Vinyl fanatics can gather in Kakaako
By Jason Genegabus
Got vinyl? The Lightsleepers Hawaii crew wants to see you at “Beatroot Bodega” tomorrow at Fresh Cafe.
Billed as “Hawaii’s first record swap” all-ages event, the hope is to bring together Honolulu’s vinyl purists, DJs, collectors and anyone else interested in digging through crates for musical gems. Hawaii-based clothing companies and other retailers also have been invited to set up shop at the Kakaako coffee shop’s warehouse space.
In addition to the wheeling and dealing, local DJs Observ, Oliver Twist, Jahson the 45 Revolver and special guests will spin vinyl-only sets on the turntables at Fresh Cafe.
