Record Store Day Spins Through NOLA This Weekend


This Saturday (4.22), the 2017 Record Store Day will take place at vinyl outfitters across the nation. The 10th annual celebration of indie record stores toasts audiophiles, music makers, the vinyl devout — and, of course, the record stores that make it all possible. Record Store Day brings plenty of new and special edition releases nationwide. The day also provides ample reason to celebrate the local, independent shops that keep the music available. 


Broadway Hustle: Robbery at The Mushroom Caught on Video


Video of last week's robbery at The Mushroom emerged on Tuesday. Unlike the cross-dressed chaos of last year's stickup at the Tulane-area record store and emporium in the 1000 block of Broadway, this job was a fairly mellow affair. About 11:30 p.m., a man with a rag over part of his face and a gun tucked into his waistband walked in to the store and told a female clerk to hand over money.


Cross-Dressing Crook Collared After Mushroom Heist, Lookout Still on the Loose


Dressing as a woman didn't help one of the men who robbed one of Tulane's favorite record stores. One half of the duo who allegedly robbed The Mushroom over the weekend was arrested today, according to police. Adonus Harris, 25, was picked up by the NOPD Violent Offenders Squad today after being pegged as a suspect, according to a statement from the Department's Second District. Harris, clad in a wig and black dress, entered The Mushroom in the 1000 block of Broadway about 10 p.m. Friday, and forced the clerk to open the shop's safe.


Crossdressing Crook Robs The Mushroom


For years, the Mushroom has been selling records and water pipes “for tobacco use only,” but apparently, free stickers with purchase were not enough for one cross-dressing crook and his accomplice. On Friday night, two men (one of them, 6’ in drag) robbed the popular Tulane area record store and head shop.


Local Vinyl Heads Celebrate Record Store Day Saturday


In addition to being the day before Earth Day, Election Day and, of course, Darwin Day, tomorrow is also Record Store Day. With New Orleans certified clinical obsession with old music, we've got a few outlets around town. The biggest bash is going down at one of the world's best (BBC's words), Bywater's Euclid Records. In addition to featuring hundreds of the Day's limited edition releases, Euclid will also host some live music so you can bypass some of the pops and clicks.
