Here at THE VINYL DISTRICTwe're good consumers. All Mp3's are posted to promote and give exposure to the music and are linked for a limited time. Please download to preview, then head promptly to your local vinyl vendor (or - OK, CD store too) and fork over your hard earned cash. You'll appreciate the piece of mind.

On Thursday, September 24th, 2009, a crowd of people gathered with boomboxes in Dupont Circle in Washington, DC to partake in Bluebrain's composition, Cakeblood. The duo composed the 36-minute piece and mixed down each track to a separate cassette to be distributed amongst the participants.
As a prelude to the next installment of Story/Stereo, starting tomorrow, Bluebrain sets its sights on ...The Vinyl District.
Allow me to offer a brief apology to DC’s independent record shops: I haven’t graced your doorways in a while. I’m ashamed and I apologize.
Oh, it’s not for not wanting to, or should I say needing to. It’s a balm to my psyche to be thumbing through your stacks of sheathed LPs.
It’s that, well...as we’ve been planning the 3rd installment of The Washington DC Record Fair this coming Sunday at Comet Ping Pong, I’ve felt the need to keep my wallet close by my side. I mean, I know what we have planned and the expectations for my bank account are grand, indeed.
So, Red Onion, Som, Smash, Crooked Beat...I love you – I really do. But I’ll be speed dating with 25 vendors from all across the East Coast on Sunday.
Like the dirty, filthy, vinyl whore that I am.
In the meantime, I’m looking for a cheap hookup with these on vinyl. Show me the goods.
