My sister came in town this weekend and wanted to see The Rockettes. At this morning's performance, she & I watched some complete morons try to cut the line to get in and be just generally nasty to those around them. I generally expect people to be nicer during the holiday season.
With that (the nice, not the nasty) in mind, The ARChive of Contemporary Music is kicking off their holiday sale on December 8th. The ARChive is a not-for-profit archive and research center that collects, preserves and provides information on the popular music from 1950 to the present.
There are many reasons to check this out -- it is a good cause, there are great bargains and you can never go wrong giving someone music as a holiday present.
The record sale will take place at the ARChive offices @ 54 White St. (Three short blocks south of Canal, between Broadway & Church in Tribeca. Take the 1 train to Franklin, or any train to Canal.) The sale runs from December 8th - December 16th and the hours are 11AM - 6PM every day. Admission is free!
