    Im working on it, promise. Things take time, trying to find a venue with a turntable on site vs. having to bring in a DJ. & yah, to sustain the spins program we had to pay for its costs / get it cost neutral. in return, we give them lots of promotion through all our channels, vinyl product, ambassadors ,etc.

    The Brooklyn one is really close to me so I"m likely to go to my first Spins event.

    However, I have a couple of friends who might be tempted to go to the Manhattan. Anybody here been to this one? The venue is Night After Night which isn't a bar, looks like more of an office event space...

    Oh man! I've been creeping on Spiritland for a year or so now. Definitely going to be a stop on my next trip. Their setup and overall services look amazing.

    We need a Spiritland in the USA. Preferably about 15 mins from my house ;)

    Yo0o0o! I'm excited about this new Brooklyn location- seems to be a pretty cool space.

    The Manhattan Spins is at Night After Night- they're a creative agency but they have a bar space in their office! Jameson is one of their biggest clients ;)

    Yes!! Yes we do!

    If we want to start our own I'm in for 1/3 of startup costs. Let's call Barnes :D

    Wanted to drop an update in here too- The Spins will still be going down tomorrow. We will be spinning A Night at the Opera and doing a raffle. If a nonmember wins, we will collect their email and set them up for a membership, they will receive a Queen record once the jackets are reprinted. If a member wins, we will add credit to your VMP account :) CARRY ON.

    Really looking forward to the first Toronto one tomorrow night. And drinking...coffee...way later than my normal caffeine cutoff.

    I realize VMP does not want the misprints out there, but would be awesome if the winners at The Spins got to keep the misprints. Ultra limited.

    The post also mentions management. I assume that means Queen’s management doesn’t want them out there.

    Totes m'gotes. Was a load of fun last time out! Can't go wrong with a bit of Bohemian Rhapsody even in a classy cocktail bar. ;)

    I've been to Bierwax a couple of times. Cool bar. Maybe I'll stop by tomorrow.

    Someone may have asked this already, but is their a plan for the Spins listing on the VMP website to be the same as the events website? The one on the website seems out of date (still listing Elsewhere as venue, and showing none at all for Brooklyn on the map).

    My bad- updated.

    FYI- The events.vinylmeplease.com landing page will be no more starting in January 2019. We will solely refer to the https://www.vinylmeplease.com/spins/ & FB event page starting in 2019.

    Just wanted to say I had an awesome time at the inaugural Toronto Spins last night. The record is great, the venue is great, and I'm looking forward to it becoming a staple.
