Rad ad promoting the Book!

“The Vinyl District launched in 2007 as an homage to the vinyl medium and Washington, DC’s remaining record stores. In its second year, The Vinyl District (or TVD) partnered with Record Store Day (itself in its second year) as the “official blog” of the event, and with this partnership TVD’s audience became both national and international.”

By Aline Smith:

Photographer Mike Spitz takes us back a few decades when listening to music meant visiting a local record store, flipping through the bins, purchasing a record because of an interesting cover photograph or design, bring home a particular sound and letting the needle hit the vinyl. His new book, The Record Store Book, published by Rare Bird Books, takes us on a vinyl journey visiting the places and people that celebrate records.  The book is enriched by interviews and text by Rebecca Villaneda and it will be sold at Urban Outfitters (US & Europe), bookstores, and select record stores with worldwide distribution. On April 18th, Mike and Rebecca will be signing books (on Record Store Day!) at Jackknife Records (11-1pm) and Record Parlour (2-4pm) in Los Angeles, ending the day with a big party and book signing at the Regent Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
