This Saturday, Jan. 14,  Darkside Records in Poughkeepsie will be celebrating two very special anniversaries.  It is their sixth anniversary as a business, and their first anniversary in their new location at 611 Dutchess Turnpike.

If you have never been to Darkside Records, you don't know what you are missing. Darkside is one of the Hudson Valley's largest independent music shops with a 6,000 square foot sales floor, a hi-fi/stereo room with new and used turntables and audio equipment, and a live music stage for touring and local acts and events.  It's a whole lot more than just a record store.  They also have awesome novelty gifts for the music lover in your life.  The anniversary celebration will include a store-wide sale on music and movies, giveaways, live music, food and  much more.

Congratulations Darkside Records!  And thanks for keeping independent music stores alive in the Hudson Valley.  For more information about this Saturday's celebration, visit the website at
