Do you want to get your Record Store Day on? There’s no better place than Hymies
Our building at 3318 East Lake Street has been home to a record store since James “Hymie” Peterson and Kent Hazen first opened shop in 1987. There have been a lot of changes over the years, but it has always lived up to Hymie’s modest goal: “I’m not interested in making a lot of money,” he is remembered saying. “I’m interested in having a good store, a store people like coming to.”
The rumor is they will be selling records for 25 cents and having live music.
Here’s the line up
11:00 Buffalo Moon
12:15 Adam Marshall of the Humbugs
1:30 Stepped Reckonner
3:00 Martin Devaney
4:00 The Twin Cities Ukulele Orchestra
5:15 Fort Road Five
6:15 Jezebel Jones and her Wicked Ways
In between acts we’ll have DJs spinning all sorts of great stuff, including our friend DJ Ohmz. We’re providing a variety of snacks and beverages, and welcome regulars to bring things they’d like to share, too. We’re also planning on letting everyone explore the building a little and see the whole basement and the apartment.
Check them out, it’s the last day before they close for two weeks and open in a new location just 5 blocks East.
