FUTURE THINGS ARE COMING >>>

Weekly Volcano recently reported that Rocket Records owner Steve Gaydich lost his lease to a Mixed Martial Arts Academy that moved in next door and will expand into his record store space. Gaydich's last day of business at the corner of Sixth and Proctor will be April 30.

Well, now we have some good news. Gaydich has just signed the lease for Rocket Record's new location at 3823 sixth Ave in Tacoma, just down the road from his current location. Opening day will be Saturday, June 1.

But I'm ahead of myself, before we can celebrate the new location, we have to celebrate Record Store Day - an industry-created "holiday" meant to draw attention to the endangered species of brick-and-mortar record stores. At Rocket Records it's a triple-whammy with Record Store Day finds, an in-store live performance and deeply discounted moving sale items - up to 40 percent off.

Heavy-hitters Mico De Noche, Valis and Argonaut will send Gaydich off with style. I'd like to see the MMA students when they hear Argonaut's "The Battle of Pig Hill" blaring through the wall.

Anyway, plenty of reasons to get down to Rocket Records this Saturday people. Just make sure you bring your friends, earplugs and cash.

Rocket Records, Saturday, April 20, 3 p.m., all ages, no cover, 3843 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, 253.756.5186
