2/14-15 • You’ve heard of vinyl records, but have you ever actually seen one? If you were born after 1987, chances are the answer is “no.” This weekend, the 2009 KPBX Recordings and Video Sale offers the perfect opportunity to enlighten your digital self as to the wonders of antiquated recording media, with loads of donated cassette tapes, VHS (dare we hope for Beta?), computer software, and yes, even vinyl. For the diehard audiophile, there may even be some vintage recording equipment on hand. Spokane Public Radio’s own Patrick Klausen will be spinning the inventory during the event, which means you can purchase recordings straight off his turntable. There will be two listening centers for patrons to preview recordings, and live music from 1-3 p.m. both days, with originals and covers from The Occasional String Band on Saturday, and Dead Man’s Pants on Sunday. There’s a raffle for some great prizes as well as refreshments from Craven’s Coffee Company and Rocket Bakery. Leave your iPod at home and get there early for the best deals: Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Spokane Masonic Center, 1107 W. Main.
