Polyvinyl Records will host a pop-up shop at the American Football House this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The American Football House is located at 704 W. High St. in Urbana.

The American Football House, deemed a cultural landmark on Google Maps, is famous within the Midwest emo scene for appearing on the cover of the band American Football’s 1999 self-titled album.

This past May, Polyvinyl and the band collaborated to purchase the house to protect it from developers and possible demolition.

According to Polyvinyl’s social media, the one-day-only pop-up shop will include vinyls, CDs and more from Polyvinyl Records artists. Donuts and coffee will be available in the morning.

About the Contributors
Hi! My name is Kiran Bond and I'm a junior majoring in journalism and minoring in informatics. I started writing for The Daily Illini in the features section back in early 2022, before coming to buzz. I'm very passionate about music and journalism, so buzz editor is an awesome position for me! In my free time, I'm usually doing something musical! I'm in the Women's Glee Club choir and I play piano and guitar. I'm also probably listening to Fall Out Boy or another pop-punk or post-hardcore band. For any inquiries, feel free to reach out to me at !

Hey, I’m Jacob! I am currently a sophomore in computer engineering with a minor in German. I started at The Daily Illini in Fall 2022 as a news reporter and staff photographer, and by Spring 2023, I had worked my way to photo editor. Between March 2023 and March 2024, I was the Managing Editor for Visuals, and I have since taken over as Editor-in-Chief. When I’m not taking pictures for The DI or for fun, I enjoy cooking, water sports and tending to my numerous houseplants. I’m excited to use my background in coding to further automate out workspace processes and to see the content that our team produces!
