Song, by Toad, Gerry Loves Records and VoxBox; Record Store Day 2012
Record Store Day is a very, very good thing. Getting folk down to their local record shop in the hope they will support it all year round. This year marks the first ever RSD for Song, by Toad neighbours Vox Box Music. The shop is a real labour of love for Darren and George who run it, and they have always been more than happy to stock anything from the label. They are good people and their shop consistently has an amazing and eclectic selection.
To celebrate their first ever RSD our pals at Gerry Loves Records and I have organised a wee event for the day.
The shop is going to open as usual at 10.30am and will have a very small selection of exclusives for you to get your hands on, so you may as well try your luck. Then at 3.00pm we are going to have our very own Neil Pennycook from Meursault singing some songs from his forthcoming Melanie tribute album. After that we are going to head across the street to a secret location on the same street to see Gerry Loves band and new FatCat signing PAWS play a full blown set at 4.00pm
It’s going to be a great day. Booze, food, records and music. It’s a no brainer so do pop along.
