Popgun & Records Per Minute to Hold Event to Raise Money For Stan Smith, 1/13
On Monday, January 13, 2014 at 9:00 PM at the Rumba Cafe, 2507 Summit Street, Columbus, Ohio 43202, Popgun & Records Per Minute are holding an event to replace Stan Smith's Record Collection.
Stan Smith has been a huge part of our community for years. His house burned down recently. There are benefits going on to help, but we want to contribute in a specific way. Most of his records were lost. As he has given music to so many, we will turn profits into a gift certificate at Records Per Minute to help Stan buy records. The store will give him a special discount to make it stretch even further. Please come and help us give back to this important member of our music scene.
Sophisticated, fun, sexy pop played by great musicians:
and much more
