Spinning April 22, 2017, the 10th annual Record Store Day will offer an opportunity to celebrate the indie record stores in the South Sound, reflect on the state of the music industry and consider the demand for vinyl production. This year’s list of special releases includes Big Star’s Complete Third: Vol. 3 — Final Masters 2x 12-inch, Pink Floyd’s “Interstellar Overdrive” 12-inch (unreleased 15-minute version), Iggy Pop’s Post Pop Depression Live at the Royal Albert Hall 3x 12-inch (performance from what Pop described as his final tour) and Dolly Parton’s “Puppy Love” 7-inch (her first recording).
Peaks and Pints digs this vinyl holiday, as evident with our weekly Monday SudsPop music and craft beer nights, in which a single craft brewery takes over our jukebox, pours its beers and hosts wacky games.
Thursday, April 20, we’ll host a special SudsPop night inviting Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales to our little lodge for a pre Record Store Day celebration. Every year, the Baltimore brewery creates the official beer of Record Store Day; this year a tropical blonde ale called Beer To Drink Music To ’17. The ale features hibiscus flowers and kiwi juice, with strong citrus fruit aromas, hints of grapefruit and floral notes and a crisp, dry finish. We’ll be pouring the Beer To Drink Music To ’17 — as well as 120 Minute IPA, Olde School Barleywine, Palo Santo Marron and World Wide Stout — from our Western red cedar tap log beginning at 6 p.m.
Every Dogfish Head beer ordered comes with a raffle ticket with a change to win an awesome Crosley/Dogfish Head turntable, which is on display at Peaks and Pints. In addition, bring in receipts from vinyl purchases 1-20 for an extra chance to win the turntable.
In addition, there will be plenty of Dogfish Head door prizes, including free Record Store Day posters while supplies last.
Dogfish Head has also teamed up with Sony Legacy for a record collaboration, called Music To Drink Beer To, Vol. 3. The vinyl compilation will be released on Record Store Day at retailers across the country.
PRE RECORD STORE DAY WITH DOGFISH HEAD, 6 p.m., Thursday, April 20, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover
