Black & Read in Arvada is a record store that fans of vinyl need to visit. Their selection of new and used vinyl, cds, cassettes, magazines and turntables (and a book store) and music-loving staff is not what you would expect in this tan retail building
Record Store Day started with a line that braved the snow and cold sidewalks. Customers lined up and picked through the Record Store Day Selections then ventured to the substantial used vinyl to round out their purchases for the day.
Black & Read had a party-like mood through out the day that picked up with the addition of live music. Denver band’s Chella & the Charm, Muscle Beach, and Dreadnought provided the soundtrack that ranged from alt-country (Chella) to metal (Dreadnought).
If you have not been to Black & Read it is really worth a visit.
