Analog: After Dark

It’s back! Analog Pop Up Vinyl Shop is on Saturday, November 18th from 6:30-11:00 pm at the River Market in New West!
Record labels, collectors, and vinyl lovers from across Metro Vancouver will gather in our rad city for an evening of music, beer, food, and of course crate digging.
We first launched Analog with our friends from the Arts Council of New West in the fall of 2016. This 3rd “After Dark” Volume will take place in the Food Hall at River Market, 810 Quayside Drive. Easy access from New West Skytrain Station.
Our last event was a huge success and we’ve managed to build a community of vinyl enthusiasts eager to support local labels, shops and collectors. The vibe in the spring was electric and people loved spending an afternoon browsing for records, while also enjoying some amazing music, good food and beer. I think you’re definitely going to like what we’re doing with the “after dark” concept.
Adding to the evening of vinyl shopping and sipping beer, the Arts Council of New West is collaborating with local electronic music outfit Social Medium to program a lineup of DJs playing a range of hip-hop and electro through to house and techno with live video mixing and visuals from local artist and DJ Mutes Ito.
In addition to popular returning vendors Scrape Records, Music Madhouse & Northern Electric are a handful of collectors, new recruits Highlife Records, and internationally recognized electronic music labels Hybridity Music, Pacific Rhythm and Mood Hut.
Also new for this event is a limited edition beer we’ll be launching called High Fidelity!

Analog: Pop Up Vinyl Shop Returns

Analog: Pop Up Vinyl Shop returns on Record Store Day!

It’s back! On Saturday, April 22nd from 2-5pm, indie and electronic record labels from across Metro Vancouver will descend upon New Westminster for a day of live music, beer, food and of course crate digging!

We are super pumped about bringing Analog back with our friends at The Arts Council and after getting volume one under our belt we know what needs to be done to make volume two even more successful.

First off, we’re changing the venue. Since Analog Vol 1.0, Steel & Oak has increased production capability which means the brewery isn’t as open as it once was. It’d be a real squeeze and the likelihood of someone knocking off a tri-clamp, causing beer to pour out at 30 PSI injuring the DJ is high.

So we’ll be popping up at 52 Sixth Street in New Westminster. The rad thing about this venue is that not only is it way closer to the New West Skytrain Station but it’s also surrounded by some awesome businesses including Brick & Mortar, Mila + Paige, Good Omen, as well as Gemini Rising Vintage.

Joining us this year will be indie labels Northern Electric, Scrape, and File Under: Music. New for this volume will be some of the region’s electronic music labels including; Pacific Rhythm, Normals Welcome, Heart to Heart and Hybridity Records. Music Madhouse Records will also be on hand for those in the mood for some classic releases or a rare press or two.

An afternoon of vinyl shopping and sipping craft beer wouldn’t be complete without local music. The Arts Council Stage will feature live performances by Amanda Silvera and Mr. Rust. 

Of course Steel & Oak beer will be available and Flip Top Filipino Fusion Food Truck will be on site for your eating needs.

***New this year!*** We are partnering up with Social Medium as our official after party hosts for an evening of electronic music at Old Crow Coffee. Artists will include, Hargow (Live), DJ Mutes Ito, and Rob Hay.

Social Medium starts at 6PM and is walking distance from the Analog venue. We’ve timed the walk so that you have enough time to pop into a couple establishments on the way for a quick bite or beer.

As always, it’s free to attend but please register here so we know how much beer to bring 😉

See you on the 22nd!
