FatCat Records Podcast #89 - jLa Soul (Breakaway Records)
Our latest podcast comes from Josh LaRue of Breakaway Records (and formerly of Mice Parade).
"Breakaway all vinyl record store just celebrated its 5 year anniversary this summer, and we look forward to many more years of digging up the best 45's, LP's, turntables & other audio gear for our customers.
Breakaway was started by Austin native Gabe Vaughn (aka Secondliner), and was originally located in east Austin. Gabe hostd/DJs Austin's amazing R&B nite 'Second Sunday Sock Hop' as well as the long running Funk & Soul party known as 'Soul Happening!'.
The shop has been on North loop, in north-central Austin, for 3 years now and business has been steadily growing. Denton, Texas native, longtime DC resident, and Mice Parade alumnus Josh LaRue (aka jLa) came on board 2 1/2 years ago and he and Gabe have been slingin' records and gear, DJ'ing, putting on events, making mixes, and generally helping provide Austin with good music on vinyl ever since!
Josh holds down several regular DJ gigs in Austin, including a couple at the fabulous Hotel San Jose, and runs Soul Happening! along with Gabe. When in Austin, come check us out! Mix CDs available by mail order."
