That's Not For Sale

Final Parking Lot Sale @ Rhino Records January 21 & 22nd, 10am – 4pm

Few people enjoy the smell of aged cat piss and general neglect like a good vinyl junkie. In their heart of hearts they know that in some Grandma’s basement lies a treasure trove of Butcher covers and lost reel-to-reels waiting to be sold for five bucks to a greedy, over-educated music fan with an unapologetically huge grin. Expect those geeks to be out in full-force on the Westside this Saturday in anticipation of Rhino’s last hurrah. After 35 years of business, much like every other record store not operating out of a barn on Sunset, they are shutting their doors. For years Rhino had one of the best parking lot sales ever. Not just forty ELO records or half of “Frampton Comes Alive” but shit you can listen to: the first Velvet Underground, “Beggars Banquet”, and “Let’s Get Small” were all a dollar each. Not a single scratch! Come on out for the vinyl blow-out of all blow-outs. The Rhino has finally been slain. Maybe they’ll mount the horn in Amoeba. (SOC)
