This Saturday, November 10, Vertigo Music will be hosting live performances from local bands at the free all day event, Vertigo A-Go-Go. This event, as it has been in the past is open to the public and kid friendly. 

"This is our fourth annual fall party," store owner Herm Baker said. "We're just trying to celebrate our customers and the record store." 

Many see the event as a treat for regular customers of Grand Rapids' favorite record store. Invisible Mansion's frontman Mick Kyle states, "If Record Store Day was Christmas......Vertigo A-Go-Go is Easter." 

Much like Record store day, people young and old can come in and peruse the many different genres of music, grab a slice of pizza, or watch local musicians. Grand Rapids definitely has many non-traditional venues but Vertigo A-Go-Go is a unique event that gives back to the local musicians that make this town great. The event starts at 11:00 a.m. and goes until around 8:00 p.m. The lineup is as follows:

Noon: Kent County String Band
1:00: del Brutto
2:00: Jake Stilson 
3:00: Invisible Mansion
4:00: I Believe in Julio
5:00: Cangue League

Local DJ’s Spyder Murphy and Stax will spin between bands and at the end of the show. Come support the store that showcases local bands and carries a selection of local music! For more details check out
