In the comments, the folks at Smash Records mention that tomorrow night, June 12, the store will host a screening of Vinyl Scrapyard. The film, a documentary about the decline of the indie record store, is directed by Billups Allen, a former Smash clerk and Darkest Hour bassist. John Metcalfe profiled Allen in City Paper in 2003, following the publication of his first novel, Unfurnished.
