Happy Birthday, Last Vestige!

October 7th, 2010, 11:01 am by Greg

Congratulations go out to the Last Vestige Music Shop in Albany, which is celebrating its 21st anniversary this weekend. Yes, finally, it’s legal for Last Vestige to go into a bar…

But seriously, folks, these days it’s rare enough for any independent business to survive for so long in our rapidly changing (and not for the better) economy – let alone an independent record store that’s been financially assaulted by all manner of digitally downloading, file-sharing and online business.

So congrats go out to Jim Furlong and his staff for continuing to provide Nippertown music lovers with a place where you can actually give your fingers a workout as you flip through the vinyl albums and CD jewel cases.

In honor of their anniversary, Last Vestige is throwing a huge sale all weekend long with just about everything in the store at 30-50% off. The sale starts today and runs through Sunday. So if you’re looking for the Jeff Tweedy soundtrack to “Chelsea Walls,” an old Bert Sommer album or a seven-inch single of the A.D.’s “Living Downtown,” Last Vestige is always the place to start your search…
