That glorious, brightly-lit, sleazy Hustler store on Sunrise Boulevard was once a record store Peaches. In the past few years, many of us have lost our favorite record stores to other businesses, and words like sad or depressing cant thoroughly express the loss. (Then again, its hard to argue against a shop loaded with sex toys the switch in propriety is great for folks in need of other products.) Shopping for CDs at Wal-Mart doesnt really cut it for those of us accustomed to better. This Sunday at 9 p.m. Cinema Paradiso will transform into a well-needed record swap. At CP Rocks Presents Can I Say-Sunday II, everyone is free to trade and sell their vinyls; theres no vendor charge. Later into the night, the film House of the Rising Punk will screen. Rising Punk is a documentary filled with interviews from Patti Smith, Richard Hell, Dee Dee Ramone, Legs McNeil, among others who share memories of the foremost era of New Yorks punk underground back in the 1970s. After the film, bands Anchorman, the Ruins, and Tongues of the Heartworm will perform. Sundays a titillating day full of music; Monday, you can go refill the lube. This event is free.
