vinyl in the woods

Join us in Big Sur on Saturday, May 28 as we take part in the Vinyl in the Woods all day record fair! Amoeba will have a booth and will be spinning records! If you haven’t been to the amazing Henry Miller Library, this is a reason to come out! Sift through some great records, hear some great music and be a part of this one of a kind record fair! Here's more about the fest:
 
Magnus Toren had a vision.

Growing up in Sweden he became enamored by vinyl at an early age (John Mayall’s Crusade comes to mind.) It was a love that stayed with him his whole life, up until now, where he is the Executive Director of the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, CA.

The Henry Miller Library is a non-profit art center that has live music (Arcade Fire, Animal Collective, Band of Horses), theater events, the Big Sur International Short Film Screening Series, writing workshops, and so much more. Check out their online schedule for the amazing events from now until mid-October here in your backyard.

Two years ago, Magnus envisioned bringing together the best vinyl dealers and independent collectors in California to Big Sur. He did. Vinyl in the Woods was born. And it ruled.

The second annual Vinyl in the Woods takes place on Saturday, May 28th, at the Henry Miller Library, which is located 30 miles south of Carmel on Rt. 1.

The event, from 10 am to 6 pm, is free to the general public. Come down early for an exclusive screening of the Wrecking Crew Friday night. (The holiday weekend also features sold-out shows with Chris Robinson and Gillian Welch.)
