Kittens and Crawdads, Get Over to Shake Rattle & Read's 49th Anniversary Sale
If you haven't been to Shake Rattle & Read yet, you are missing out! Conveniently located right next door to the Uptown Theater at 4812 North Broadway, you will not only find a great selection of books and vinyl, but if you're lucky you will have a chance to talk to Ric Addy and hear some of his stories about Uptown's rock scene over the years. (Our favorite, hearing about Sean Lennon coming in before a show to buy old magazines featuring his father, to give to his mother.) Luckily for us all, there's a big sale going on this weekend to celebrate SRR's mind-boggling 49th anniversary! More below in their own inimitable words.
"This may be the only 49th anniversary sale Shake Rattle & Read will ever have. And in honor of that we are giving great deals.
