Record Store Day on Berwick Street 20th April 2013

Berwick Street is in the thick of London’s haven for vinyl-heads hosting the largest concentration of independent record stores, to name a few: Sister Ray, Reckless Records, Sounds of the Universe and Phonica. Saturday 20th April celebrates Record Store Day: the joining of hands of London’s elite force of independent record stores to celebrate the culture of crate digging.

On the day there will be exclusive vinyl and CD releases from the stores accompanied by an eclectic fusion of live music and DJ sets. A stage will be positioned at the Berwick Street/D’Arblay Street junction with live bands and artists performing between 12pm and 7pm. Confirmed acts include Brainiac 5, Steve Mason, Frank Turner, Matthew E White, Smoke Fairies, Gabrielle Aplin and Wire

Berwick Street Market will also feature a musical history experience provided by The Museum of Soho and a vinyl fair. There will also be a screening at 75 Berwick Street of ‘The Last Shop Standing;’ which charts the rise, fall and rebirth of the independent record shop.

Oliver Spencer Soho will be joining the celebrations. Our store on 81 Berwick Street will be hosting live acoustic sets from 1pm-7pm from Simon Lord and the critically acclaimed cult hero Robyn Hitchcock. In addition, there will be DJ sets from The Kramford Look, Wonderfulsound, Deke Tres Reyes, and Lisbonne. A selection of vinyl from the featured artists will be on sale in-store.

Amidst the celebrations, it will be business as usual in-store with our full SS13 collection on offer.

Sunshine (allegedly confirmed)!
