Record Store Day 2012 - events roundup
Edwyn Collins, Human Don't Be Angry and more to play live in support of independent music shops
In these days of digital piracy, the life of the indie record store seems constantly overshadowed with doubt; thankfully, the annual Record Store Day reminds what a pleasure can be hand from flicking through dusty vinyl LPs and just enjoying music in the company of others.
Monorail in Glasgow have the most exciting line-up so far – Edwyn Collins, Human Don’t Be Angry, Organs Of Love, Snowgoose and Dead Flamingos are all set to play throughout the day, in addition to an AED Records showcase. The Rubadub residents will be joined by house/garage/post-dubstep supremo Joy Orbison, while through in Edinburgh, Coda on the Mound features performances from Kris Drever, Bella Hardy and Rura.
In addition to the bricks-and-mortar vinyl outlets, a few music venues will be taking part in the fun. InsularisRecords.com are hosting a pop-up record shop at Nice’n’Sleazy, with live performances from Adam Stafford, Holy Mountain and few acts still to be announced, while Avalanche in Edinburgh are hosting a Record Store Day after party at Electric Circus.
Various venues worldwide, Sat 21 Apr.
