Record Store Day 2013 at Slow Boat!

After celebrating Record Store Day in 2012 at Slow Boat the only way we know how – bigger, better, brighter – there is only one way forward for the 2013 event; EVEN BIGGER AND BETTER AND BRIGHTER STILL!!!

We are absolutely chuffed to announce that our instore performances on the day - this year, the 20th of April - will feature NZ music stalwart and legendary founder member of The Clean, Mr David Kilgour!!!

We will also have a performance from touring US bluesman Watermelon Slim (who has performed alongside John Lee Hooker, Champion Jack Dupree, Robert Cray and Bonnie Raitt!), and rounding out the lineup (fresh from their successful support slot with Rodriguez) will be local folksy trio Eb & Sparrow.

We have also done our darndest to ensure we get hold of a generous swag of precious, limited Record Store Day releases – a full list of releases here: (please note, not everything will be available on the day!)

We know that you love records and music as much as we do, so it means a great deal to us to be able to share with you a day of celebration for what independent record stores and Record Store Day stand for in this day and age – for freedom of thought and expression, and for the sheer unbridled power of rock’n’roll. Viva la independence!!! Viva la vinyl!!! And – please stay tuned to our website, Facebook page, and Twitter for times and further announcements.
