One of our city’s finest record stores (run by two of its nicest guys) is in abit of a financial rough patch. To this, you probably respond: “Who isn’t?!”
But consider that the True Vine is one of a quickly vanishing breed: the highly-curated brick and mortar record store. Jason Willett and Stewart Mostofsky run a timeless institution in a refreshingly old-school manner. Walking through their doors feels like walking into a knowledgeable friend’s house, and that’s a rare thing these days (especially in retail). For better or worse, Spin Magazine recognized True Vine as one of its top 15 indie record stores in America.
Help them pay off some of the lingering bills so they can get back to the business of finding and providing lovingly hand-picked music to your ears, worry-free. They’ve gathered what has already been declared an unfuckwithable bill of veritable local superstars: Matmos, CEX, Dan Higgs, Jana Hunter, Coo Coo Rockin Time, Bill Mace, Golden Birthday and Jefrey Brown.
More goodies from our vaults:
The benefit show kicks off at tonight at 9PM sharp, Floristree in the H&H Building. Tickets are $10, and True Vine will also be selling hand-picked and burned mix CD-Rs for $7 (which are great) and apparel for prices unknown. Buy it all, and show Jason & Stew your love for the True Vine by making sure it weathers this financial shit-storm.
