As you may have heard, we're super stoked to get our summer soul programming underway. We're kicking things off this month with the very first TITLE TOWN Record Bar in the Shadow Lounge Blue Room. It's the one place in town where you can buy vintage vinyl, sip tasty drinks and dance all night. And this isn't just soul, our dealers will have a wide-ranging selection of reasonably priced goodness. To celebrate, we're having a little contest. Here's what we got for you: ONE LUCKY WINNER will receive a $20 gift certificate courtesy of Jerry's Records in Squirrel Hill, a limited edition Title Town t-shirt (limited sizes), free admission to the party, a limited edition JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound 45 courtesy of Addenda Records and a Charles Bradley (Daptone Records) 45! TO ENTER: Just RSVP at the Facebook event page by 6pm on Friday, April 27th. A winner will be announced on Saturday.
It’s that one of the night of month where vinyl has never really gone a way, it’s that party on the East End where everything is classic, yet the sounds are as fresh and original as anything coming out today. Title Town is the one night of the month where we shake up the Shadow Lounge with five hours of high-octane, straight-ahead, old school soul and funk grooves. If you haven’t been, it’s a new kind of nightlife experience, a bridge between past and present, from Detroit to Memphis, from the mid-'60s to the late '70s, Lee Moses to Lee Fields - and it’s happening every month. ANNOUNCING THE TT RECORD BAR! This month, arrive extra early or take a break from the dance-floor.
