Celebrate Independent Music Stores Nationwide – Record Store Day 2016

recordstoredayWith only ten hours to go before the big day many vinyl fanatics will have already prepared their plans for record domination. Tomorrow morning (Saturday 16th April) will be thrown into a whirl of chaotic vinyl hunting, an abundance of quality records, and hipsters to celebrate this year’s annual Record Store Day.

Over 20 independent music stores will open their doors to Queensland’s music fanatics for the nationwide celebration. Adam Brand, one of the Record Store Day ambassadors, will make an appearance to perform and promote the event and it’s importance in the Australian music industry at 10am in Westfield Carindale. While Treasures 4 You in Stones Corner are offering irresistible discounts, Tym’s Guitars in the Valley will be playing host to six live bands (national and international). Doors will open at 10 am with the first band kicking off at noon.

Run by The Australian Music Retailers Association, Record Store Day was founded to support independent music stores around Australia. Taking place in every capital city as well as regional areas around the country with in-store appearances, signings, promotions, limited edition releases, and in-store sales, the day brings in promising waves of supporters on a national scale.
