Record Store Day at Slow Boat 2023!!!

Slow Boat is absolutely thrilled to announce our plans for Record Store Day 2023!! 

This year, in the spirit of unity, we have opted to run a shared event with our good pals and neighbours at 173 Cuba Street, the iconic Flying Nun Records  - mostly, so there aren't clashes for the instore entertainment.

And - we are pretty stoked with the entertainment we have managed to procure for you, thus;
12 midday - Tom Rodwell & Storehouse will join us for some "cult K'Road calypso-blues" - featuring wonderful Wellington-adjacent musicians Jeff Henderson and Chris O'Connor, we will have copies of Tom's terrific 2022 release "Wood And Waste" for sale.

2pm - Connan Mockasin - we are thrilled to be joined for a rare acoustic performance by Connan Mockasin (who, with his band Connan And The Mockasins, played an instore here way back in 2006!!)

We will open at the slightly earlier time of 9am (mostly so those who queue have a little less time to wait!), and I PROMISE to post a video of what RSD stuff we manage to get in to FaceBook/ Twitter. Please also note that the limited RSD vinyl will be restricted to ONE COPY of each release per customer, in the order in which you arrived at the store.

SO looking forward to it, can't WAIT - please, as ever, be kind and considerate to everyone around you, as the store is likely to be BUSY, and we want everyone to have a great day and a great experience - and - will update once Flying Nun have confirmed their instore times - STAY TUNED!!!

And finally - we will have limited stocks of the 'Slow Flying Boat Nun' poster on a tee shirt for sale only on the day! Get on it!!!
