The Record Show

The largest and longest-running record show in Minnesota!

The MN Record Show, The Hook & Ladder Theater and Zen Arcade are teaming up for a special Prince themed indoor/outdoor summer Record Show event on Sat, June 1st! In addition to dozens of vintage vinyl, posters and T-shirt vendors, we will also be featuring (2) very special guests, including;
DJ Eric Rodgers (aka DJ Nevermind) – Eric Rogers created and operated the Paisley 5 & Dime since 1993.   Now working with Prince’s band members, photographers, artists, musicians and former employees to bring their projects directly to the fans.  Eric is also on the board of directors for the Minneapolis Sound Museum (a non-profit dedicated to educating about all the history of musicians from North Minneapolis.) *Eric will be Spinning records throughout the day!
Photographer – Allen Beaulieu began his photography career in fashion doing photo shoots for local department stores.   Bernadette Anderson, mother of Andre Cymone, had some images from “Shades Of Blackness” that Allen had photographed.  Prince was living in their basement at the time, saw the photos and immediately called Allen Beaulieu for a 3-Day photo shoot.   Allen subsequently became Prince’s own personal photographer and shot album covers, record sleeve art, posters, live concerts, backstage and personal photos for Prince as he developed his career up to the rise of Purple Rain.   Allen’s iconic images are seen on the covers of “Dirty Mind”, “Controversy”, the inner sleeves of “1999” and several other iconic images including one of Allen’s personal favorites he calls “smoke” that is included here.  Allen Beaulieu’s work was published in a comprehensive book titled “Before The Rain” and also had a large gallery exhibit at the Minnesota Historical Society.  *Allen will be on-site signing prints/books from noon-2pm!
