Spring is here and Record Store Day 2018!
Kicking off on the 21st of April, we’re going to be greeting seasoned collectors and fresh new vinyl enthusiasts with a whole day celebrating the timeless format, armed with everything from special offers to live performances. All set up with us here at our balcony shop.
You just can’t properly celebrate vinyl without playing some tunes which is why we’ll be teaming up with Andrew from the excellent Sounds Like Radio who’ll be presenting a day of live broadcasts from inside our store.
Our turntables are going to be put to serious use at the hands of none other than local powerhouses Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals) & Don Leisure (Darkhouse Family) along with local DJs NOTSOEVER, Dj Enzine and The Kellys Staff. There’s going to be plenty of time pick through the racks with a backdrop of choice musical gems as well as enjoy some discussion on the good, the bad & the ugly sides of record collecting!
With free rein behind the decks, we’ll be treated to recordings that have been pivotal driving forces behind influential names in the music scenes of both Cardiff and the further afield while we browse through the thousands of singles & LPs we’re so lucky to have; what’s not to love?!
If that’s not enough fun for one day in the evening we’ll be teaming up with local watering hole and eatery The Blue Honey Night Café to bring you a whole night of vinyl greatness from some of Cardiff’s best music selectors.
In the meantime, we’re hoping you’ll join us in counting down the few remaining weeks leading up to Record Store Day as we dip our toes into the most cherished zones of our collections and share with you some thoughts & sounds from the worlds of Soul, Rock, Disco, Dance and much more!
