Last year was a fantastic celebration and we are going bigger and better this year as we approach our 2nd anniversary in the music business.

We will have a much larger number of the exclusive records this time. Exact titles will be known nearer the day. But it’s not just about the exclusive records!

We are celebrating what we love. A wide selection of music! The vinyl format, the grass roots record industry, the local bands and record labels as well as our fantastic regular customers that give our shop such a positive feel and of course our wonderful street.

We are proud to announce a fantastic line up of bands that will perform for us on the day.

* eagleowl
No space, no capitals. eagleowl are a lo-fi post folk ensemble from Edinburgh.

Any purchase in the shop will get you £2 off entry to Song, by Toad’s ‘Beer vs Records’ gig that evening.
