Record Store Day – Melbourne Saturday April 17th 2010

Do you remember the time before you pressed play?
Do you remember the time your music came on two sides?
Do you remember the time when bass was warm and fuzzy?
Do you remember the time when music was only 7 or 12” wide?
Do you remember the time of cover art?
Do you remember the time when music was bought from strange men with pony tails and beards?
Do you remember the time when music crackled?
Do you remember the time when music cost money?
Do you remember the time of the cue and stylus?
Do you remember the time bringing your music purchases home meant back ache rather than RSI?

It’s time to Celebrate Record Store Day Again!

RECORD STORE DAY was conceived by Chris Brown, as a celebration of
the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record
stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally. This
is one day that all of the independently owned record stores come
together with artists to celebrate the art of music.

White Rabbit Record Bar will have 20% off records, DJs playing “all day and all of the night” from 11am – 11pm and best of all beer, wine and cocktails.
