Small businesses don’t often last long enough to celebrate 40 years in business. Especially record stores. But Reno’s Recycled Records is celebrating four decades in business this Friday with a show at Jub Jub’s Thirst Parlor.
“If you are currently a good customer of ours, or were a really good customer in the past–and we know who you are–make it down to the store to get your golden ticket. This will allow you early entry to the show at 7 p.m. to enjoy a free glass of ‘This beer doesn’t suck’ courtesy of our friends at Great Basin Brewing Company,” announced Recycled’s owner Paul Doege. “Your golden ticket’s number enters you in a drawing that will start at 7:30 and go until 7:50 or so, with prizes provided by Recycled and other Midtown merchants.
Stick around because ’80s pop / new wave band The Alarm will be performing with 7 Seconds’ Kevin Seconds opening the show.
Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve is scheduled to issue a proclamation making the day “Recycled Records Day.”
“At 8 p.m. the doors open for any and all people who want to attend the show,” Doege said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a customer or not, Kevin Seconds should go on around 8:15, followed by The Alarm around 9:00-9:15 and finishing by 11:00.”
The store is also hosting live music all day on October 27 with 1,200 fresh LPs added to its stock.
Congrats to all at Recycled. See you at the show.
