The Scenics are an old-fashioned bunch (old actually), so we're all turned on by the prospect of an actual record store with tangible, physical product. In the past we've been motivated to travel far afield to get our hands on such matter as cds and vinyl. This Friday - and all weekend long - if you must participate in the gross American tradition of frenzied shopping following your day of gluttonous eating, we suggest including Redscroll Records' 4th Annual Blackout at Sunrise Sale in your itinerary. Everything will be marked down for the occasion and they are offering further enticements on Friday like live DJs (DJ Lokash and Anthony from The Needle Drop) and hangout room, homemade muffins in tempting sounding seasonal flavors (Sweet potato! Pumpkin! Etc.!) and coffee. We might be in it for the muffins alone, honestly. The action begins Friday at 6 a.m., which is mental, but whatever lifts up your skirt.
