A well-rounded music collection is a sign of a well-rounded person, whereas a well-octagoned music collection means that you’ve been listening to stop signs on your turntable. Give the green light to recorded sound with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of used merchandise at Evolution Records, located on Kentucky Avenue. Music gurus can also use their Groupon credit towards admission at one of Evolution's live shows, a $3 cost.
The independent Evolution stimulates the Lakeland scene by selling an eclectic selection of both mainstream and underground music while providing an intimate venue for local and touring musicians to present their craft. Evolution's stock consists of T-shirts ($10+), CDs and vinyl records ($1+), and posters for music fans to coat their empty walls with artist admiration. Peruse Evolution's thousands of vinyls, from timeless classics, including The Beatles and AC/DC, to exciting new artists (though Bob Dole's ambient-metal album is currently sold out). Evolution hosts shows nearly every weekend, featuring artists advancing the cause of rock, hip-hop, folk, and more.
- For those of you who are getting into the vinyl revival, Evolution Records is the place for you. They’ve got all the classics as well as recent artists and releases. What’s even better, most of the newer releases (but not all) typically include a digital download of the music. Perfect for your iTunes and for the record player. – Josh Nederveld, YLakeland
