Darkside Records & Gallery is Poughkeepsie, NY’s newest and only independent record shop, founded in January 2011 by three friends who felt the need to bring the physical record store back to the community. Their 2,000 square foot shop offers music from virtually every genre, including both new and used LP’s, CD’s, 45’s and even cassettes. The wall space above the racks is utilized as a gallery space for both regional and not-so-local artists to showcase their creative works, with a small opening reception held each month to kick off the newest show.

Being a part of their community, they’ve also featured in-store performances and meet-and-greets with both regional and national acts such as Chimaira, Warbringer, Shai Hulud, We Are The In Crowd, Dead Empires and Take One Car, just to name a few. They have also begun hosting a bi-weekly open mic night open to anyone who has something to share!
