This Saturday June 13th at 6PM The Record Centre Presents Les Petits Four.
In the 1950s, when French rock ‘n’ roll fans couldn’t follow English lyrics, they simply substituted them with ‘yeah, yeah, yeah!’ They had no idea they were creating a whole new genre of bubbly, humorous pop: yé-yé. This should be a really fun show, we are taping it Live to Tape so come and be part of our LIVE audience!
Come down to the shop at 6pm this Saturday to watch Les Petits Fours perform mid-century pop classics in the yé-yé style!
Lots of News. Several new “used” collections in the store. About 400 collectible LPs, including Japanese imports, Russian Imports (really!) British Imports, Boots, 45 Picture Discs.
We’d like to thank everybody who made it out to the HILOTRONS LP release party at the Blacksheep Inn on Friday. The event was a huge success, with over 200 attendees and nearly a hundred copies of the new album sold. We and the band are overwhelmed by all of the kind support we’ve received from you guys. Thank you! Hard Science’s visuals and openers Theaternia and Dark Plains were also astounding. The night couldn’t have gone better!
Furthermore, we’d like to thank those who came down to the shop on Saturday night for the Scattered Clouds LP release! Big ups to the band for putting on a fantastic show, and Ming Wu for capturing the evening with some stellar photos of the band (http://photogmusic.com/?p=32378).
Our next in-store is scheduled for this Sunday, May 10th at 4PM. We’re thrilled to have Montreal’s Les Deuxluxes perform at the store on their way back from performing at Canadian Music Week in Toronto! https://www.facebook.com/events/366447050230522/
Hey everybody! We’ve got a few friendly reminders for you:
The official LP release party for HILOTRONS’ To Trip With Terpsichore is this Friday at the blacksheep Inn! Don’t forget to pick up your tickets ahead of time to save a few bucks – we have ‘em available right here at the shop. We’re giving away 3 pairs of tickets tomorrow and all you have to do for a shot to win is show up and answer our secret question correctly! Also, we’ve just received confirmation that the LPs have been shipped and will in fact be here in time for the show. If you haven’t preordered a copy, don’t fret. We’ll have plenty at the merch table to go around. The show starts at 8:30PM, with openers Theaternia & the Dark Plains, and visuals by Hard Science. Don’t miss out! There is a bus going up; you can reserve your seat by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Seats are being snatched up quick so get on it! We’ll be giving away a signed test pressing of the album at the show, but you have to promise not to sell it online when it goes platinum.
The following evening is the highly anticipated Scattered Clouds in-store LP release show. The performance kicks off at 6PM and is PWYC. If you opt out, you’ll be making a serious mistake – the Hull electronic / experimental trio are quickly becoming a local favourite, and you’ll find out why for yourself! Their debut album entitled the First Empire will be available for purchase at the show. The forecast is looking amazing, making it a perfect day to spend in the hood and wrap up with a great live performance. DJ Wig will be spinning from late aft until the show starts. We hope to see you there!
