The True Vine Record Shop, a Hampden-based record store that has been recognized as one of the nation’s best for its eclectic offerings and shelf space for experimental genres, says it is being forced out of its Hickory Avenue storefront by an unlikely foe: the Golden West Cafe, a funky Tex-Mex restaurant around the corner, on W. 36th Street.

Atomic Books presents: KILL YR ’90S NIGHT!


Kill Yr 90s Night

catch of the day fish (2)Okay, try to follow our logic on this one. Over a decade ago, Atomic Books started and ran an annual night of music dedicated to reminding us that no matter what our nostalgic impulses said, the music of the 1980s was not really all that great (we beg to differ, but whatever). The event was called “I Hate the ’80s Night!” and featured, ironically, a line-up of local bands playing hits from the 1980s (no doubt proving how great that music really was—but again, whatever) . Well, after five years of hating on the 1980s, the good people of Atomic Books retired the night. After all, as they put it: “it’d be weird to spend a decade hating a decade.” Right. Haters gonna hate—but only for half the decade. Well, here we are, a whole millennium later, and the folks at Atomic Books have decided it’s time to remind us that our now well-worn nostalgia for the 1990’s is also misplaced. So what do we get? Kill Yr 90s Night!
