Jan 6  NJ, Jersey City. JERSEY CITY RECORD RIOT! Yes, we move things INDOORS for the winter, in an old magnificent church right down the street from Iris Records. Cathedral Hall (former St. Bridget’s), located at 380 Montgomery Street in JC , was the site of the Iris 20th Anniversary party and is a perfect (and dramatic) spot for a record show. We’ll have live DJs, a full bar with snacks, other surprises as well. And over 35 tables of merchandise from the New York area’s best record and CD dealers too. Event hours are noon-8 PM, and it might go longer in party form! Admission is $3.00 ($10.00 early admission at 10 AM). Think of it as a huge party with records for sale. There’s limited selling space available too, so get in touch with us before this event sells out. C: 914-409-3982
