WaxTrax! to reopen store for one day onlyThe legendary WaxTrax! Records store will return for one day and one day only in Chicago on June 15. The pop-up store will be located in the Chicago music venue Metro, open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., following a release show by WaxTrax!’s first newly signed act Cocksure. WaxTrax! will also be offering special deals on the store day, including free grab bags for the first 40 customers, with one bag containing a ticket to a special event later in the year. “This is an opportunity to remember the store and label’s history and celebrate the new release by doing something fun and memorable,” says Julia Nash, daughter of original label co-founder Jim Nash. “As many of you can recall, the original Lincoln Ave. store atmosphere was incredibly vibrant and full of life. If we can capture even a fraction of that original energy and fire from my dad and Dannie (Flesher), this will be wonderful event. As with the original store, we hope people will use the day to just hang out, meet up, see old friends, have a drink, and listen to some great music from that special era.”
