We would like to announce Record Store Day 2011 which will take place on Saturday April 16th and as last year, will run through to Sunday April 17th.
For the uninitiated, Record Store Day is an event that originates in the U.S.A and is now in its 4th year in the U.K., celebrating the continued existence of independant record shops with lots of very ltd vinyl & CD releases exclusive to participating stores of which there are approximately 150 in the U.K. Sound Knowledge is the only participating store in Wiltshire and they will be hosting a weekend of live music with support from some excellent artists to mark the occasion.
Saturday 16th April – Open 9am with exclusive releases on sale – A list of what’s being released is available on the recordstoreday.co.uk website. If you would like further detail on any of the product then please call them on 01672 511106
Saturday 6pm – an exclusive performance by Nathaniel Rateliff who was recently awarded Time’s CD of the week. Nathaniel will be signing copies of his excellent new album – ‘In Memory Of Loss’ after he’s performed.
Sunday 17th April – 2pm onwards – Live music featuring Pineapple Thief (Yet to be confirmed), Jon Amor Blues Group & more.
The store will remain open throughout the weekend including during the live events, all of which are FREE! Please go down and support them and enjoy some great live music and help to make Record Store Day 2011 as successful as last years event. (Oh how the sun shone!)
Please confirm numbers if you know you wish to attend either or both of the live events. Walk-ups on the given day won’t be a problem but they prefer to keep an eye on numbers.
