Record Store Day @ Jumbo Records
22 Apr 2017 8:30am
This will be our first Record Store Day since our move to the Merrion Centre, so please note these new queueing arrangements. The shop will open at 8.30 am - possibly a few minutes earlier if everyone is ready! - but the Merrion Centre will be open from 6.30 am. If you queue before the shopping centre opens, please do so at the Wade Lane side - that's the side closest to our front door, near Charlotte's sandwich shop and the Key Club entrance. These shopping centre doors will open first, and we would ask that people walk the short walk up to the shop in an orderly fashion when the centre opens - no queue jumping, please!
Charlotte's, Greggs and Cafe Nero are all nearby for morning refreshments!
We have an expanded lineup of live appearances this year, featuring MANSION OF SNAKES, FLING, DRAHLA, HARKIN, FUSS, DEAD NAKED HIPPIES, BEHLA HUTCHINSON and HAILBAILS. This year we are teaming up with Leeds record label DANCE TO THE RADIO (who release a record on Record Store Day featuring Dead Naked Hippies, Fling, Lamia and Tiny Minds) and the KEY CLUB. The Key Club is right underneath Jumbo and most of the live music will take place in there. There is no charge to see any of the acts, and it is open to all, but please note that under-14s will need to be accompanied by an adult in the Key Club. Two acts - Behla Hutchinson and Hailbails - will play in the shop itself in the morning. The timings are as follows:
09.00 Behla Hutchinson
12.00 Dead Naked Hippies
16.00 Mansion Of Snakes
If you want to buy tickets or normal stock items you don't need to join the queue - we will serve you as and when you come to the left hand side of the counter.
As usual on Record Store Day, we will place some restrictions on what you can buy – each title will be limited to one per customer to allow a fair spread for everyone and cut down on any potential profiteering after the event, which is something that we are committed to trying to reduce as much as possible. The day is about music fans and the record shops that they support and should NOT be abused in an effort to make a quick buck.
We expect to have the vast majority of the special Record Store Day releases. However, we cannot guarantee how many of each title we will have in stock, and inevitably a small percentage of releases will not arrive on time, so if you plan to queue, please think of alternatives to your first choices to avoid disappointment.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
