Unite inspiring artists with curiously minded listeners

Rough Trade NYC

The over 10,000 square foot record store “Rough Trade” has opened in New York in November 2013 inside a former film prop warehouse, in addition to the two famous existing shops in London. Equipped with nooks and hanging headphones for CD sampling, the store serves as a meeting place for music enthusiasts who can browse over 20,000 titles, or even play ping pong. Rough Trade also serves as a venue for concerts around the clock, equipped with a sufficiently large stage and seating on two levels behind the music shelves. The concept for this great, busy store:

„We happily ignore media and industry analyst stereotyping of music „consumption“, focusing instead on the reality, providing independent thinkers with independent music, in an independent fashion. “
