Local Businesses helping us out on Record Store Day

Record Store Day isn’t all about special releases. We also like to use the day as an excuse to throw a big party and hang out with everyone that helps make the record store successful. This year is no different.

We’ve teamed up with some local buddies to help us celebrate throughout the day:

Brad Hayden’s BBQ Smoke Shop will be set up out front serving tasty meats for lunch

 Heartbreak Coffee will be serving cold and hot brew and selling small-batch roasted beans starting at 8 a.m. (buy one of our new coffee mugs and your first cup of coffee is on us!)

– Fat Possum Records will be setting up their inaugural “Factory Outlet Tent” where you can score great records at a deep discount starting a 9 a.m. (yup, that’s one hour before we open!)

Last but not least, we’ll be hosting live music from some of Muscle Beach’s top acts all afternoon long (live music schedule here).

 

logoshieldox

Heartbreak Coffee is a small batch, specialty coffee roaster based out of Oxford, MS. Their focus is on the entire coffee process, from seed to cup, ensuring its always an excellent tasting cup of coffee coupled with friendly service.

“What you hold in your hands is a piece of me. I roast all of my coffee beans with pride, care and an open mind. And for as much as I wish you to enjoy your cup of coffee, I equally hope too, that you may find your inspiration in all things bitter and wonderful.” – Gretchen Williams, Heartbreak Coffee.

 

muscle beach

Muscle Beach Records is a independent record label based in Oxford, MS. You can see their releases and listen to their artists here.  We’ve teamed up with the label to release a limited cassette compilation and koozie set just for Record Store Day…check that out here.

 

smoke shop

Brad smokes some of the best chicken, ribs, and brisket around. His food is literally to die for. We’re not even going to eat breakfast on Record Store Day so we can stuff our faces with the good stuff come lunchtime.

 

Muscle Beach RECORD STORE DAY Release & Showcase

The cassette features new artwork by J. Burwell and was mastered by Clay Jones at Pete’s Room in Oxford.

UPDATE: There will be no beer at the event. No alcohol will be allowed on the premises at all. Thanks for understanding. 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Record Store Day is Saturday, April 22nd and as always we’ve got a ton of awesome stuff planned. Check out the facebook event page here. You can also see the official RSD list of titles here. We won’t be stocking everything on the list but we will have a lot of it. We’ll post a list right here one week before RSD with all of the titles we’ll have in stock so you’ll know exactly what to expect. We’re also releasing a new compilation cassette in conjunction with local record label, Muscle Beach. More on that to come…

We’ll open at 10 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. like normal. All RSD titles are first come, first served. There are no pre-orders or holds on RSD titles. 

We’ll be hosting a Muscle Beach showcase throughout the afternoon with live music and exclusive merch (including our joint RSD release!). We’ll also be serving coffee from Heartbreak Coffee, BBQ from Brad’s Smokehouse BBQ Truck, and James from Confit web design will be brewing some beer for the occasion (must be 21 years old to try the beer. Beer is being served by local catering company, Party Waiting to Happen). More info regarding the music schedule to come…

We’re also excited to announce the FAT POSSUM RECORDS Factory Outlet shop.

They’ll be setup in front of the shop all day. More info to come…

We’ve also got a few other tricks up our sleeve…so watch this spot! 

Jake Xerxes Fussell in-store show April 8th

Jake Fussell instore 2017 for web

Preorder a copy of Jake’s new record here.

Our good buddy (and former employee) Jake Xerxes Fussell returns to Oxford on Saturday, April 8th in support of his excellent new record, What in the Natural World, released by Durham, North Carolina label Paradise of Bachelors. Jake will perform in the record stare at 4 p.m. before playing a full set later that night at Proud Larry’s. Nathan Bowles (also a Paradise of Bachelors label-mate with several great records out) will be performing with Jake.

The new record drops on March 31st and we’ll have plenty of copies of it on vinyl and CD. Buy the new record and pick up a copy of Jake’s excellent debut if you haven’t already, then come back to the shop to hear the songs live. We’ll have some free beer for those at least 21 years old.

Fussell has a deep respect and affinity for the Southern folk vernacular, though he also maintains his childlike awe for it. [What in the Natural World] marks a move into more existential questions … vignettes of Southern life, with an open-hearted groove that would please scholars and little kids alike—Fussell’s burly, winking voice is made for storytelling. – NPR Music

A singular combination of pedigree, experience, education, and talent. – The Oxford American

It’s difficult to imagine another contemporary interpreter delivering a tale of desperation and sadness with such tenderness, warmth, and grace. The room he leaves for the song to breathe allows it to flourish into its own fully-formed, nuanced world – one as familiar today as during the time of its origin. Here, Fussell taps into those roots and in turn carries the pathos across an entire century, creating something wholly his own. No small feat and just one of the many exhibits that display a truth as absolute as the suffering in this song: Jake Xerxes Fussell is a national treasure. – Aquarium Drunkard

On Wednesday, March 1st we’ll be celebrating the fifth-year anniversary of the opening of The End of All Music.

It’s just insane to us that it’s already been five years, and what an amazing first five it’s been. We couldn’t have done it without the fine folks in Oxford, Mississippi and our customers from all over. So a huge THANK YOU to all y’all out there buying records and coming through our doors. Here’s to the next five!

To celebrate this milestone we’ll be hosting a record release party and in-store show with Tucson, AZ artist Casey Golden–in conjunction with local record label Muscle Beach. Casey’s debut record is also the first vinyl release on Muscle Beach after a string of excellent cassette releases from the label in 2016. Read more on the label and listen to their releases here. 

We are also planning a joint release with Muscle Beach this year for Record Store Day in April. More info on that to come! 

We’ll have copies of the new vinyl release at the store plus some FREE BEER! Be sure to catch a full set with Casey Golden later that night at Proud Larry’s where he’ll be joined by label mates BONUS. 

We’ve got a lot of stuff planned for March and April including more in-store shows, Record Store Day, Jake Xerxes Fussell’s record release party, Double Decker, and more! So stay tuned!

Casey Gold

Casey Golden’s record offers a space to reflect, ponder, question, as you swim through a murky ocean just off of a Brazilian shoreline, where all the past lives go to tango and drink Tecate. A solo project from former guitarist/vocalist in Union Pacific and current drummer in The Night Collectors.

 

“Your face, your race, the way that you talk
I kiss you, you’re beautiful, I want you to walk

We’ve got five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, what a surprise
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that’s all we’ve got”

-David Bowie Five Years
