Logan Hardware Shows Off The New Digs, Announces In-Store Shows

2013_11_14_LoganHardware.jpg It’s been four months since Logan Hardware Records relocated—the quaint record shop moved just a couple blocks over to 2532 W. Fullerton back in July—to a larger space. It took some time to settle in: They added 10 more record bins to hold thousands of more vinyl records as well as six pinball machines in the arcade museum to bring the total up to ten.

But they’re finally ready to show off the new digs with a series of grand opening events. Over the next month, Logan Hardware will hold a bundle of in-store performances each Saturday starting this weekend. Check them out:

Nov. 16 at 6 p.m.
Local house DJs Matt Warren and Miguel Garcia will put on a live production set. They’ll spin old Chicago disco and house classics and there will be copies for sale of two new Still Music compilations featuring many of these tracks.

Nov. 23 at 2 p.m.
Tizona Records and Katalyst Entertainment are putting on this show—a record re-issue release party for Phil Cohran’s On the Beach. The 86-year-old jazz legend will perform and sit for a Q&A.

Dec. 7 at 4 p.m.
Ralph “Soul” Jackson, also known as the “Alabama Love Man” will be in store for a live show. The Southern soul icon has, in recent years, become a close friend to local label The Rabbit Factory, which is curating this event.

Dec. 14 at 4 p.m.
New Orleans hip-hop legend Ricky B. helped pave the way for bounce music in the 90s and in December he’ll be heading to Chicago to perform an intimate set at Logan Hardware.
