SUNDAY 6/15 (FATHER’S DAY)
WAX TRAX! POP-UP STORE
METRO
3730 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60613
FREE  ALL AGES  11A-4P

We’ve got tons & tons of Wax Trax! luv just waiting to ooze all over the Metro’s main floor.
Looking for the Ministry/ Cold Life red cover?…We’ve got ‘em!
Need to fill in the collection with some PTV or Coil test pressings?…No problem!
We really have dug deep to offer the most expansive Wax Trax! collection in one place.

All this and more to the sounds of our wonderful DJs Jeff Pazen, Glenn Russell and Leroy Fields playing the music that made the Lincoln Ave. store legendary.

Our love doesn’t stop there. As I mentioned last time, the first 40 people in line will get a special fan bag with some nice little goodies stashed inside.

And don’t forget the “golden ticket”!
At some point throughout the day, one random customer will receive a ticket stuffed in their checkout bag.

This ticket will give the holder special access and perks to an upcoming WT event this Fall. In addition, we know that collectors who shop for records and merch can work up quite a thirst. The full bar will be in service. Light food and coffee will also be available.

 COCKSURE PRE-ORDER

For those who have pre-ordered the single, we know you have been patiently waiting, well the wait is over and they start shipping today! keep your eyes peeled this week for your copy to arrive!

Yep-As I may have stated before, Groovie and Buzz are out on the road as we speak. The US tour in support of their new album, “Spooky Tricks” should not be missed.
