Record Store Day: Put the needle on the record

Record Store Day is on Saturday 18 April 2015. For New Zealand events and releases, check out Dubdotdash's listing of Record Store Day events.

In Ōtautahi, Galaxy Records has Bad Evil live instore ("middayish"), and rare and collectable vinyl from the vaults. Pennylane Records will be celebrating over the weekend too, Lyttelton's Delaney Davidson will sign copies of his limited edition vinyl release Diamond Dozen at the Sydenham store, 11am.

The Library caters for music lovers well, we send you off to the record store better informed and give you the chance to try before you buy. See our Music section, opens a new window for more information - and don't forget next month is New Zealand Music Month, opens a new window (Martin Phillipps at Central Library Peterborough? Oh yes please).
