Music Underground to Feature Stax of Trax

You don’t have to be an audiophile or a hipster to appreciate the smooth, warm quality of a record. In fact, the Music Underground is inviting anyone and everyone to their record show, Stax of Trax, tomorrow.

“We want to bring the record subculture to the mainstream audience,” Jesse Ruegg, co-owner of The Music Underground and Chronic Town, said.

“I think a lot of people are surprised, like, ‘You can still buy vinyl? You can still buy it in this town?'” he said.

The show will run from 2 to 6 p.m and will feature both LPs and 45s across a number of genres. You can check out the event page here. Music fans will also be able to buy new and used vinyls, CDs and cassettes from Music Underground’s usual collection, as well as turntables and any equipment needed for home hi-fi systems.

Josh Ferko, who sells the records out of Webster’s, will be DJing the show, spinning vinyl.

“He’s like the king of vintage vinyl, he’s got a massive personal collection,” Ruegg said. “But he also knows how to find good vinyl, where to look, what it’s selling for.”

Even if you aren’t looking to buy vintage (or new) vinyl, it should be a good time. Those who attend can also take part in all that Chronic Town has to offer, including hookah, coffee and juice.
