Wailin’ Wednesday: Record Store Day–April 18

Wailin’ Wednesday: Record Store Day–April 18

Fun fact: There are independently owned music stores celebrating Record Store Day this Saturday on every continent except Antarctica.

Record Store Day was instated in 2007 as an international day to celebrate independently owned music shops. What makes these little shops special is the passionate, knowledgeable staff and the records that they hand-pick to sell and share with the community. These are shops with music for every taste, from the newest albums to hard-to-find delights from the past. 

On Saturday, we’ll be joining the party. The Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store will have the doors open at 211 Bannatyne, on the corner of Albert, from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

When’s the last time you’ve nerded-out about music with a fellow fan? Come down and have a conversation with Marie-France and Chrys. They’re particularly excited about a selection of music they’ve got in from Ernie B’s Reggae and invite you to come check it out. Here’s a few they’ll have out:

  • ESG The Moody EP (12" vinyl)
  • J Dilla feat. Pharoahe Monch Love/Inst. (7" vinyl)
  • The Mothers of Invention Wollmann Rink, Central Park, NY, August 3rd 1968 LP
  • Joni Mitchell Live at the Second Fret 1966 LP
  • Bruce Haack The Electric Voice LP

There will be sales: 20% off music DVDs, 15% off box sets, $1 and $5 blowout CDs. And, as always, irresistibly low-price used vinyl!

F.C. Coconut will be spinning a mix of dub, ‘70s West African and Brazilian music all day. If you listen to his UMFM show Turkish Delight, you know you’ll be in for a treat.

Join us Saturday, April 18, 11:00 AM-6:00 PM at the corner of Albert and Bannatyne!
