What The Basement Discs have in store for Record Store Day 2019

How is your record store different from other record stores? 

We are very fortunate to be in an amazing space which is spacious, welcoming and packed to the rafters with a great range of music on vinyl and CD, along with imported music posters, new and second hand music related books, and our very cool vintage and pre-loved clothing section – with great ambience, great staff and great service.  But I honestly think every record store is special and unique in their own way.

Are there any genres your store specialises in?  

We are very new release driven across almost all genres, but also strive to carry a really deep back-catalogue range, and of course a strong focus on Australian and independent artists.

What will be your most popular record on Record Store Day?

Most of the special RSD releases are generally the hot ticket items, particularly early in the day – and we are always very selective in terms of what we choose to order from these lists to ensure they really are ‘special’!  

Why is Record Store Day such an important day on the calendar?  

It truly is a day of celebration and recognition of just how much record stores add to the culture of this city. It’s so great to see so many smiling faces and music fans diggin’ through the racks and chatting to like-minded folk.

What do you have in store for Record Store Day 2019? Do you have any specials and will you have live music on the day?  

As usual, ours is a fun-filled, live music packed day with prizes, give-aways, RSD releases, a light refreshments bar (with profits going to RSPCA) and more. It’s a blast.
