*4/21/2018 SATURDAY: 9am-8pm RECORD STORE DAY 2018!!
Music! Food! Good Times!

SCHEDULE:
9am:
We Open. Yes, there will be a line and it generally starts an hour or two before we open.
12pm: Members of the Raund Haus collective start their beatmaking live from the BCR dollar bins. We're hoping to set up headphones so you can listen!
3pm: SE WARD performs
4pm: AL RIGGS performs
5pm: RAUND UP: BARGAIN BIN SAMPLE CHALLENGE X! At this point the beatmakers will debut the beats they just created from the dollar bin records! This is the tenth installment of the series, so we thought we'd make it interesting by giving everyone a few hours on the spot as opposed to the usual 48 hours in their labs. It's gonna get creative!
8pm: We close and then go home and sleep a long time.

*Grill fires up at 3:30pm and there will be meat burgers and veggie burgers for all.
*Ponysaurus Brewing Co. will also be on site when the music starts!
