The Philadelphia Record Exchange hosted a block party celebrating it's 30th anniversary. This Fishtown business is an important source for those seeking most any genre of music on vinyl records. The shop in itself is like a musical walk down memory lane and a reminder of how record album art was at it's pinnacle.
The all day party featured the music of The Strapping Fieldhands, Aye-Aye, Purling Hiss, Monkey 101, Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band, Watery Love, Rosali and Wasted America.
Here are some photos of Dixy Blood and Ben Vaughn performing to a revolving crowd of more than 200 people and a look inside the store.
