Call of the Wild
Not too long ago Brooklyn vinyl slinger Record Grouch moved locations from Metropolitan Ave to Greenpoint (986 Manhattan right by the Greepoint Ave stop on the G) and though the new spot has been open for a while, the store is just now throwing a "BETTER LATE THAN NEVER" RECORD GROUCH OPENING PARTY!"
The party goes down Saturday, August 25 starting at noon and there will be DJs all day, with Brooklyn's own Call of the Wild playing an in-store at 7:30 PM. It's a good excuse as any to go check out one of the better-curated vinyl stores in our city. DJ line-up is below along with a flyer for the event.
The Record Grouch in-store is one of a few upcoming shows for Call of the Wild whose new album Leave Your Leather On is a real corker and came out this week on Kemado. (Stream it below via Spotify.) The band will also play Shea Stadium on September 1 with Endless Boogie, Ed Schrader`s Music Beat, and Liquor Store; and Death by Audio on September 5 with The Manateees.
A list of all tour dates, streams and the Record Grouch flyer are below, along with live footage of Call of the Wild on a Brooklyn rooftop.
