Vinyl is forever.
At least, that’s how apparently a whole lot of people feel. For some reason, be it the high sound quality or just the joy of record collecting, vinyl is one of the only things in the music industry that will just not go away. Noise Pop and Boing Boing are celebrating the livelihood of vinyl on Friday, July 18 at the Oakland Museum of California with a round table panel discussion with Boing Boing editor David Pescovitz, Nick Harmer of Death Cab for Cutie, Winston Smith, legendary punk artist for artists like the Dead Kennedys and Green Day, and iconic album cover designer Lawrence Azerrad.
The event will take place from 7-8:30 at the museum, at a special bar in the Vinyl exhibit (with drinks for sale) as part of their Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records exhibition.
The best part? It’s not going to cost you much to attend. From 5-9 on Friday nights, admission to the museum is half-price for adults, and free for ages 18 and under. Get there early to get a good seat.
