Theme Song Night to be held Wednesday, Oct. 28, at the Modern Hotel and Bar
The Vinyl Preservation Society of Idaho will hold its October meeting from 7 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28, at the Modern Hotel and Bar, 1314 Grove St. in Downtown Boise’s Linen District. The meeting is free and open to the public (21 and older please). Bring your records!
The theme for the evening is Theme Song Night. In addition to bringing your favorite TV and movie themes, members and guests are asked to select a song to spin that would be your personal theme song. Like our popular Show and Tell Night, you are encouraged to grab the mic while you’re behind the VPS hi-fi and tell a story about “your” theme song and how it plays a part in the movie of your life.
The October meeting also is an opportunity to sign up to volunteer for the second annual Boise Record Show and Swap, to be held Sunday, Nov. 22, at the Linen Building. We need volunteers before, during and after the show, as well as for the second anniversary party the night before. We will have sign-up sheets at the meeting. Please consider volunteering – last year’s inaugural record show would not have been successful without the help of our members and friends.
We also have a limited number of dealer tables left for the show. If you’re interested in a table or two, talk to us at the October meeting.
7 to 7:30 p.m. – Social Gathering
7:30 to 10 p.m. – Open Play: Theme Song Night
The Vinyl Preservation Society of Idaho is an independent social recreation enterprise dedicated to communal listening enjoyment.
VPS Idaho has three main charters: preservation, education and entertainment. By actively promoting the preservation of the vinyl record as a medium, VPS Idaho hopes to play a small part in ensuring the enduring presence and future vitality of this unique and culturally rich musical format. In its educational efforts, VPS Idaho hopes to increase the knowledge of group members as well as the general public in all matters related to analog musicology, from record production techniques and the performance and maintenance of associated electronics to the history of vinyl in Idaho and beyond. In pursuing its entertainment goals, VPS Idaho simply hopes to help existing vinyl aficionados discover and enjoy more music while cultivating a wider community of new listeners; in short, to keep the records spinning and the music alive.
Monthly meetings (held every fourth Wednesday of the month) include guest speakers and DJs, opportunities to buy, sell and trade vinyl and, of course, a chance to share some of your favorite albums with fellow music geeks and vinyl junkies. Membership is free and open to anyone who listens to music of any kind. While members and guests don’t have to own any vinyl, it is assumed they at least have an interest in and appreciation for vinyl as ONLY VINYL RECORDS WILL BE PLAYED AT MEETINGS.
