It’s that time of the year again when all vintage-lovers come out and rejoice for record stores. This year, Fred Perry is joining into the celebrations for the whole month of April. Available at Fred Perry and its selected record stores, customers will receive one of four Record Store Day themed tote bags. Designed by international and Singaporean designers, these bags will be given complimentary with any purchase.
An island-wide scratch and win contest has been launched across the twelve record stores as well. With any purchase of $50 or more, you can stand a chance to win an Audio-Technica Turntable, a Fred Perry X-mini™ speaker or Fred Perry vouchers.
The fun doesn’t end there though, in fact the real party will take place on the 18th and 19th of April. For two nights, Fred Perry collaborates with homegrown creatives, Singapore Community Radio for pre Record Sale Day music takeovers. The 18th will feature an Indie Disco Riot mix and the 19th a Reggae Funk mix. You will not want to miss the regional and local DJs spinning or the compelling visuals by Empyreal. The line-up consists of Xes Xes Loveseat, Kidg, Ginette Chittick, Cherie Ko, Ruud, Ras Irie, Rah and Drem. Singapore Community Radio will be live-streaming the shows and online viewers will stand a chance to win Albert Hammond Jr.’s and AWOLNATION’s new vinyl releases.
These gigs will be organized by Subculture Live, Fred Perry’s effort to create unconventional gig experiences. Being a brand that has had close ties to music and street style since the 1950s, Fred Perry and Subculture Live are sure to bring us the best local acts and a one in a kind online experience.
