Apop Records Celebrates Its Fifth Birthday with Shows, Movies, Record Store Day

Share on Nextdoor
It's almost hard to believe that Apop Records (2831 Cherokee Street) has had a St. Louis storefront since 2007. Fittingly, the experimental record store/shop was ahead of the Cherokee Street renaissance curve -- in fact, the record store arguably kickstarted the resurgence. To celebrate its second Lou birthday (and fifth overall), Apop is planning several events in the coming weeks.

First up is a show on Saturday, April 11, featuring Raglani, Human Quena Orchestra, Wasteland Jazz Unit and Cincinnati's Burning Star Core and an 8mm film by Jeremy Kannapell. The latter also designed the following poster, which is awe-inspiring and intricate in person.

On Thursday, April 16 and Thursday, April 23, the store is holding movie night. The former date will feature a showing of Song of the Loon -- a film billed as the "world's first psychedelic gay western" -- while Neil Young's Human Highway, the visual companion to his bizarro-electro LP Trans, is airing the following week. Both start at 7:30 p.m.

And last but not least are performances centered around Record Store Day! Apop promises cheap turntables and performances starting at 2 p.m. from: Medical Tourists, Bikini Acid, Maximum Effort, Lonely Procession, Uranium Heist and Pink Sock.This joins the other festivities at Vintage Vinyl and Euclid Records.
