Rough Trade Store Is Coming To America

    After years of being the absolute coolest record store in the world, UK mainstay Rough Trade records has announced that it is finally going to be opening an American outpost. Rough Trade NYC is going to open later this year, sometime in the fall, and it will be part record store, part performance venue. The owners say that they’ll let the NY store become its own thing, and it’s up to NYC customers to decide what the store will be like. Whatever that means. [DS]
