Join Record Paradise to celebrate Record Store Day 2014 on Saturday 19th April at 15 Union Street, Brunswick.
Originally established in 1955 as an independent record store in St Kilda, it is now owned and operated by music lovers, Paul Allen and Renae Maxwell, who moved their 200,00 + records relocating the store to a fantastic warehouse in Brunswick just in time for Record Store Day in 2013.
The store will open from midday and remain open until 7pm, continuing their tradition of supporting local musicians pressing vinyl by hosting a huge party with stacks of new local and reissued vinyl, as well as many exclusive record store day releases.
It’s not all new vinyl and reissues though, as the Record Paradise Lucky 7″ Dip tradition can be found on the main counter each year. It’s simple you hand over a dollar and take a dip into the box full of brown paper bags, and try your luck on the specially selected gems chosen by Renae and Paul, from The Beatles, to Kate Bush and everything in between. This year another 500 quality-recycled records have been added into the mix from the stores huge collection of over 10000 records of all types including 7”s to 12”s across all genres with a record bargain for everyone.
It wouldn’t be Record Store Day without performances from local bands releasing vinyl. This year the store will play host to Sun God Replica with their recent vinyl release The Devil And The Deep, I, a Man playing tracks from their debut LP & vinyl release Gravity Wins Again, all of the Mighty Boys will squash into the store and Brisbane/Melbourne’s Dollar Bar will make a rare appearance performing tracks from Paddington Workers Club. Special guest DJs include Fraser A Gorman, British India DJs, Gupstar, Denver Max and of course Gringo & DJ REM. The famous Taco Truck will be accompanied by The Paradise licensed Bar, so you can have a beer and snack while you shop and listen to tunes throughout the day.
