Sift and sift and find that record you just have to have.
There's nothing quite like staring a rapidly approaching three-day weekend right in the face. The opportunities are endless. Maybe you'll go out of town or go camping somewhere nearby. Maybe you're planning to spend all weekend at HoCo Fest (or at least Saturday night to see Brian Smith and the Gentlemen Afterdark reunite
and make Tucson music history). Well, not to add to the tough fun-based decisions you're waffling between right now, but consider checking out the Vinyl Swapmeet at The Flycatcher (340 E. Sixth St.) too.
On Sunday, September 6, a handful of local record purveyors will bring crates of vinyl and tapes to the Fourth Avenue venue and set up shop. Included in the day's line-up are Wooden Tooth Records, Baby Gas Mask Records, Toxic Ranch Records, Old Paint and more. DJs Butta Fly and 5,6,7 WAX will be spinning and attendees can indulge in hot dog and drink specials as well.
Sunday's event runs from 2 until 6 p.m., but if you plan on digging for some rarities, you might want to head in early. Plus, then you'll have enough time to run down to Club Congress and check out Mexican Institute of Sound and Sergio Mendoza's Mexrissey
too. That's called a music bang bang, and it's definitely worth doing.
