So maybe you just bought your first record player? Or maybe you're a total vinyl head? We grew up around albums and turntables, which is why we're so excited to tell you about our third book, BOOZE AND VINYL, which drops on April 17, 2018 from Running Press. Yep, just in time for Record Store Day (Saturday, April 21)!
Because we know you want to be the first to peer into these pages and plan YOUR listening party for spring, we've got some delicious offers for you and plenty of news to peruse. Scroll on, friends, scroll on!
Booze & Vinyl Giveaways and Pre-Sales Orders
If you want to pre-order a copy of Booze & Vinyl, check out our new book website: boozeandvinyl.com. We've got some dreamy incentives, and we'll be eternally grateful for your pre-orders since early orders matter a lot in Author Land.
Plus, our website has some sneak peeks, like photos by our stellar photographer Jason Varney, along with an author Q&A we put together to tell you more about this project. Our favorite albums? Our favorite drinks? You'll find them all on the new site. Plus, we posted our list of the 70 albums in the book. Go out and grab 'em from your favorite neighborhood record store!
Our publisher just posted this amazing giveaway for a copy of our book + a Crosley turntable. Fingers crossed for you!
Booze & Vinyl Book Tour
We're also thrilled to announce that we're going on tour in April with Crosley Turntables! We'll be selling books and giving away merch from their incredible mobile record store van. Maybe you saw it last year when they toured with Dogfish Head?
We're really stoked to work with Crosley, and we're lining up some awesome brands to serve booze when we arrive in different cities between Philadelphia and Nashville! Check out tour page for a list of book tour dates and cities. We can't wait to see you in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Louisville, and Nashville! Our goal in each city is to set up and support vinyl lovers at a record store each day, then roll up to meet cocktail lovers at a local bar each night.
If you want to join the party, give us a shout! We've got a turntable to give away in each city, plus we've got books to sign for you and cocktails to shake and stir.
Come Out to Meet Us!
We're excited to get on the road this spring and summer, especially after writing three books together in the last three years. (Read: we've been locked in our houses too long!) If you like the idea of what we're up to, please reach out no matter where you live. We'll probably hit the road again to visit our vinyl head friends in other parts of the country!
We've got a whole cocktail trilogy to share with you and yours. To follow our journey, find us on Istagram @withthedarlingtons. xoxo
