Retro media is all the rage right now: The obsolete music formats of yesteryear — vinyl, cassettes and, we’re sad to say, CDs — are appealing more than ever to collectors who want something more tangible than sound files they downloaded from the iTunes Store. (No word yet on the prevailing cool factor of 8-tracks.) Wax junkies should find themselves in analog heaven at Saturday’s Spokane Record Expo, where local music merchants, as well as vendors from Portland, Seattle, Missoula and the Tri-Cities, will be selling albums on all formats in the lobby of the Community Building. $2 gets you into the event, and all proceeds benefit community radio station KYRS. It’ll be a good excuse to fill in the gaps of your own collection.
Sat, June 10 from 11 am-4 pm • $2 entry fee • Community Building • 35 W. Main • kyrs.org
