“Vintage” Live Footage From Vintage Vinyl


Stuff from like ten years ago counts as vintage, right?

If you were lucky enough to grow up in New Jersey (that’s right, I said ‘lucky enough’. Deal with it!) then you were also lucky enough to be near the incredible Vintage Vinyl record store. The store, which is just 2 years shy of celebrating its 40th anniversary, is chock full of new and used CDs, vinyl, DVDs, Blu-Rays, and probably a few other forms of media. Rock, metal, punk, and all the sub-genres are well-represented along with a healthy dose of local music. One doesn’t just visit Vintage Vinyl, you time travel because minutes slowly become hours spent pawing through their selection. Their tag line, ‘From the obvious to the obscure’ is spot-on.

Another great thing about Vintage Vinyl is that they have in-store appearances and concerts by all sorts of bands and musicians. One of the treats about walking around the store is seeing the framed pictures of all the people that have performed. It’s quite the eclectic mix as they’ve had bands ranging from the likes of Ozzy Osbourne and Dio to Type O Negative and Gwar to, uh, Dramarama.

Lucky for us, some of those performances have been taped and uploaded to Youtube. I’ve gathered together a bunch of the metal and metal-adjacent band sets (there’s plenty of non-metal stuff on their channel if you’re interested) for your enjoyment. Sound and footage quality varies, so consider this your warning.
