In other record store news, there has been a ma­jor change-up at a beloved Park­dale mu­sic shop.

Head­bangers were surely ner­vous when record store Park­dale Plat­ters closed up at the end of July. It’s al­ways sad to lose a record store, but what about the other record store in­side it, Stained Class Records, the city’s only heavy metal spe­cialty shop?

As it turns out, the bins at Stained Class won’t be empty for long. Though the shop has been closed for a cou­ple of weeks, it will re­open in the same space at 1614 Queen West. Only now it will be a record-store-within-a-vin­tage-shop, as Black Di­a­mond Vin­tage is set to move in. The store prom­ises “rock and roll goods outta Toronto,” which seems like as good a fit as any.

Stained Class will re­turn this Satur­day (Septem­ber 2) with a book sign­ing by metal heavy­weight Dan Lilker (of Bru­tal Truth, Nu­clear As­sault, S.O.D., An­thrax, Ven­omous Con­cept, The Rav­en­ous and, some­how, oth­ers).

The event runs from 2-3:30pm. Lilker’s bi­og­ra­phy, Per­pet­ual Con­ver­sion by Dave Hofer, will be avail­able for pur­chase, as will ev­ery­thing else. face­­class­records
