Loveland's Colemine Records label is taking a day trip to Over-the-Rhine to host a Taproom Record Fair with Rhinegeist.
From noon-5 p.m. July 23, more than 10 vinyl vendors from across the Tri-State — including Colemine and its associated shop, Plaid Room Records — will be set up in the brewery, slinging their wares. A release promises "niche record selections," along with other entertainment.
There will be a DJ spinning old-school records, a Jet Black Vintage pop-up, Mazunte tacos and plenty of draft beer.
"(I'm excited) for everyone to come down and get to interact with all the other amazing local record stores. We're so lucky to have such a wealth of amazing shops to choose from, so having them all together is really gonna be something else," says Terry Cole, owner of Colemine, in a release. "Overall, I'm just so excited to bring people together over great soul music, great digs and just a great time."
How the Soul Funk Label Colemine and Plaid Room Record Store Landed in Loveland: Terry Cole opened Plaid Room Records in 2015 with his younger brother, Bob. Cole has been surrounded by vinyl his entire life. And he’s not only selling records — he’s also been making them for his on-the-rise label Colemine
Cole founded Colemine Records in 2007, with a focus on the tradition of ’60s/’70s soul and funk, as well as the genres' numerous variations and crossbreeds. Colemine also houses Karma Chief Records for artists outside the soul genre and Remind Records, a "reissue imprint, specializing in releasing LPs and 45s that are either very rare or in some cases, never before released."
Cole and his brother, Bob, opened the Plaid Rooms Records shop in 2015.
