Here are the plans so far. We will open at 9.30am and as before will hand out numbers to the queue and serve one at a time. The number of items sold per customer will be limited. Bowie single seems to be the biggest problem so I really would advise trying elsewhere for that.
Our first in-store will be Withered Hand at 2pm playing new songs and a “weird” cover followed by Gordon from Ballboy at 3pm playing new songs and a Withered Hand cover. As usual the wonderful Red Dog will provide the PA.
Hula will be providing refreshments during the day so nobody need go thirsty or unfed. Expect their fantastic juices as well as a fine selection of cakes and slices.
For the first time in a long time we will be playing vinyl in the shop thanks to James-Morrow who are based nearby in Tollcross. They are installing a new sound system for us as well as providing us with Rega turntables to sell in the shop.
Once the day is over in the shop we will be decamping to The Electric Circus for 7pm where the theme of new songs and covers will be continued first by Scott and Arwen from The Last Battle and then by the lovely Emily Scott. Last but not least Star Wheel Press will be celebrating having our biggest selling album of 2011 by playing a full set at 9pm.
Those of you who fancy celebrating your purchases with a Record Store Day pint will be able to do so at the Bow Bar (see also pic below).
As with the recent Frightened Rabbit in-store we will be collecting on the day for their charity the Cystinosis Foundation UK.
There will of course be more but that for now I think is quite enough !
