ABICUS: Record Store Day

ABICUS: Record Store Day

Saturday, 21 April 2018


We are super excited about International Record Store Day this coming Saturday 21st of April. For those of you who haven’t heard of RSD, it is essentially the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music and support ‘bricks & mortar’ retailers. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and this year we have a swag of incredible releases due from the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Tim Buckley, Phoenix, The Stooges, Wu Tang Clan, Chet Faker, Courtney Barnett, Ornette Coleman and loads more.. as always it’s best to pop in early to get first dibs on all the goodness! We’re opening a little early at 9am. We will also be giving away free posters with any music purchase on the day (while stocks last), plus a limited edition heavy weight canvas Abicus record bag with the first 25 RSD purchases. Sure to be an awesome day!

Available at Abicus 9am April 21.
