ARC

NYC's ARChive of Contemporary Music will hold their annual Holiday Record & CD Sale from December 13 - 21:

We have lots of LPs that have never been in any of our sales before--huge section of jazz and lots of rock, pop, soul, hip-hop, you name it! Quite possibly we have the most vinyl we've ever had. Prices are generally much less than you will see in local stores or on-line, since we have only a week to move them out.

The ARC sale will also feature books and videos. This sale will have more than 700 books about jazz for sale. Plus books about every topic you can imagine. Videos? We will have VHS and DVDs of all kinds, lots of old movies, some classics and some crazy stuff.

PLUS: There's the ARC Mart, sort of a thrift store within the record sale, that will have kitchen items, clothing, and all sorts of stuff.

If you're an ARC member there's their also-annual cocktail party Thursday, December 11 where you get first dibs on this year's wares.

And as we're in the giving season, you can donate unwanted records and CDs to the ARC. It's tax-deductible and they even come to you.
