It's The Dig's Vinyl Dstrict!

In February of this year we were on the road with two great bands, Editors and The Antlers. I thought it would be a cool idea to buy at least one record in every city that we played in.

Our first show was at the Warfield in San Fransisco. We all decided to check out the famous Ameoba Records on Haight St. I picked up The Velvet Underground (self titled), CCR Chronicles Vol. 2, and a Duane Eddy album. I was inspired to get the Duane Eddy album from my uncle who I met on tour for the first time in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

After a long morning of playin old tapes in the garage and singin songs, he scared us all away after he busted through the door with his revolver and said "If you really wanna get serious, this will bust a hole in an engine block!"

Some of the other great records I picked up along the way are 'Tattoo You' by the Stones and 'Hospice' by The Antlers.

I love The Dig's blog posts, keep them coming! I like that they're not listening to generic crap, and sound pretty articulate. Kudos VD!
