Record Store Day this Saturday 19th April

Is this coming Saturday 19th April  which is of course Easter Saturday.
For those of you keen on any of the titles on the RSD list .......falling at Easter at least allows for an early night on Good Friday!
It seems from what we hear that people may arrive at the shop well ahead of opening time which is 9am on the day.
Confirmations of titles we expect are ongoing so keep checking our Website RSD page up to the day, this will be updated as we go to the day.
For tips and advice, again visit the RSD page. Although there are more releases this year but it seems that the amount of each release distributed to each Record shop is tighter than ever so be aware that we may only get one or two of most releases listed on our Website, this will apply to all stores Nationally and not just us. There will be exceptions were multiples will be possible. So really the tip is set the alarm clock and get to the shop ASAP to avoid missing out on that title you are after. The shop will remain open until 4.30pm whilst the other activities over the road at the Daniel Owen Community Centre are in full swing.
The plan for the day is to open the Record Fair about 9.30am to give those who called at the shop a chance to call in nice and early. At about 10.45 the Film shows will start upstairs at the Venue around 10.45am in the MOVIE ROOM and DJ's and Live Bands will play from 11am in the MUSIC ROOM,another room will house Merchandise, Art and Hi-Fi demos by RICHER SOUNDS. All in all should be a great day so hope you can make it. The nominal (usual) 50p charge for the Record Fair covers everything on the day.
One last tip for those visiting the shop early is to keep an eye on the Weather and come prepared in case its chilly (or wet...hopefully not) . RUBENS cafe should be down at some point with some free drinks samples and Meat n Eat a few doors up do early Breakfast sandwiches etc....We are also very pleased that Meilir will be playing live outside the shop at about 8.30am ahead of his FOCUS WALES and GREEN MAN FESTIVAL appearances.There will be a few FREEBIES for the first customers!
So hopefully see you next week at some point and thanks for your continued support throughout the year!
