As Record Store Day approaches, the day celebrating independent record store culture, Fred Perry's gearing up with their own party on April 15th.
The influential clothing brand will take over popular cafe Chye Seng Huat Hardware for a day fit for all music lovers.
The central attraction of the party will be the vinyl marketplace, where distros and vinyl shops will congregate to sell their own curated selection of vinyl — Choice Cuts Goods + Coffee Blaccsmith Hq, Hear Records at Chinatown, KittyWu Records and The Analog Vault are all lined up.
Additionally, Hear Records at Chinatown's own Robin Chua, who guested on our recent RRR podcast, will present his sleeveface project in a debut exhibition titled #SLEEVEFACE.
But what good is a music event without live music? Ffion and These Brittle Bones are set to perform, while duo Candy Says and Matteblacc member DREM will set the mood with special DJ sets.
Rounding off are BooksActually and Knuckles & Notch, who will be on hand to sell some quality book titles and zines.
Taking place from 4pm to midnight, this will be the best way to prep for Record Store Day. Or, you know, just to hang out, listen to good music, receive some proper beer or coffee therapy, and buy some records — with free entry, simply as the Lord intended.
