Saturday the 22nd of April brings the tenth annual International Record Store Day, and, as per, we here at the ‘Boat have lined up a stellar bunch of entertainments and activities for you to help us celebrate another year of independence!
We will be doing our best to bring you an array of the Record Store Day limited vinyl releases from the various companies, as well as our first RSD in-house release being celebrated instore!!
The festivities will run a little like this:
STORE OPENS; 9am
2pm: Instore performance from ‘ambient dream folk’ group French For Rabbits. The five piece group, who have just released their second album “The Weight Of Melted Snow”, to sensational reviews, have garnered international interest, having toured with Agnes Obel, and been featured in US TV series “The Vampire Diaries”. We are thrilled to see what they offer up, especially following an extensive national tour, and they will stick around to sign copies of their CD.
3pm: Instore performance from ‘Pan-generational Wellington supergroup’ TEETH, celebrating the release of their self-titled debut album, available as a numbered, strictly limited edition CD through our own Slow Boat Records label.
The group, featuring The Phoenix Foundation’s Lukasz Buda and Tom Callwood, together with ‘legendary drummer’ Anthony Donaldson and David Long (Mutton Birds) have a psychedelic rock sound, with some dazzling guitar interplay and a solid and crunchy rhythm section – it will be a beautiful thing!
ALSO: We are taking pre-orders for signed copies of the TEETH album, at a special Slow Boat RSD price – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your copy!!
STORE CLOSES; 5pm
There will also be a raffle, and some spot prize giveaways.
We would also encourage you to pay a visit to our near neighbours Rough Peel Music, and Newtown’s Death Ray Records…
