If you’ve never heard of Record Store Day, there’s a perfectly good reason why. The event is held every April in celebration of independently owned record stores. Basically it’s to recognise shops that have resisted the draw of the mainstream culture. The event gets pretty huge in countries like the UK, Japan, and Australia, and thanks to Fred Perry, our local community is also getting a piece of the action.
Come 15 April, the fashion brand will be taking over industrial-styled coffee joint Chye Seng Huat Hardware for a party called Fred Perry Record Rally. One of the highlights of this show is a vinyl marketplace, so if you’re looking to score some rare finds, this is where you need to be. The marketplace will feature homegrown record store owners like Choice Cuts Goods + Coffee, Hear Records, KittyWu Records and The Analog Vault, so show them some love.
The event won’t be complete without some live tunes, so you can look forward to acts like Candy Says, DREM, These Brittle Bones and Ffion.
