In 1975, Jaws proved it wasn’t safe in the water. In 2017, the water did a 180 and decided that Bucket O’ Blood Books and Records’ stock wasn’t safe from it. Yes, unfortunately, Chicago’s premium spot for horror books and used vinyl suffered from some flood damage last week.
Rallying, as independent businesses must, the store is hosting a Flood Sale and Party this Friday from 12 pm to 9 pm. They will have some of their damaged product on sale at slashed prices. Other independent artists and businesses are offering exclusive merchandise and cut rate vinyl for sale, as well, with all of the proceeds going to the recovery effort.
More information is available on the exclusive page for the event:
After spending time as one of the whipped and chained at Father Lou’s Cathedral of Catholic Cranks, I have, generally, come to dread the mention of an unveiling of any sort.
Granted, there are always exceptions to the rules – one, in particular, being the fact that the amazing Bucket O’ Blood Books and Records at 2307 N. Milwaukee in Chicago, is unveiling something huge, today (and into infinity)!
Lucky celluloid hunters can get first the first peek at the store’s Halloween Happy Hour, beginning at 4 PM. BTW – I have heard rumors that it may involve a bevy of Graveyard Tramps floating around, as well!
