7 boxes of Brazilian records that we feared lost have been found and are now a Rappcats. So Joel Stones’ NYC record store Tropicalia in Furs will open again one more day in Los Angeles!
April 20 (Sat) 12-6 PM
Rappcats, 5638 York Blvd, L.A. CA 90042
This year’s collection will have a special focus on 45s, in addition to Joel’s usual Brazilian and worldly gems: “I will bring tons of Brazilian records, LPs, some jazz, funk, soul, prog, psych, garage, and thousands of 45s with good French, Turkish, African, American and beyond from my own private collection.”
Tropicalia in Furs, East Village NYC, was a record store like no other, a spot for rarities, psychedelic sounds and unparalleled chit chat. The shop closed in 2013. This is our 5th year in a row hosting the Tropicalia in Furs pop-up at Rappcats. Somehow, each year seems to top the last. We really don’t know how he does it.
