AKA MUSIC SITS cozily in Old City, and it is here that Josh Dubin, the special-projects coordinator in the city's Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, gets his vinyl- record-album and CD fix.
"I love the care that goes into the packaging," he says. "I like being able to put on a whole album without having to worry about Spotify commercials or buffering."
Dubin spearheads the "City Hall Presents" series, in which local artists perform at City Hall free of charge. He's also a liaison between artists and city officials.
This Sunday afternoon, however, he is a man on a mission, skimming through the store's CD section for the newest releases. Rachel Meadows, his girlfriend of 5 1/2 years, holds a thermos of coffee.
