Vinyl Envy is an independent, vinyl record store as well as an all-ages live music venue with a capacity of 80. In our store we stock both new and used vinyl records (10,000+Lps) in addition to a good selection of local vinyl/CD & cassette releases. As a live music venue we have hosted music from across the globe, including London, UK, Tasmania, Portland, Baltimore, L.A. and all across Canada. Our musical tastes include alt and indie rock, jazz, blues, soul, hip hop, folk, reggae & electronica. For musicians who are looking to do “Release Parties”, we are your best option. As a band or solo artist etc, what better place to perform your new music than in front of a small crowd of friends and followers in a record store. We also host a 2 day music showcase known as “Psych and Soul Weekend” at The Roxy Theatre, a charming 200+ seat authentic movie house erected in the 1950’s. This year event takes place on May 10-11th. We also help curate and sponsor Blender Night at Lucky Bar in Victoria every month as well as promote larger events outside of our store on a regular basis.
Our mission is to celebrate local talent whenever possible, but we also love playing host to touring bands passing through town. If you have a project or a private event that you'd like to talk to us about, please get in touch, we’d be happy to host you.
