Beat Swap Meet: Traveling Record Show
Beat Swap Meet, the world’s only traveling record show, will kick off its 2015 tour in Phoenix on Sunday, Jan. 18.
The meet is a celebration of all things vinyl and will bring a number of record collectors and dealers from across Arizona and California to Monarch Theatre.

Artists will also be on site selling their own music, clothing, art and more.
The all-ages event runs from noon to 6 P.M. and can be attended for $3 with the donation of a canned good.
If you’re not ready for the fun to end at 6 P.M., go grab dinner and return at 9 P.M. for the VINYL after party featuring Chicago disco/house DJ Zernell. The party is free before 10 P.M. and $5 thereafter.
