If you haven’t already come by to check out the new space, the last weekend of September is THE time to do it. We’re hosting our first in-store show in the new storefront. Chicago locals GOSH, minimalist dream pop, and Vytyls, atonal IDM, will take the stage from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, 30 September.
This is the first show in a monthly showcase that will feature local and touring D.I.Y. bands. All of the shows are free and all ages.
If the in-store show on Saturday isn’t doable, we’re also hosting an Opening
Sale the entire weekend with used vinyl 20% off and new vinyl 10% off. The Opening Sale will run from from Friday, 29 September to Sunday, 1 October. The last weekend of September is going to be a lively one in the new storefront ! Stop by and discover some new, local music or just pick up some vinyl on the cheap.
So everyone knows Breakers has a pretty nifty collection of previously-owned records – you can find anything from Parliament to Stan Getz to Thin Lizzy. BUT we’ve also got all the new stuff for which you’ve impatiently been counting the days on the calendar :
Check out new releases for July – including Girlpool, Imagine Dragons, Charles Lloyd Quartet, the Sid & Nancy soundtrack “Love Kills,” and Sampha.
And what kind of record store would we be if we didn’t include new releases from local bands ? Come by, chat a bit and pick up your copy of “Errors” by Chicago’s own Absolutely Not. Note : The Melvins double EP, “A Walk with Love and Death,” also released this month, is a worthy contender to be the next addition to your record collection.
The rumors are indeed true. Breakers is moving to a new home, a store front at 2935 N Milwaukee Ave in the Avondale neighborhood. While the Breakers crew is busy gutting and rehabbing our new home, check back here (or better come and visit us in-store !) to see how things are going. Thank you to Robby and the Reggies crew for the past ten years on the second floor of 2105 South State Street. From all of us at Breakers – we’ll miss the shows downstairs vibrating the floors and the TACOS (like really really miss ’em).
