The West Coast’s premiere all 7″ vinyl monthly event! ‘The 45 Sessions’ was started by DJ Platurn of the Oakland Faders in February of 2010. Having traveled all over, worked with Red Bull, Amoeba Records, Puma, and many more, the Sessions has proven to be much larger than its 7″ circumference. Little records, big sound — all 45s, all night! Come see what the hype is all about.
