When you're in the business of buying and selling vinyl, there comes a time when you need to clear the shelves to make room for new collectible LPs and 45s. And while you probably won't find that super-rare Beatles record you've always been looking for at Shangri-La's Purge Fest, you will find great deals on records, books, and CDs all for a dollar or less. Shangri-La shop manager Jared McStay says that the purge is necessary to keep the 21-year-old record store up to date.

"We don't do a purge annually, but every few years our store gets so overwhelmed with awesome stuff that we set something like this up to get ready for all the new stuff that's constantly coming in," McStay says.

In addition to extremely low prices, Purge Fest will also feature music from the Switchblade Kid, James and the Ultrasounds, Hartle Road, and the Sheiks.
