In addition to several crates full of Redef releases, new and old, legendary record dealer Gene Brown will be there to help you get that fix. Special thanks to longtime Redef friend Winter Records (pka HPRS) & Salvage Sound who will be on site with more records that you could even imagine from every genre known to man and then some. Lastly, big thanks to Chris Maestro (what a name!) of Bierwax for opening his doors to us.

One day only event. We will be offering discounts on records all day and might even have a handful of out of print and (as yet) unreleased albums available via test pressings. See you Saturday!
