Doser: Hydrogen Plus Records
Founder: Patrick Schwer
Why we love him: As the world becomes increasingly reliant on digital everything, Schwer sees vinyl by classic and emerging artists as the perfect companion to mp3. His vision is to create a community-based record store and art space that focuses the energy of the recent, nation-wide vinyl revival. You can peruse his extensive collection at his brand-spanking new storefront in South Loop soon – he opens in a couple weeks.
Products: New and used 7″ and 12″ vinyl, EPs and LPs
Dose appearances: August 14, September 25 and counting.
