Record Sale This Weekend (and Radio Birdman's Imminent Arrival)

Posted By on Fri, Apr 27, 2007 at 5:52 PM

Once you've been to all the shows we talked about (or at least the ones between now and Sunday) in the music section, regroup with some retail therapy at the Zebedee's-sponsored record sale, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Westport-Roanoke Community Center (3601 Roanoke Road). In addition to LPs, 45s and 78s, there'll be CDs, posters, videos and other music junkie merch -- 30 tables of it, they claim. There will also be a lot of introverts shuffling around, dying for a nice, sensitive person like you to hit on them under the pretext of talking about a Richard & Linda Thompson album and take them home and listen to Radio Birdman, the legendary 70s Australian punk band whose latest release, Zeno Beach, broke a 25-year spell of studio silence. Why's that interesting?

Because Radio Birdman's coming to the Record Bar, on Friday, July 13. There aren't many shows happening anywhere, period, that earn music fans of my generation bragging rites. I think in a few decades, I'll be telling the old boys down at the pub where and when I saw Radio Birdman on a hot Friday the 13th in July in Kansas City.
