How is Santa Rosa's long-running, independently owned Last Record Store like an actual LP? Well, for one the store counts time in 33 and 1/3. First opened in 1983, the Last Record Store is throwing a 33 and 1/3 anniversary party (in honor of the rotations per minute that an actual record spins, kids) with a daylong concert celebration at the Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa that includes tons of local bands, food, vintage T-shirts and swag.
Featured is newly reformed indie band Santiago, fronted by former Bohemian editor Gabe Meline, who will be performing their now 10-year-old album Rosenberg's After Dark in its entirety. Other confirmed acts are big-band horn blowers the Dixie Giants, punk band the Freak Accident (led by Victims Family founder Ralph Spight), indie rockers the New Trust, rising experimental noise rockers OVVN, ambient hardcore kids the Down House and others.
The Last Record Store celebrates its musical anniversary on Sunday, June 26, at Arlene Francis Center, 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 2pm. Free admission. 707.525.1963.
