Pre-Generation-X, cover your ears. This might be hard to hear. Did you know that 97 percent of high school-aged kids have never been to a standalone record store?
That statistic inspired White Stripes guitar virtuoso and all-around interesting dude Jack White to create the country’s first rolling record shop. The tune truck is actually a vintage school bus that White’s Third Man Records label outfitted with turntables and a fancy speaker system so local DJs can do a guest set on the spot.
We seriously have no intel on this, so file this one under Just Sayin’: Polish Hill resident and world-renowned mash-up king Girl Talk is right in the neighborhood.
Of course, the truck sells rare vinyls, too.
If this sounds awesome to you, get to Mind Cure Records (3138 Dobson St.) today. The truck will be there from 3-8 p.m.
You can’t miss it. It’s painted black and gold.
With the food truck scene in full swing around here, it’s nice to see music fans get a little mobile love, too.
