58 record stores…
In the 1950s and ’60s, classic labels such as Chess Records would distribute their records via a network of hard-traveling reps selling records from the trunks of their cars; a mobile army of rack-jobbers spreading the good word all around the US. In homage to this, and as part of our 10th anniversary celebrations, we went on a road trip that culminated at our sold out anniversary concert. From September 20th to October 1st, we and a videographer road tripped down – and back up – the West Coast, visiting 58 record stores, each one of them bastions of vinyl resistance in a digital world.
