Spinning vinyl at the Carver
Friday, February 15, 2019 by Tai Moses
As turntable enthusiasts may already know, the Carver, at 1161 Angelina St., is the only branch of the Austin Public Library to boast a record collection. Naturally it wasn’t long before all that luscious vinyl attracted some DJs, like bees to blossoms. On Friday, Feb. 15, from 7 to 9:30 p.m., the city’s Music & Entertainment Division is partnering with the library to present “Vinyl Night at the Carver,” a dual celebration of Love Austin Music Month and Black History Month featuring Austin musicians Mélat and DJ Raquiqui. The DJs will play selections from the Carver Library collection along with some of their own personal faves. The event is free and light refreshments will be served.
