The ARChive of Contemporary Music’s annual Holiday Record & CD Sale starts soon and is two weeks this year
NYC's ARChive of Contemporary Music will hold its annual Holiday Record & CD Sale in the ARC offices in TriBeCa from December 5 - December 20 which happens daily from 11 AM - 6 PM. ARC says its their biggest holiday sale ever (and an extra week long because of it), with over 50,000 items for sale, including:
WINTER specials - The most mint and sealed LPs we've ever offered. Fab group of Punk singles.
PLUS - what? Classical 45s? Yes, and more. Incredible selection of jazz CDs • original vintage '60s psychedelic posters from the Grande Ballroom in Detroit • RARE Fillmore East programs • picture discs • turntables + audio equipment • vintage rock + music magazines • shelves of amazing jazz books • most classical LPs are 2 for $1 • DVDs + VHS (and maybe some LaserDiscs too)
20,000 CDs this year • MANY Out-of-Print! Hundreds @ 2 for $1.00
Mostly pop + rock recordings.
For those who aren't into buying records and CDs there will also be ARC's "Astroturf Yard Say" featuring vintage kitchen wares and clothing. As always, your first shot at the loot will be the Cocktail Party on December 3 featuring complimentary Two Boots Pizza and beverages from City Winery. You need to be an ARC Member to attend which you can do for as little as $50. It's tax deductible... as is donating records and CDs to ARC. They'll even come to you and pick them up.
