The NY institution returns for a spooky shindig at their upstate store.
The famed record shop relocated last year from its longtime Brooklyn location to a small town called Oak Hill, three hours north of the city. Since re-opening, Slow To Speak—the duo of Paul Nickerson and Francis Englehardt, and the Dope Jams masterminds—have hosted a number of parties in their upstate location, and they're back this month for their "annual Dionysian jubilee." Costumes are strongly encouraged, say the store managers ("you will be met with considerable disdain if you dare set foot on sacred ground without sufficiently daft attire"), and they'll be joined by fellow selector Johnny Romero for the occasion. For more on Dope Jams, check out our Real Scenes: New York documentary from last year.
