ON RECORD: Grand Opening Party
SAINT PETERSBURG, August 11, 2017 -- St. Pete Records wants to inform you of our official existence in the world. Hi, world. Nice to meet you. We’re a little record store on the edge of the city. Housed on the second floor of Furnish Me Vintage, a historic four-story mid-century modern furniture store in the EDGE District.
St. Pete Records started as a single bin on the first floor, and blossomed into a bona fide mezzanine extravaganza. Collections of vinyl records are sought and bought; records cleaned expertly and priced fairly. St. Pete Records sells jazz records, classic rock records, exotica records. St. Pete Records sells records you’ve loved and hated, in addition to music you once lost and have now found.
Carrying an array of new and vintage vinyl, turntables, receivers, speakers and microphones by Stanton, Cerwin Vega and Neat. SPR is also home to Rick’s Vintage, offering professionally serviced vintage audio gear. Whether you’re buying budgeting to buy that first turntable or are looking to invest that retirement into the highest of fi’s, we’ve got what you’re looking for (or have the number for a guy who does). We’ve also added the vintage clothing boutique by Jenique Hendrix, full of sexy old-school threads for every occasion. And the bawdy folks out there, take a look at our wholesomely salacious archive of Playboy magazines. Nerd out on our arcade games including Pac-Man and Galaga available for play. There’s even vintage blacklight poster section glow-ready for all you groovy kids.
To celebrate, we’re throwing a party...nay, a bacchanal on Saturday, August 26. St. Pete Records has assembled a group of local creative superstars to showcase their talents including DJ 2 Critical, half of [THE] Soft Rock Renegades spinning beats. The Furnish Me Vintage showroom gets haute with a fashion show featuring Jenique Hendrix, By Fidel, and Alessandro Benedict Gabriel. Aerialists Jhenie Rivera and Sabrina Maldonado will perform the elegant acts of gravity defiance. Followed by the four-piece Jazz quartet, Gloria West the Gents. Food and drinks by PopUp Shop+Kitchen and local breweries. Enter our raffle to win giveaways like a Stanton turntable. One-night-only discounts on vinyl, clothing and furniture too.
