I DIG PGH is back announcing the 1st Pgh Vinyl Convention (PVC)

Peace Pgh Ppl,

It's been a hectic year and
sadly the I DIG PGH blog has been neglected for much of 2011. The year isn't over yet though! We've got three plus months to get it together and continue educating you about the awesome records made by Pittsburgh People like most of you reading this right now. In addition to more interviews and blog features, plus more videos on the I DIG PGH Youtube page, we're gearing up for the first ever I DIG PGH sponsored event, which is a collaboration with Pittsburgh's own Mind Cure Records and it's being presented in association with the VIA Music & New Media Festival 2011.

Join us on Saturday October 8th, 2011 for the Pittsburgh's newest record show, Pgh Vinyl Convention (PVC). The event is going to be held at 162 Sheridan Ave. in East Liberty. It's on the second floor above Domino's Pizza. Here goes the official press release and flier. Email if you'd like to be a vendor.

Thanks for reading & supporting, J. Malls

Pittsburgh's newest record show, The Pittsburgh Vinyl Convention,
debuts on Saturday October 8th, 2011 in conjunction with VIA's second annual Music and New Media Festival in East Liberty.

VIA is # 5 on Resident Advisor's top ten festivals list – its debut last year boasted over 2,000 attendees – and this year promises to be ... even bigger.

More information about the VIA Music and New Media Festival 2011 is available at:

The Pittsburgh Vinyl Convention is at the same building as the VIA
festival – 6022 Broad Street in East Liberty – but is in its own space
with its own entrance at 162 Sheridan Street.


Saturday October 8th, 2011 9 am - 5 pm
162 Sheridan Ave. (East Liberty)
entrance directly to the right of Domino's Pizza

early admission 9 am - 10 am, $10
general admission 10 am - 5 pm, $3

This is an ALL AGES event appropriate for the entire family.

Dealers will load in around the corner at 6022 Broad St. There's an
elevator at this entrance. Parking for dealers is located around the
corner across from the main entrance on Sheridan Ave.
- Load in for dealers starts at 8 am
- Table fee is $40 per table (at this time there is no limit on number
of tables per dealer). A $20 down payment per table will be required
with the total balance due the day of the convention.

This is a new record show and we're aware that it's coming together
right under the wire, but there are perks:

In addition to the influx of people who will be traveling to
Pittsburgh for VIA, there is also another record show, the Pittsburgh
Record Fest, going on the same night (Saturday October 8th) at a
nearby venue, Belvedere's in Lawrenceville. There is no fee to be a
vendor at Pittsburgh Record Fest. These two shows falling on the same day offers unprecedented incentive for potential attendees and vendors to travel to Pittsburgh to buy/sell records. For more information about Pittsburgh Record Fest contact Jason
Baldinger ( or
Max Terasavro (
