According to the number crunchers at Nielsen SoundScan, the sales of vinyl records slowly but steadily have increased over the past six years. That probably comes as no surprise to the cadre of wax-loving DJs behind Classic Album Thursdays, because they arguably have helped beef up those numbers by scooping up reissues of old platters to add to their expansive collection. A rotating lineup of a half-dozen local selectors — including Mr. P-Body, DJ Dana, and Kate Scratch Fever — staff the weekly record-listening party that takes place inside Old Town Whiskey at The Saguaro, 4000 North Drinkwater Boulevard in Scottsdale. "It's really about playing cool records and bringing out people who like listening to vinyl," says Al Page, who's scheduled to drop the needle on some classic platters along with The Heavy Hand on Thursday, August 23. The spin session starts at 8:30 p.m. Admission is free. Call 480-970-4444.
