Purdue Vinyl Club Provides Connection for Music Enthusiasts

Music is humanity’s shared language. No matter what mother tongue a song spins a story in, we are made to understand what lies at the heart of a melody. There are so many paths to take considering how to listen to a song, and many listeners choose to stream their music from online platforms. The convenience of this can be hard to beat, but many prefer to preserve an older form of listening. There is something charming about the crackles and pops of a vinyl record, the warmth and depth of the musical tones being translated from the record to reality. Purdue Vinyl Club is an organization dedicated to sharing this passion for vinyl records.

Purdue Vinyl Club hosted a crate digging event where members met up in the lobby of Stewart Center to shop through several local stores. Club members looked through Vons, Amused, Black Wax, and JL Records for new music to add to their collections.

Bryce Antone, a senior and member of the club, says “It’s a fun way to learn about new music and share your music taste with other people.” Antone is relatively new to collecting records and has been welcomed into the club with open arms.

“I listen to a lot of music and I was looking for more people to share music recommendations with,” Antone says. “I joined their discord last December and my first meeting was in January.”
