV On The Radio art party (including a DJ set from Dave Sitek), then moves on to free drinks from 4pm-8pm with performances from Mike Watt and the Secondmen and E V Kain. Basically, it's our way to say "thank you" to the community for being so awesome. And make sure to check out Amoeba Music throughout the day (they're right around the corner at 6400 Sunset Blvd.) for more music and records.
