DOWNTOWN MUSIC GALLERY Turns 26 and Celebrates Our Longevity!

This Monday, May 1st will be the 26th Anniversary of Downtown Music Gallery! That’s right, you heard right! We opened our doors on May 1st of 1991 in the East Village at 211 East 5th (between 2nd & 3rd Aves), having no idea how long we would last considering that there were upwards of a hundred record stores in Manhattan alone at that time. Now there are less than a dozen!?! We are in our third location (13 Monroe St in Chinatown), for eight years now, struggling to survive but still providing creative music for serious listeners from around the world with New Sounds: on CDs, records, DVDs, magazines, T-shirts and even a few cassettes. This, our e-mail newsletter goes out to some 5,000 subscribers every week with an occasional sales update as well. We still get visitors from around the world and we are open 7 days a week, from noon til 6pm, later on Sundays when we have our free in-store series. See the schedule below. Thanks to all who have supported us through our long journey!

To help us celebrate our long & winding history, present and future, we are sponsoring a series of celebrations in the next few months. Please come visit us and help us usher in another era of Creative Music! Thanks to all of the musicians who are helping us to celebrate with their music. Here is the current schedule and we are working on even more events to come:
