Joel Stones is bringing back his record store Tropicalia in Furs from NYC to Los Angeles for a 2-day popup shop at Rappcats!
Sat & Sun, May 21-22
5636 York Blvd,
Los Angeles CA 90042
“I will bring tons of Brazilian records, 45s, LPs, some jazz, funk, soul, prog, psych, garage, boxes of 45s with good French, Turkish, African, Northern Soul, tons of crazy stuff.”
Tropicalia in Furs, housed in a small storefront in the LES, NYC, was a record store like no other: a spot to buy rarities, hear psychedelic sounds and engage in unparalleled chit chat with owner Joel Stones, a cadre of open minded individuals and celebrities from the Beastie Boys to Elijah Wood. The shop closed in 2013. We worked with Rappcats to host a popup event with Tropicalia in Furs last summer and sold out of every record. Now Joel is bringing back the store for a second helping – and promises to fly to Brasil to bring fresh stock the week before the event.
