21 Grand Record Swap on December 4th!!!
A couple of weeks ago, I stopped in to the 21 Grand Record Swap/Benefit on a Saturday afternoon. Even though I got there kinda late and there were only about 10-12 vendors, I still came home with a pretty heft stack of records and even a DVD all for great prices! To my happy surprise, they are doing another one and this time, I'm renting a table! I'll have lots of 45s, a stack of LPs, maybe a DVD or 2 and possibly even a little digital sampler and another piece of equipment too! I've got a Disk-Go (vintage 45 carrying/storage case) too! Anyway, what matters is that you come down to support your local businesses, i.e. the 21 Grand Gallery, as well as your local music folks who will be participating! Hope to see ya there!!!

so many people were pleased with the last swap (and are on this facebook event) that I decided to just update this one to announce part 2 on Dec 4th here!
21 Grand has not been able to have shows, but they need help to pay the rent. We've set up a benefit record swap/record fair with some really out there music collectors to bring you a one-of-a-kind marketplace for rarities, obscurities, and total head scratchers in the vein of ...what you've come to expect from 21 Grand's programming! As well as new releases direct from local labels.
***$2 donation entry fee.***
Saturday Dec 4th!
you can always donate more if you like.
11 am - 5 pm
416 25th St, Oakland

We're liquidating our vinyl! And we've got hundreds of titles in our collection. To give you a clue, here's a brief summary ---
Feeling New Romantic? Get ready to feel some emotions! A mixture of 80's synth pop oldie but goodies, like Berlin, Bronski Beat, Howard Jones, Naked Eyes, and Re-Flex.
Fun Soul, disco, and eighties softpop, think Donna Summer and walking in a white suit on the beach!
Here's a taste: Janet Jackson - Control; Shalimar; TK Disco.
A respectable collection of acid house and UK dance from former collector. Wicked tons of drum n bass n oldscore 'ardcore! These tunes are mental! We're ain't taking the piss, mate -- Altern 8 - Infilitrat- america; Ming and FS - Freak; Something J / DJ Maxximus: Mercedes Bentley vs Versace Armani;
various Schematic and Warp Records
Also, all of my old arty-farty comics that are getting me down, including some Ivan Brunetti material, racy hot zines (sexy), the Comics Journal that interviews Jim Woodring, and Sandman! Sandman! Sandman!!!
