Milwaukee Record Book Club with Vinyl Me, Please

Last June, Milwaukee Record hosted an interactive public discussion at Cactus Club with author Steven Hyden that we called “Milwaukee Record Book Club.” We recorded it and released it as a live episode of our “On The Record” podcast, swearing we’d host another Book Club again sometime. Maybe.

Thursday, June 22—almost exactly a year later—we’ll reconvene at Cactus Club for another edition with a different author. This time around, we’ve invited Vinyl Me, Please Senior Editor Andrew Winistorfer (and possibly other VMP contributors) to join us for a lively chat about the record subscription club’s first book, “100 Albums You Need In Your Collection.” Not familiar? Here’s how Vinyl Me, Please sums it up:

“Celebrating artists as varied and influential as Bikini Kill, Aretha Franklin, Wilco, and beyond, each entry includes an album’s artwork, a short essay from a contributing music writer, and further suggestions to help you expand your taste and build your collection.”

Once again, this event is free and open to the public (21+). It starts at 7 p.m. The book will be available for purchase on-site, and both Vinyl Me, Please and Milwaukee Record will hang out after for a DJ set that will feature albums in the book and beyond. See you there!
