Halcyon the Shop has been Brooklyn’s hub for music since 1999. As one of New York’s long-standing record stores. Halcyon is about sharing a passion for music and instilling respect for vinyl culture in a wider community.
This video about the 2017 Record Store Day at Halcyon was made by the filmmaker Pablo Herrera (ELECTROFILMIKA), and captures the magic of this inspiring day dedicated to vinyl lovers. The Record Store Day is an annual event inaugurated in 2008 and held on one Saturday every April and every “Black Friday” in November to “celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store”. The day brings together fans, artists, and thousands of independent record stores across the world. A number of records are pressed specifically for Record Store Day, with a unique list of releases for each country, and are only distributed to shops participating in the event. The event began in the United States and remains headquartered there. Record Store Day has official international organizers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Australia, and Spain.
