Less Digital, More Manual: Queen City Social Club Presents Record Club
The Queen City Social Club is at it again with another event meant to encourage interaction and discovery of new music in a clever way. At the inaugural Record Club, QCSC member and Radiator DJ, Brian Nagle, will set up his turntables and mixer and invite the crowd to bring some of their favorite vinyl to spin. With over eight years of experience DJing on the radio and in clubs, Nagle was sick of people complaining about what DJ’s play. He wanted to find a creative way for people to share their music and learn about new stuff in a more social setting than MP3 blogs and bit torrent sites. Starting Saturday April 3 at Radio Bean, people can come down, grab a drink and relax with an eclectic mix of Burlingtonians and their music.
Participants are encouraged to show up a few minutes early to get on the sign up sheet—karaoke style. Nagle will man the wheels of steel and call up each person as it’s their turn. A mic will be set up too if people want to tell everyone why their song is their song (credit metz). Each record club will be recorded and posted on The Radiator website as a podcast to give the world a snapshot of what Burlington is listening to in a given week.
Record Club’s tagline of “Less Digital, More Manual” says it all. Anything and everything is welcome as long as it’s on vinyl. Complete details are below. To see what else the Queen City Social Club is up to, look them up at their blog or come up and say ‘hi’ at the Bean.
