Imagine a bus-driven pub crawl with a traveling band, vinyl instead of drinks and record stores replacing bars as the planned destinations—you now have a pretty good conception of what this event is all about. After the success of the inaugural Record Store Day Crawl last April, the event returns for a second edition.
A coach will escort music lovers to a number of the city's best record stores while Brooklyn psych-rockers Heliotropes provide the entertainment along the way. (The band's new album Over There That Way is out July 15, and you can watch the music video to the newest single below.)
Tickets will run you $59.95, but admission also grants you a bunch of other goodies: discounts at every record store, exclusive signed vinyl and test pressings, a Heliotropes t-shirt, an End Records tote bag, open bar and $1 taco time at Baby's All Right. Phew! So pack your headphones, and get collecting.
