There are a number of reasons why old music technology is making a comeback. Records fearlessly occupy space, giving volume and substance to music collections that would otherwise cower in the dark recesses of hard drives.
Vinyl also allows for more elaborate liner notes and other value-added content, and the sound itself is arguably richer than digitized tunes.
It's these benefits and more that make the hearts of Vinyl Preservation Society members glow with pride at the resurgence of the record. VPS is hosting In With the New at the Crux today from 7-10 p.m. According to VPS:
Among the possible interpretations: New records you’ve recently acquired, songs and/or bands with the word “new” in their names (closet New Christy Minstrels fans, this is your night to shine). And since we’re only a few months into our residency at The Crux, it still feels new to us.
You can bring your records and socialize from 7-7:30 p.m., then show off your selections in an open-play format from 7:30-10 p.m.
