If you're anything like us, you probably didn't find everything you wanted on Record Store Day last weekend. Alternately, perhaps you did find everything you wanted but don't subscribe to the idea of record-shopping as an annual one-day event. Either way, you should consider attending The Gigantic St. Louis DJ Album Sale for Charity this Saturday, April 26.
From 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., numerous St. Louis-area DJs and record collectors will be selling off chunks of their personal collections to benefit Caritas Connections, Inc., a local charity that collects food, clothing and other items to benefit the needy and homeless. There will be thousands of LPs, CDs and 7"s for sale, with appearances from on-air personalities from KDHX (88.1 FM), KSHE (94.7 FM), and other local radio stations. "You may have to wait in line outside to get in, but we'll make the wait fun with prizes, drinks and sidewalk sale items," the organizers promise.
The two locations are 3137 Locust (one block west of the Fountain on Locust) and 3504 Magnolia Avenue (KDHX's old headquarters). Admission is free, but you can pay $10 for early entry to 3137 Locust between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. The record vendors accept cash only. Don't forget to bring change for parking. See you there!
