2016 has been a heavy year and we haven’t even gotten through half of it yet. Friday, April 29th is the final Friday of the fourth month of the year. Like every final friday of the month some of my favorite records collectors come together for #nueverecordpotluck! This year seems like it’s going so fast and it keeps getting heavier and heavier. We recently lost an icon, a revolutionary in sound, the purple one, I’m certain we’ll be spending a good while healing, remembering, dancing, celebrating and mourning. Music is medicine.
So thankful for it. This month we’ll be celebrating what heals us in revolutions of nine with Bei Ru and friends. Join the audible potluck, bring nine of your favorite records, sign up and share them! See you on the dancefloor.
