Austin Record Convention celebrates 38 years this weekend

Vinyl records have made a comeback in recent years as music lovers re-discover the sound that vinyl offers. 

Now, vinyl lovers can celebrate as the Austin Record Convention returns for the 38th year. 

"People like to have a piece of that history in their collection. When you put on a record you have a chance to sit with the music." said Nathan Hanners, the organizer of the Austin Record Convention.  "I think people just miss the feeling and miss the tactfulness of the record." said Hanners. 

The convention started in 1981 and usually runs twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Vinyl's have become so popular that they are on track to outsell CD's for the first time in 33 years, according to the Rolling Stone. 

Over 300 dealers from across the US and Europe will converge at the Palmer Events Center in Austin to sell over a million records.

CD's, cassettes, and other music memorabilia will also be on sale as the convention center transforms into the "largest indoor record store" in the US. 

The admission price is five dollars and runs the weekend of November 9th.
