Our latest podcast comes from Josh LaRue of Breakaway Records (and formerly of Mice Parade).
"Breakaway just celebrated its 5 year anniversary this summer,
and we look forward to many more years of digging up the best 45s, LPs, turntables & other audio gear for our customers.
Breakaway was started by Austin native Gabe Vaughn (aka Secondliner),
and was originally located in east Austin. Gabe hosts / DJs Austin's amazing R&B nite 'Second Sunday Sock Hop'
as well as the long-running Funk & Soul party known as 'Soul Happening!'
The shop has been on North Loop, in north-central Austin, for 3 years now and business has been steadily growing.
Denton, Texas native, longtime DC resident, and Mice Parade alumnus Josh LaRue (aka jLa) came on board 2 1/2 years ago and he and Gabe have been slingin' records and gear, DJ'ing, putting on events, making mixes, and generally helping provide Austin with good music on vinyl ever since!
Josh holds down several regular DJ gigs in Austin, including a couple at the fabulous Hotel San Jose, and runs Soul Happening! along with Gabe. When in Austin, come check us out!! Mix CDs available by mail-order.
CDs of the mixes are available for sale ($12 including shipping US, $20 including shipping international).
Breakaway is an ALL VINYL record store specializing in used and new sounds from the 20s up through the current, with a heavy focus on 50s, 60s and 70s music of all types.
We offer thousands of LPs and 45s, spanning the genres of Soul, R&B, Rock, Garage, Psych, Punk, Jazz, Blues and more.
We also sell quality vintage record playing equipment, such as turntables and receivers, as well as needles and accessories of all kinds.
