Record Store day is this Saturday 16th of April. Most record stores in London have their stock ready mostly with re-presses and a few new releases, to be honest, I prefer to shop on normal days because that day is super chaotic, however, I always end up buying at least one or two records.
Oh, and did I mention that there will be loads of in-store events and afterparties? if you haven’t decided yet, let me give you a hand where to go this Saturday.
I can’t deny that this is my favorite, I’ve been at their Record Store Day the last three years and each year is better than the last. Get there early if you want to buy records to avoid disappointment, a part of the stock list has already been published. Last year was AMAZING between the special guest were Dj Andres, Four Tet, and Todd Edwards.
Their 2016 event is out but the lineup won’t be announced until that day, but no worries remember is Phonica!
New and Vintage stock will be available at the store. The lineup is headed by Paranoid London plus the Crustcondctor will be serving one of the best pizza in London. Check out the Facebook Event for more info. The After party will be at Ruby’s Bar & Lounge.
