If you haven’t been to an independently owned record store in a while, this weekend is a good time to go back. Several local shops will celebrate National Record Store Day on Saturday, including CD Source, Good Records and Movie Trading Company in Dallas; CD Warehouse and Eargazum in Arlington; Doc’s Records and Vintage in Hurst; and Forever Young Records in Grand Prairie. On Friday morning, I’ll have a story airing on KERA about Good Records, and of course, you’ll be able to read it/hear it here on Art&Seek then. Good Records and Forever Young will also be hosting a day’s worth of concerts on Saturday. The lineups look like this:

Forever Young

11:30 a.m. – 12:55 p.m.: Melvin & Andre (Jazz)

1 – 2:25 p.m.: My Brave Love (Soft Rock)

2:30 – 3:55 p.m.: Tamara Peterson (Blues)

4 – 5:25 p.m.: Vernon Garrett (Southern Soul)

5:30 – 6:25 p.m.: Asleep At The Wheel (Country)

7-8:25 p.m.: Moot Davis (Country)

8:30 – 9:55 p.m.: DJ Bones (Rap/Hip Hop)

Good Records

Good Records isn’t the only one celebrating a birthday this weekend. Bill’s Records and Tapes namesake Bill Wisener turns 65. And for that milestone, he’s taking two days to party. Friday will feature music from noon to 8, with free burgers for lunch and tacos for dinner. On Saturday, there’s more music from 1-6:30 p.m. Check out the poster below for full details:

  • Part of the art revolution and it’s back to basics direction is to dump the usual concert halls for more immediate, more novel, and less corporate, places to play. I salute the store concerts as one alternate option to hear music.
    We can see the music industry shifting through some innovative changes – look for the same in the art gallery system, theater system, and movie house system. Expect the new versions to be more independent, novel, and unexpected.
