Rush Hour Records is moving to a larger space
Rush Hour, the institution that has occupied Spuistraat 98 for 17 years, is moving to a larger space up the road this spring. The new venue, Spuistraat 116, will allow for the shop to stock a larger selection of records, both new and second-hand. Additionally, the updated space will afford Rush Hour the ability to act as host for other activities, as they mentioned in an announcement on their blog.
The Dutch record shop is famous for its vast selection of rarities and exclusive releases from the likes of Ben UFO, Joy Orbison, and Pearson Sound, all of whom recorded a limited cassette release for the store to mark ADE.
Rush Hour plans to commemorate the move with a three-day party event from April 8-10 at OT301. Friday, they will host Dego and the 2000Black live band, in addition to Volcov and Margie. Saturday, the bill includes Mick Wills, Robert Bergman and Interstellar Funk. Closing the event will be a Soul In The Hole event, beginning at 5 PM, and featuring Sadar Bahar and Lee Collins.
Tickets are available here.
