Spinners Records, the Tower District’s neighborhood record shop, is celebrating 20 years with a party Wednesday night at Audie’s Olympic. Yep, while Wherehouse, Tower Records and others have trotted off to the Big Music Store in the Sky, Spinners is still selling vinyl on Olive Avenue.
Compared to Spinners, the Dorktown podcast is (1) Just a baby and (2) Operating in a strange digital dimension. Dorktown is celebrating its four-year anniversary on Thursday night and the offering is actually quite similar to the Spinners party — free show at Audie’s featuring local bands. One thing the Dorktown party has that others don’t: An AC/DC tribute band called Big Balls. More details on the flier.
On Friday, the City of Fresno’s Parks & Rec Department is celebrating the opening of its latest action-sports attraction. The 30,000-square-foot Mosqueda Bike Park is opening with an X-Games star, a jam session and a $1,800 contest. More details below.
