MEETUP APP - DOWNLOAD IT NOW!

hey, i just wanted to recommend that you guys download the meetup app for your smart phone.  a couple of us just used it at a recent meetup, and it came in handy, because i could see who had "checked in," and so i knew right away who to expect. also, the app notified me that another member wasn't able to make it.

you can use the app for any meetup, not just the concert meetup, but i will say that it makes it a lot easier to find the group if you get there late, so think about it! you should be able to easily find this app in your android or apple app store.

 

UPCOMING ALBUM RELEASES AND RECORD STORE DAY!

for those of you keeping score at home, there's just 10 days left until RSD, record store day. RSD is an annual event when ye local record shoppes sell limited edition vinyl releases. these releases come form new artists as well as artists from over the past 50 years. there are 7", 12", and whole LP releases, all usually pressed only in small quantities. also, one kinda fun/frustrating thing is that the record stores don't always know what will be shipped to them, so some record stores have some special releases, while others may not.

for those of you that live in the city, there's definitely a few record stores in lakeview, lincoln park, and wicker park that are participating, but you can go here to get the complete list of RSD releases, as well as stores participating in the event!
