Toronto Downtown Record Show

[Elisa F G looks at the upcoming spring edition of the Downtown Record Show in Toronto. I’d be there, but I’ll be on assignment at the Junos next weekend. – AC]

They’re baaaaaaaaaack.

And no, I’m not talking about the boogie men living inside Carol Anne’s television set. I’m talking about your most favourite boogie down tunes, living inside etched plastic, spread out on fifty plus tables, at the Toronto Downtown Record Show.

Get your peruse on, with over 100,000 vinyl records on sale, two rooms, multiple sellers, all sorts of styles, genres, eras, as well as the long-awaited return of the $5 room.

What’s the $5 room? One room. 50 crates. All records. All 5 bucks. If you’re a collector and this paragraph alone has you seething with anticipation, you might want to opt for the $25 9 am early bird admission.

If a music geek died and went to heaven, this is how they’d spend their Sundays. The madness starts at 11 am on Sunday, March 25th, located at the Estonian Hall at 958 Broadview Ave in Toronto. Regular admission is $5.

From rock, jazz, soul, reggae, metal, punk, to hip hop, house, classical, whatever gets your foot tapping, will all be there. From the awesome cheap stuff to the stuff you thought only existed in dreams. Think about the rare finds, think of all the history, all the crazy album art…think about the hair!

Let us know what you think!
