the new MAP of all of Melbourne’s INDEPENDENT RECORDS stores has now been updated.
The eighth edition of this essential guide to all of Melbourne’s culture pushers. From stores that only deal in Second Hand weirdness to ones that only deal in new vinyl, there is something for everyone.
We will be launching this new map, released just in time so that you know where to go on Record Store Day, on Wednesday The 19th. Come and see real life VINYL STORE CLERKS dj’ing RECORDS at SECTION 8 in the city.
We have an amazing pair of HEADPHONES kindly donated by our friends at Audio Technica to giveaway on the night. The night is free and easy, come down and pick up a map.
Gonna be massive! We have an all-star line-up playing live in the store from 2pm, along with DJs playing their favourite records from start to finish. We also managed to ‘expand’ Northside for one day only; we’ll be taking over the old Birdman Eating premises for the day – creating a super funky pop-up garage sale/jazz dance room/Northside funkmosphere Experience/chillout room/hectic dancefloor… We’ll have crate upon crate of vinyl goodness in the pop-up store – giving the dedicated diggers the chance to keep diggin’ while the bands blow up in the Northside Store. The pop-up store will also play host to a range of DJs throughout the day. Special guests appearing on the day include Remi, GL, Sex on Toast, Deep Street Soul and Man Made Mountain.
Check the poster for all the details, set times and info. You know we’ll have all the Record Day exclusives and Northside’s incredible $20 reissue crates! Amongst the special Record Store Day releases are a new 7″ from REMI (For Good feat. Sampa), New GL 7″, Sex on Toast reissue 7″, new Man Made Mountain 12″ and the brand new 7″ from Deeps Street Soul…. We’ve also teamed up with Roundtable Records for a special reissue of the 1975 Aussie jazz-funk-fusion classic, ARENA. Everyday is Record Store Day at Northside.
Saturday April 19 is Record Store Day, and a huge party at Northside Records. If you’re in Fitzroy on Record Store Day, come down to Northside for live appearances by Oscar Key Sung (2pm) and N’Fa Jones and crew + special guest Remi (3pm). Miss Goldie and Lance Ferguson will be providing tunes between bands and throughout the afternoon. Giveaways from Cake Wines and loads more surprises on the day. Support you Independent Record Stores! See the poster below for all the details.
Record Store Day is also be the official launch date of the 2014 Diggin’ Melbourne Map (Volume 5) – cop yours at Northside Records.
A big thanks from all here at Northside for coming down to celebrate International Record Store Day with us yesterday. The day was INCREDIBLE. We definitely felt loved! The big winner on the day was SOUL MUSIC (again).
Extra thanks to members of HIATUS KAIYOTE and THE PUTBACKS and also LANCE FERGUSON for all coming down and doing their thing. Here are some pics I took, feel free to send any more if you have them.
Fresh from performing at SxSW in America, HIATUS KAIYOTE, took their sweet soul sound up to NYC and around that area. They had some incredible shows there and we have to make sure that their home town provides them with the MOST FUN show yet! This could be the last time you see these guys doing a free show. Also they are going back overseas soon, so get in while you can. They will be playing a special show at 3PM on Saturday 20th.
