Any vinyl lover or music addict in Kutztown is familiar with Young Ones Records on Whiteoak street. Since opening their doors in Kutztown in 1990, they have set about their business not only selling mainstream vinyl and CD’s, but promoting local bands by hosting in-store performances and selling merchandise. “I consider that a role of an indie record store,” says owner Caecilia Holt. Young Ones features an expansive selection of local music that grows and changes each time they have a new band in to perform.
A current goal the owners have for Young Ones is to see the store grow a performance venue and feature more signed bands. With the performance by the Front Bottoms this past winter and an appearance by Chuck Mosely (former front-man of Faith No more) scheduled this summer, that goal is certainly within reach.
