Music lovers and collectors will be in musical heaven this Saturday when the largest pop-up vinyl record store in Victoria opens for one day.
Vinyl Supernova organizer Ryan Wugalter says vinyl record collecting has become even more widespread recently, with many young people discovering it for the first time.
“I’ve always been a collector of music ever since I was a teenager,” says Wugalter, now 36. “There is just so much out there. You think you know about your favourite kind of music, but there’s always going to be a whole other side to it that you have no idea about. It’ll just take that one obscure piece of vinyl to open a whole new door into a whole new genre.”
At the Vinyl Supernova, there will be 40 vendors selling various records, CDs and more.
“People are going to be buying and selling records and talking music,” says Wugalter. “It’s gonna be the best record store in town for one day only.”
Vinyl Supernova will be on Oct. 25 at the Fernwood Community Centre at 1240 Gladstone Ave. from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The entrance is around the back and admission is $2. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-580-9260 for more information.
