7 p.m.-midnight Friday, May 1 | Uncle Tony’s Donut Shoppe, 703 N. Orange Ave. | eldonutshoppe.com
Though the newest entry to the city’s list of vinyl purveyors technically opened a few weeks ago, tonight is their real, full-fledged inaugural soiree. The shop caters to the hard-core collector, offering deep cuts and first pressings with an ear toward the funk, soul and jazz sections of the musical spectrum. To highlight that, the guys who run the shop have invited Atlanta’s DJ Kemit (formerly of the ’90s conscious-rap collective Arrested Development) to bring his all-time favorite records for an illuminating set bound to mix up genres and keep the walls thumping. Definitely get there early, though: Local DJs Brooklyn Dusty Fingers and Spreadsheets spin their best pre-party jams while free food and refreshments are served.
