Party Pick: Headline Records' 20th Anniversary Party at Lethal Amounts

Party Pick: Headline Records' 20th Anniversary Party at Lethal Amounts
Headline Records

We’re not sure why Headline Records gets left off most “best record store” blog lists these days. Perhaps because it’s not a trendy new “all-vinyl” shop? Nonetheless, the punk-music emporium deserves props as both a beacon for a bygone era (when Melrose was cool) and for keeping punk rock’s spirit alive.

It’s been 20 years since owner Jean-Luc Gaudry opened his first shop on Melrose, which famously hosted raucous punk gigs. When it moved to a smaller place, the in-stores stopped, but Headline never stopped celebrating hardcore and heavy music, imported and domestic, whether vinyl, CD and collector’s merch.

Marking 20 years of mayhem, Headline’s throwing a party featuring an exhibit of original flyer art (250-plus pieces) from the store’s infamous gigs, all for sale at Lethal Amounts gallery. You can bet your combat boots that whatever else they have in store will make for a brutal bash.
