Record Store Day roundup


Record Store Day

Record Store Day takes place on the 17th of April – it’s the day we celebrate and support our local independent record stores around the world and remember what’s so great about them no matter where we live. There will be live in-store performances, once-off compilations and limited releases – all that jazz (without the actual jazz probably). Here’s a roundup of what’s happening or for sale in the 15 Irish stores participating. I’ll add more before Saturday, as I get it. You can follow Irish Record Store Day on Twitter. Full info below – feel free to add to it via the comments.
