I'm collaborating with Mind Cure Records in Polish Hill to organize and promote Pittsburgh's newest record show, the Pgh Vinyl Convention, which is presented in association with the VIA Music & New Media Festival 2011. VIA is a music festival that's going to be in East Liberty in October. Here goes the flier and the press release. If anyone is interested in being a vendor email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there one way or another! Thanks, J
Pittsburgh's newest record show, the Pgh Vinyl Convention, debuts on Saturday October 8th, 2011 in conjunction with the VIA Music and New Media Festival 2011 in East Liberty. VIA is # 5 on Resident Advisor's top ten festivals list – its debut last year boasted over 2,000 attendees – and this year promises to be ... even bigger. More information about the VIA Music and New Media Festival 2011 is available at:
The Pittsburgh Vinyl Convention is at the same building as the VIA festival – 6022 Broad Street in East Liberty – but is in its own space with its own entrance at 162 Sheridan Street.
Saturday October 8th, 2011 9 am - 5 pm
162 Sheridan Ave. (East Liberty)
entrance directly to the right of Domino's Pizza
early admission 9 am - 10 am, $10
general admission 10 am - 5 pm, $3
This is an ALL AGES event appropriate for the entire family.
Dealers will load in around the corner at 6022 Broad St. There's an elevator at this entrance. Parking for dealers is located around the corner across from the main entrance on Sheridan Ave.
- Load in for dealers starts at 8 am
- Table fee is $40 per table (at this time there is no limit on number of tables per dealer). A $20 down payment per table will be required with the total balance due the day of the convention.
This is a new record show and we're aware that it's coming together right under the wire, but there are perks:
In addition to the influx of people who will be traveling to Pittsburgh for VIA, there is also another record show, the Pittsburgh Record Fest, going on the same night (Saturday October 8th) at a nearby venue, Belvedere's in Lawrenceville. There is no fee to be a vendor at Pittsburgh Record Fest. These two shows falling on the same day offers unprecedented incentive for potential attendees and vendors to travel to Pittsburgh to buy/sell records.
