One of the most anticipated events all summer is the fireworks show at the NC State Fairgrounds every July 4th. Beginning this year, however, the city of Raleigh will celebrate Independence Day on Fayetteville Street in Downtown Raleigh.
In addition to the fireworks display at 9:30pm, there will be events held all day long. Some of these include the King BMX Stunt Show, a Hot Dog Eating Contest, Ice Cream Eating Contest, as well as Musical Performances at the Morgan Street Stage, on the Courthouse Steps and the City Plaza Stage.
With the popularity of digital music rising and with so many digital music providers to choose from such as iTunes, Spotify and Pandora, it’s kind of surprising to see a vinyl record store open up right here on Glenwood South. Owner of In The Groove Records, Greg Rollins is going against the odds to bring those hard to find records to vinyl lovers in the Raleigh area.
Most records stores will auction off high valued vinyls on Ebay. Rollins is trying to do the opposite. He wants people to be able to get them without the hassle of bidding and using a computer. This is a place where you can expect excellent service and a one on one experience with the owner. He will gladly play any records that you want to listen to while browsing.
So if you’re a hardcore vinyl collector or want to sell or trade in some records that you’ve been holding onto, In The Groove Records is the place to go. Recently opened in the Carter Building on Glenwood, Greg Rollins hopes to bring those sought after vinyls to your fingertips while helping out the local music scene also. No bidding necessary.
Just clip it on your belt!
