Record Store Day – Black Friday 2014!


Mark your calendars for November 28th, 2014! MadCity Music Exchange will once again be participating in Record Store Day – “Black Friday”! We will have copies of the limited Black Friday Record Store Day exclusives available in the store. We will also have the ever popular and semi-annual Collectible Vinyl Sale bin full of rare and hard to find titles on the floor! Many of the titles in the collectible bin have not been seen on our shelves before!

And, we will have another 500+ new used LP on the floor and ready for new homes!

We will be opening early at 9 a.m. to give you more time to shop the Black Friday releases and collectible vinyl.

No long lines or gaudy promotions, just great music with your local independent record store!

Arts Extract Madison Calendar, March 6 through 12

bajasThe week’s best events, from our partners at Arts Extract!

THURSDAY MARCH 6 Bitchin’ Bajas, Watch Out!, Baird, Adcock and Deveraux. Mickey’s Tavern, 10 p.m.

Chicago’s masters of stargazing, flute-tinged electro-psych, Bitchin’ Bajas, have been good to us here in Madison, paying almost quarterly visits for the last couple years. But while we’ve come to rely on the fact that they come around pretty often, this show offers a couple more undeniably rare treats in the form of Chilean fuzz-rockers Watch Out! and a lysergic, improvised team-up from Spires That In The Sunset Rise’s Kathleen Baird, Conjuror’s Ian Adcock, and Samantha Glass’ Beau Devereaux. The Bajas are currently supporting their questionably titled (but killer) Drag City debut ‘Bitchitronics.’

Classixx, Gems. Majestic, 9 p.m.

With a syrupy mix that borrows as much from the maddeningly hooky Valerie-collective school of French house as it does from classic yacht-rock, Los Angeles’ Classixx are a refreshing addition to mainstream dance music, even if they tend to err on the side of instant gratification. The duo are currently touring behind last year’s luxuriously catchy full-length ‘Hanging Gardens’

Thanks especially to all the bands and buskers who played here: The New Years Gang, Little Legend, Phil Gnarly, Rodeo Bums, Tom Teslik, Sammy V, and Michael Gruber.

Also, thanks to the local arts podcast Arts Extract for setting up all the great live music! If you need to know what’s cool and happening in town, they are the best! And, thanks to Bandung for being such great neighbors, hosting our bands and celebrating with us. And to Ground Zero Coffee, Glass Nickel Pizza, the Barrymore Theatre, and True Endeavors!
