The Soulsville Record Swap at Stax 

This Saturday afternoon, Goner Records and the Stax Museum will host the Soulsville Record Swap, a giant swap meet featuring albums, 45s, music memorabilia, and everything in between. Goner Records has been hosting a record swap for the past three years, but co-owner Zac Ives said this is the first time that Stax has gotten in on the action.

"The new director over at Stax reached out about six months ago, and this is one of the things we discussed doing right away," Ives said.

"We were both really excited to work together, and we have some other things planned for the future."

Ives said that vendors are coming from as far as Seattle to sell records this Saturday and that all vendor spots have been filled. In addition to awesome music memorabilia from Memphis and beyond, the Soulsville Record Swap will feature food trucks from Central BBQ and Hot Mess Burritos. The Stax Museum will also be selling deeply discounted CDs, books, apparel, and more. Admission for the event is $5, unless you want to get in an hour before everyone else (10 a.m.), in which case the cost of admission is $10.

"All of our record swaps in the past have been great, and working with Stax is going to make this event our biggest one yet," Ives said.

Because no Goner-related event is complete without a pre-party and an after-party, there will be both. The pre-party goes down on Friday at Memphis Made Brewery from 7 to 10 p.m., and the after party will be at the Goner Records store from 7 to 10 p.m. as well. Both parties will feature DJs that have yet to be announced.

If you're a fan of Memphis music (you better be), there's no better place to spend your Saturday afternoon.
