After the ARC Party, no more wine, but we still have lots of great stuff on the wall!

Last night’s members party at the archive was a great success. As you can see from the “After” picture, all of the excellent LPs displayed on our wall before the party started were snatched up by our record-hungry attendees. Fortunately, we have plenty of other excellent selections to replace them, all of which will be available for purchase when our sale officially begins tomorrow at 11:00AM. Get ’em while they’re hot!

ARChive of Contemporary Music • 54 White Street in Tribeca.  Sale everyday from Saturday, Dec 7 through Sunday, Dec 15, from 11am to 6pm.  Cash only – all to benefit the library.
