Hymie's Records was named Best Record Store Day Location last year for good reason. For the fifth year, the pride of Longfellow and beyond will host another huge block party on April 18 with a slate of 14 acts planned for the indoor and outdoor stages.
For the uninitiated, the Hymie's event closes off 39th Avenue at Lake Street so that the browsing for vinyl and merriment can spill out onto the street.
Expect limited-edition Record Store Day releases, specials, artist booths, and food and beverages courtesy of Peppers & Fries.
The Hymie's Record Store Day Block Party 2015 Lineup:
Nato Coles & the Blue Diamond Band
The Dumpy Jug Bumpers (album release show!)
Brian Laidlaw & the Family Trade
Mike Munson & Mikkel Beckmen
Wizards Are Real
The festivities begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 18. Rain or shine. Free!
