JetBlue + Other Music to Host Pop-Up Record Shop + Music Showcase at JFK Airport
Record Store Day seems to expand and get more ambitious year after year, but this time, JetBlue is taking it to the skies — or at least to the terminal.
The airline is partnering with New York record store Other Music to host "a special music showcase and pop-up record shop as a precursor to Record Store Day" on April 17 at JetBlue’s Terminal 5 in New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport, according to a press release.
The "Live from T5" showcase is set to feature performances from soul singer Elle King, pop-punk man Kevin Devine and indie pop group Caveman. The Pop-Up Record Shop Experience from Other Music will have records for sale and "turntable listening stations," as well as prizes and giveaways.
The Pop-Up Record Shop Experience will last from 9AM-6PM; Elle King will perform at 12PM, Kevin Devine will go on at 3PM and Caveman will cap the show at 5PM.
"Live from T5" concerts have been held since 2008 and "are designed to enhance the overall customer experience and are available exclusively to JetBlue ticketed customers," according to the press release. Past performers include Icona Pop, Emeli Sandé, Ryn Weaver, Aloe Blacc, Allen Stone and Vance Joy, and others.
JetBlue and Other Music's event is just the latest in immersive Record Store Day happenings: Third Man Records will host Third Man Recording Service, which promises the opportunity to record a song "in the exact same way Elvis did in his first session at Sun Records in Memphis back in June of 1953.”
