More bounce to the
ounce and no dearth of vinyl, either, on Sunday, Nov. 14.
By Fred Mills
If anybody out there is in the vicinity of the western end
of North Carolina this weekend, swing by Asheville on Sunday – that’s when our
good friends at indie record shop Harvest Records are putting on the fourth
installment of the Asheville Sound Swap, which is just an alliterative way of
saying there’s going to be a cool record show jam-packed with dealers unloading
albums, 45s, CDs, posters, books, 8-track tapes and random swag. You can bet
that the Southern bureau of Blurt will be there, cash in hand, ready to pounce.
It will be at the Grey Eagle venue starting about 11 am, near
the colorful River Arts District in Asheville, so with good weather in the
forecast, Sunday should turn out to be a fun day as there is also an arts walk
going on in the neighborhood. (There’s another record show about 5 hours away
in Carrboro/Chapel Hill this weekend too – maybe you can make the cross-state
drive and catch both of them.) Even better: the venue has food and drinks available, and DJs will be spinning tunes over the club’s sound system all day long.
As the Harvest folks put it:
“That’s right folks;
it’s back, and will surely be the best one yet! Harvest Records & Tomentosa
Records are proud to present 40 tables of vinyl, vinyl & MORE VINYL (&
some cds too!) for you fiends & freaks out there. Many of the region’s
finest record stores, record dealers & record nerds converge for an all-out
extravaganza of rare vinyl, not-so-rare vinyl, all the missing pieces in your
collection, and all the analog warmth to let you swim in sonic sweetness,
dancing next to your turntable.”
Pretty hard to argue with any of that.
