The new Doc's Records & Vintage in Fort Worth has been open for a couple months now, but they've no doubt been letting all that vinyl smell settle in.
Good news for record nerds and fans of that smell: They've finally set a date for their grand opening. On February 25, Doc's breaks a bottle of champagne on its bow with performances from Drift Era, New Fumes, Slumberbuzz, Mind Spiders, Peopleodian, RTB2 and Spooky Folk. Mind Spiders release their new album, Meltdown, that same week, so it should be a pretty bonkers show.
This spells great things for the upcoming Record Store Day on April 21, but then, you know every day should be record store day, right?
