Record Raid February 20th at Peoples Health New Orleans Jazz Market

Record Raid Winter 2016

February 20th, 10am-5pm at the Peoples Health New Orleans Jazz Market (1436 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd)

Still recovering from Mardi Gras? How does finding a boatload of records and spinning them all weekend sound to you? The Record Raid is back for a winter show, with 28 vendors and over 40 tables full of vinyl, CDs, cassettes and more. The event is indoors, so rain or shine (forecast says shine), hot or cold (forecast says pleasant)!

Your Guide to Record Store Day 2015 in New Orleans (and more)

This year, Record Store Day is Saturday, April 18th 

Love it or hate it, Record Store Day is significant. Thankfully, there's more to it than pricey limited edition reissues: the record stores themselves have their own twist on it. I'll be making a marathon trip of all the New Orleans area record stores, whether they stock RSD items or not. For a full list of record store day releases, check out the Record Store Day website

Next Record Raid: January 24th at the Old Ironworks

Record Raid Winter 2014

Record Raid is back for our first January show on Saturday the 24th from 10am to 5pm. We're setting up at the Old Ironworks at 612 Piety st. across from Euclid Records in the bywater.

The Record Raid is a pop-up record store comprised of vendors from all over the gulf. This includes ebay sellers, stores, private collectors, and folks just looking to make some space in their house. If you'd like to sell our rates are super cheap to encourage anybody to set up. You can do so here.

Capital City Records opens in Baton Rouge

Are Lagniappe Records and Atomic Pop Shoppe enough to sustain Baton Rouge's want for vinyl? Dumb question, bring on more record stores!

Capital City Record opened up last Friday and I took a little trip to check it out. They've got a lot of shelves to fill out as they grow, it only looked about half-full. So keep in mind that my impressions are based on the sample that was available to me then, and they could change a lot as they fill the rest out. Thankfully, that sample left a good impression

Captain's Vinyl has been around for a year!

Bryan "The Captain" Kavanaugh was once a Record Raid dealer (and still is), then started Captain's Vinyl in the foyer of his apartment, and recently moved to a new storefront over at 637 S Pierce St in Mid-City.

To celebrate a year of sellin' records professionally, this Saturday August 2nd, they're having a sale:

Buy 2 records (over $25) and pick out a third at the price of the cheaper of the two albums.
