Amoeba Music will be on hand at Wax, a record fair happening just up the street from us at the Capitol Records Building parking lot on Vine Street October 24-25. We'll have a massive selection of rare test pressings available, as well as autographed albums and more to pick up, as well as our famous prize wheel—come by and give it a spin!
Tickets for the event start at $10 and are on sale now. The even starts at noon each day and runs until 6 p.m., but early access passes are available for purchase.
Vendors include such labels as Capitol, Harvest, Blue Note, Virgin, Caroline, Stones Throw, Astralwerks, Federal Prism, Innovative Leisure and more. Expect artist signings, DJ sets and moderated panel discussions on ever aspect of producing vinyl.
You can even take a tour of Capitol Studios and Mastering. Mastering and vinyl engineer Ian Sefchick will lead intimate, 30-minute demonstrations showing how vinyl is cut from analog tape on one of the Capitol Neumann lathes, which have cut albums from such artists as Pink Floyd, R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alabama Shakes and N.W.A. (Tour tickets are $40 per person and limited to 36 people per day; buy admittance to the tour as part of your ticket package.)
