Which Rock Star Was Just Spotted in Princeton?
A celebrity was just spotted in Princeton. Yeah, blink-182 band member, Mark Hoppus, was in Princeton this week shopping for vinyl at the Princeton Record Exchange. Hoppus posted this on his Instagram account...
The Princeton Record Exchange, which has been around since 1980, is a must-visit for any music fan. Located just off of Nassau Street at 20 S. Tulane Street, the store sells new & used vinyl albums, CD's and DVD's. It's a must visit even for celebrities like Hoppus, apparently:

Mark was in town the day before his trip to the record store for a lecture/conversation at the McCarter Theater. The event, which was hosted by Princeton University’s Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students, was hosted by Steven Mackey of the William Shubael Conant Professor of Music.
Hoppus will return to the area with a new band he formed with Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low. The new band is called Simple Creatures and they'll be playing a sold-out show this Sunday in Philly.
A poll on Ranker.com places blink-182 is the 28th greatest artist of the 90's. And even though Hoppus has a new band, that doesn't mean blink-182 has broken up. In fact, they're headlining the Vans Warped Tour Anniversary Show, June 29th in Atlantic City. Click here to enter to win free tickets from PST.
